From the Morning Memo:

Nationally, Democrats are eager to re-take the congressional seat on eastern Long Island held by GOP Rep. Lee Zeldin.

But locally, there’s a primary campaign to take on Zeldin later this year among Democrats Anna Throne-Holst and Dave Calone.

A poll conducted by Anzalone Liszt Grove Research and released by Throne-Holst’s campaign shows her leading Calone among Democratic voters, 36 percent to 25 percent, an 11-percentage point lead ahead of the June primary.

At the same time, a full 39 percent of voters say they are uncommitted to either candidate or are still unsure.

Among “high-frequency” the poll found she leads Calone 48 percent to 22 percent.

Throne-Holst, though, has solid name recognition with voters in the district. A former Southhampton town supervisor, the poll found 40 percent of Democratic primary voters are familiar with Throne-Holst.

Calone, meanwhile, has 29 percent name recognition, the poll found.

The poll of 351 Democratic voters was conducted between Feb. 3 and Feb. 9; it has a margin of error of 5.24 percentage points.

Statewide, Democrats have rallied to Throne-Holsts’s candidacy, with nods from U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand as well as members of the state’s House delegation from Long Island and elsewhere.

Zeldin, a former state Senate, defeated Democratic incumbent Rep. Tim Bishop in 2014. The 1st congressional district has been considered a battleground for the last several cycles since the 2012 round of redistricting.

In Zeldin’s old Senate district in Suffolk County, Throne-Holst leads Calone, 41 percent to 25 percent.
