We've been waiting for one of the two campaigns in the 22nd Congressional District to release the findings of an internal poll -- typically, candidates withhold those findings until they've got good news to report.

The poll, by Anzalone Liszt Research was conducted from September 14 - 16 and relied upon 500 phone interviews with likely voters.

It also found that West's unfavorable rating is 26 percent, nearly triple what it was in May. The Klein campaign credits its recent ads highlighting West's history of personal financial difficulties and his "extreme" positions on reforming national entitlement programs.
