Two new polls find that appointed Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) could be in for a real fight in her 2010 campaign.

The new Rasmussen poll has Gillibrand just barely leading Republican former Gov. George Pataki, who has not gotten into the race as of yet: Gillibrand 44%, Pataki 41%, within the ±4.5% margin of error.

The Marist poll has Pataki ahead: Pataki 45%, Gillibrand 41%, with a ±4% margin of error. Rudy Giuliani, who is widely expected to run for governor, also leads Gillibrand in a trial match-up: Giuliani 51%, Gillibrand 40%.
