New Poll Has Progressive Bill De Blasio Running Away With NYC Mayor Race

A new Quinnipiac poll out today has New York City Public Advocate Bill De Blasio with a strong lead in the Democratic primary for mayor.

He is polling at 36%. That's close to the 40%
a candidate needs to win the September 10
primary outright and avoid an October runoff
against the second-place finisher.

City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, who
has been endorsed by all of the city's major
daily newspapers, is in a distant second at
21%. Former Comptroller Bill Thompson has
20%.

In potential runoff scenarios, De Blasio
easily leads both Quinn and Thompson.

Here are the horserace numbers:

Bill De Blasio: 36%
Christine Quinn: 21%
Bill Thompson: 20%
Anthony Weiner: 8%
John Liu: 6%

2. Weiner should drop out and support de Blasio.

If that last 8% of hangers-on for Weiner were to switch
it would put de Blasio past 40%. Come on Anthony do
the right thing!
