Weiner Gets 15 Percent Of Dem Vote In NYC Poll

Associated Press

NEW YORK Former Rep. Anthony Weiner would get 15 percent of the vote in a Democratic primary for the New York City mayoral race, according to a poll released Friday.

That puts Weiner in second place behind City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, whose support among Democratic voters is 28 percent, according to the Quinnipiac University poll.

But 41 percent of all city voters view Weiner negatively compared with 33 percent who view him positively and 23 percent who don't know enough to have an opinion.

Weiner resigned from Congress in 2011 over inappropriate tweets and other communication with several women.

He said in a New York Times Magazine piece last week that he was weighing getting into the race to succeed Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

1. I hope he flanks for Christine Quinn as she makes history, and keeps the others out.

 

And then I think a more appropriate job for him would be in Hillary Clinton's cabinet in 2017.

BTW, I remember when all those progressives loved him, so I would think they would be happy if he was in her cabinet too, but I cannot speak for them of course.

Someone made a good point in the local news-he has nothing to lose doing this, because even if he loses this time, it gets this off the record, and he can get along with his life.

So it puts the past behind him, and that would free him in the future.

It's not as if he were some fraudster like say John Edwards who should never be allowed to return.
Everyone loved Anthony in his prior office

and I would support him if the nominee, but I am in favor of Christine Quinn for Mayor winning the nomination, to make double history.

2. It's name recognition. They're both corporate DEMs. We keep electing the wrong people.

Then we complain.

Over and out.
