De Blasio Headed for Huge Win

New York City Public Advocate Bill de Blasio, the Democratic candidate for mayor, tops Republican Joseph Lhota 68 - 24 percent among likely voters, with few voters undecided or likely to change their mind, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. Independence Party candidate Adolfo Carrion has 2 percent.

This compares to a 71 - 21 percent de Blasio lead in an October 3 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University.

Today, de Blasio leads 54 - 42 percent among white voters, 94 - 5 percent among black voters, 79 - 10 percent, with 6 percent for Carrion, among Hispanic voters, 71 - 21 percent among women, 65 - 29 percent among men, 86 - 9 percent among Democrats and 55 - 33 percent among independent voters. Lhota takes Republicans 84 - 13 percent.

Only 5 percent of likely voters remain undecided and 8 percent of those who name a candidate say there's a "good chance" they will change their mind by November 5.
