NEW YORK (AP) — A new poll shows Public Advocate Bill de Blasio (dih BLAH'-zee-oh) leading among likely voters in New York City's Democratic mayoral primary with 39 percent.
The Quinnipiac (KWIHN'-ih-pee-ak) University poll was released Monday.
It shows former Comptroller Bill Thompson in second place with 25 percent. City Council Speaker Christine Quinn is third, with 18 percent.
To avoid an Oct. 1 runoff, a candidate needs more than 40 percent in Tuesday's primary.
A Sept. 3 Quinnipiac poll showed de Blasio with 43 percent, Thompson with 20 percent and Quinn with 18 percent.
The latest poll was conducted from Friday through Sunday.
It surveyed 782 likely Democratic primary voters. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
