Bill de BlasioPublic Advocate Bill de Blasio has taken a runoff-proof lead in the Democratic primary race for mayor of New York City, according to a new Quinnipiac University survey released Tuesday. 

De Blasio is at 43% in the new poll, his highest standing ever. If he manages to earn that percentage of the vote in next Tuesday's primary, he would avoid a runoff with the second-highest candidate in the Democratic field. He jumped from 36% in last week's Quinnipiac survey
