Meanwhile over in the NYC mayoral race, former Congressman Anthony Weiner is leading in the polls.
A new mayoral poll shows that Anthony Weiner, the (disgraced) former Congressman-turned-pun magnet, has a small lead over City Council Speaker Christine Quinn. Which might mean there will be a runoff—guess he was right!
It's the first time that anyone but Quinn has led the polls, and this poll is from the Wall Street Journal/NBC New York/Marist. The WSJ reports, "Just two years after a sexting scandal derailed his career, Mr. Weiner garnered 25% of registered Democrats polled, compared with Ms. Quinn, who had 20%, marking her lowest level of support since polling of the race began. Trailing them were former Comptroller Bill Thompson, at 13%, Public Advocate Bill de Blasio, 10%, and city Comptroller John Liu, 8%... In a potential runoff matchup, Ms. Quinn leads Mr. Weiner, 44% to 42%; a month ago, the margin was much wider, with Ms. Quinn winning 48% to 33%."
