Weiner Goes from First to Worst in New Poll

Among major candidates, the former congressman is now lagging

Print Email
(RedStateReport)

As Anthony Weiner remains defiant about remaining in the New York City mayoral race following last week’s latest, latest revelations, a new Quinnipiac pole poll may just give him pause. Not only has candidate Weiner has dropped from first to fourth among the four leading candidates–an inevitable and survivable hit–but likely Democratic primary voters also urged him to drop out by a count of 53-40%.

There is almost no gender gap, but a wide racial gap on this question: Women say 54 – 42 percent that Weiner should drop out, compared to men at 52 – 37 percent. But black voters say 53 – 42 percent that Weiner should stay in the race, while white voters say 64 – 25 percent he should get out.

Weiner gets 16 percent of likely Democratic primary voters today, compared to his first- place position with 26 percent in a July 24 survey…

The two biggest beneficiaries of Weiner’s stumble here are City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, who rose to 27% from 22%, and Public Advocate Bill de Blasio, who shot up to 21% from an anemic 15%. In other news, nobody seems to know who Sal Albanese is.
