Weiner and Spitzer Lead in New York Races

WaPo reports:
Former congressman Anthony Weiner and former governor Eliot Spitzer are leading in their respective Democratic primaries in New York, according to a new poll from Quinnipiac University. 
The poll shows Weiner in the lead for the first time in the mayor’s race, though his lead is within the margin of error. Weiner is at 25 percent, while City Council Speaker Christine Quinn is at 22 percent.

Bill Thompson, the 2009 Democratic nominee, is at 11 percent, while Public Advocate Bill de Blasio is at 10 percent.

In the comptroller’s race, which Spitzer joined last week, he leads Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer 48 percent to 33 percent. That finding mirrors a Marist College poll released last week.

Both men lead in part because of their large advantage among male voters.


  1. It seems the former Manhattan madam, Kristin Davis, whose services Eliot Spitzer used, is having to abandon her old career and run for political office. Every time she thinks about him she Spitzer Weiner...

  2. I bet if Weiner gets in for a while, Spitzer will soon follow.
