He just couldn’t keep it up. Anthony Weiner's personal approval rating has fallen 20 percent in the three days since he admitted to his continued sexting with young women following his resignation from Congress. A new poll from NBC and The Wall Street Journal also shows his support in New York's mayoral race has plummeted 14 percentage points. City Council Speaker Christine Quinn now leads with 25 percent of Democratic support compared with 16 percent for Weiner. It’s the first poll conducted since the new revelations came to light. He also admitted Thursday that he traded X-rated messages with as many as three more women.
