De Blasio Takes NYC Mayoral Lead

Is this goodbye, Weiner? According to a poll by Quinnipiac University, former underdog Bill de Blasio is now leading the New York City mayoral Democratic primary with 30 percent. With the primary just a month away, City Council Speaker Christine Quinn comes in next with 24 percent, former comptroller William Thompson has 22 percent, and former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner has dropped to 10 percent. White voters and those critical of the stop-and-frisk policies are de Blasio’s main supporters, with black voters supporting Thompson by a 17-point margin.
