The election isn’t until November 2013…..
But it gives Democrat’s a chance to finally get a Mayor after 20 years of Republican’s….
Yea YOU saw that right….
The LAST DEMOCRATIC NYC Mayor was David Dinkins 20 YEARS ago!
The Republican’s are trying HARD to get the NYPD Chief Ray Kelly to run for them…..
Bill Thompson ( 3rd in the poll, back 30%) lost to Bloomberg 3 years ago by only 3% after Bloomberg spend over $130 Million
City Council Speaker Christine Quinn has jumped to a 20-pointed lead over her nearest rival in the 2013 Democratic primary for mayor thanks largely to a surge of support from voters in her home borough of Manhattan, a new poll shows.
A Marist College poll released last night put Quinn at 32 percent; former Comptroller Bill Thompson, 12 percent; Public Advocate Bill de Blasio, 10 percent; Comptroller John Liu, 9 percent; Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer, 7 percent and publishing executive Tom Allon, 1 percent. Twenty-nine percent were undecided.
