The significant thing is this poll is that Quinn and de Blasio are in first and second place….
A poll a few days ago had de Blasio leading and Quinn in second….
Thompson is now stuck in third with Weiner again in fourth….
If thos keeps up look for a runoff between de Blasio and Quinn….
Ok….let me step back since over 50% of the voters polled are NOT sure of their vote….
Lets say the the top four are STILL in it….
Ads are coming up in the media now
Bill Thompson has not been gettting ALL of the black vote up to this point…..
As Weiner flounders, the race’s momentum has turned in favor of de Blasio, a liberal, outspoken critic of Mayor Michael Bloomberg and New York’s policing tactics — particularly stop-and-frisk, which a federal judge deemed unconstitutional this week. De Blasio’s turnaround is due in part to a swell of support from black voters; 20 percent of black Democrats said they’d vote for him, up from 10 percent last month.
His surge in the polls has come as he has sought to showcase his racially mixed family on the trail, and released an ad narrated by his teenage son, Dante.
Thompson, the only black candidate in the race, has the support of 22 percent of black Democrats, the poll found.
De Blasio now stands as the race’s best-liked candidate, with 59 percent of Democrats saying they had a favorable impression of him, and 14 percent saying they didn’t.
Quinn, by contrast, has seen her image deteriorate. Once the clear front-runner, she is the Democratic candidate with the closest association with Bloomberg, and now suffers from a rising unfavorability rating. In February, 17 percent of Democrats said they didn’t think positively of her; this week, the number jumped to 32. Still, 54 percent of Democrats said they had a favorable impression of her.
And then there’s Weiner, who has hit an all-time low: 26 percent of Democrats said they thought highly of him, and 63 percent said they did not.
That’s quite a fall since June, when a NBC 4 New York/Wall Street Journal/Marist Poll showed Weiner leading the primary field. Back then, 52 percent of Democrats said they had a favorable impression of him, and 36 percent did not.
With the Sept. 10 primary drawing closer, and small margins separating the leading candidates, it seems likely that none will receive the 40 percent of votes needed to avoid an Oct. 1 runoff.
The campaign also appears vulnerable to more dramatic swings: only 43 percent of Democrats said they were firmly committed to their choice of candidates…..
