Bill de Blasio has turned around the election polls one day before the real vote and has a chance to win Tuesday’s election without a run-off, according to the new and last pre-elections survey conducted by Quinnipiac University.
De Blasio won 39 percent of the respondents’ support, one percent point short of the minimum 40 percent to avoid a second round. In number two place is Bill Thompson, with 25 percent, followed by former front runner Christine Quinn, with only 18 percent.
A Quinnipiac poll last week gave de Blasio 43 percent, and Thompson appeared to have won more backing at de Blasio’s expense in the election eve survey.
Anthony Weiner hardly ranks a mention, and former governor Eliot Spitzer is far behind Scott Stringer in the race for comptroller. Stringer has a seven-point percent lead.
