Weiner Grilled in Polls, Drops to 4th Place

The latest sordid details of Anthony Weiner’s sexting, after he already had quite Congress over the first publication of the scandal, have dropped from from first place in the latest New York mayoral race polls published by Quinnipiac University.

City Council Speaker Christine Quinn has retaken her previous place at the top of the pack, with minority support of 27 percent, compared with 21 and 20 percent respectively for Public Advocate Bill de Blasio and former Comptroller Bill Thompson. Weiner received only 16 percent.

“With six weeks to go, anything can happen, but it looks like former Congressman Anthony Weiner may have sexted himself right out of the race for New York City mayor,” said Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

    THERE ARE STILL MANY WHO THINK HE IS THE BEST MAYORAL CANDIDATE..THAT INCLUDES ME..WHY? HE HAS THE POLITICAL EXPERIENCE..THE BRAINS..AND.
    IS SOMEONE WHO CAN GET THINGS DONE IN NYC.
    SURE HE NEEDS SOME THERAPY..WHO DOESN'T? BUT HE IS WAY ABOVE THE PUNY.
    FIELD WHO OPPOSE HIM…IF WE CAN FORGIVE JFK FOR S…..G EVERY WOMAN.
    WITHIN HIS FIELD OF VISION FOR ALMOST 4 YEARS IN THE WHITE HOUSE.
    AND FORGIVE CLINTON FOR SEXUAL HARRASSMENT WHY NOT FORGIVE.
    WIENER? HE NEVER CARRIED OUT AN ALDULTEROUS RELATIONSHIP.
    AND IT LOOKS LIKE HIS WIFE FORGIVES HIM..SO WHY NOT NYC?
    I STILL THINK HE WILL GET THE JEWISH VOTE…AND IT WILL BE A CLOSER.
    PRIMARY THAN ONE THINKS.

    'Forgive JFK'? How about his brother who killed a young girl when he left her to drown. Forgive Clinton for having committed rape. Where does your forgiveness end?
    The only weiner I accept is the one I cook on my outdoor bbq. If he gets the majority of the Jewish vote then that says much about the moral attitude of the Jewish voter doesn't it?

  3. Anonymous says:

    Are Jews in NYC so tribal that this guy still has any support? He's an imbecile. He was a completely unsuccessful Congressman. He was a grand-stander. He's a pathological liar. He's only sorry he got caught. This is the same city that elected Ed Koch? Shame on you, 16%. Maybe Israel doesn't need North American aliyah if this is how far they've fallen.
