Weiner on a Roll, at Top of the Heap in New Pre-Election Polls

JewishPress Logo

Anthony Weiner has soared in pre-election poll and now is sharing the lead with two other candidates, according to one poll, while a second survey puts him the lead.

Anew Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday puts Weiner in a statistical three-way tie with former frontrunner City Council Speaker Christine Quinn and former city comptroller William Thompson for the Democratic party nomination. The primaries will be held September 10, and there will be a run-off unless one candidate in the nine-candidate field can win a 40 percent plurality.

Technically, Quinn leads Weiner by two percentage points and is ahead of Thompson by three points, but the margin of error in the survey leaves all three of them in a more-or-less tie.

A new Marist/NBC/Wall Street Journal poll gives Weiner a five-point lead over Quinn, with 25 percent support from Democratic voters. Quinn received 15 percent support and Thompson was backed by only 13 percent of the respondents.

    While I mostly vote Democratic, I will never, Never, NEVER vote for Anthony Weiner. And you don't have to ask the reasons.

  2. Yossie Bloch says:

    Eh, really? A guy was creepy on the Internet? America loves actual adulterers, but virtual adulterers must retire?

  3. Charlie Hall says:

    I wouldn't vote for Mark Sanford either.

  4. Yossie Bloch says:

    That is a morally consistent position. But certainly you can see how one might shun Sanford and vote for Weiner– תלמוד בבלי מסכת קידושין דף מ עמוד א

  5. Charlie Hall says:

    I have more difficulty with the lies of Weiner and Sanford than with the thing they lied about!

  6. I'd support him for Brooklyn Borough President

  7. Chaiya Eitan says:

    He's a pervert. Shouldn't hold any public office.
