Christine Quinn reclaimed the top spot on the latest New York mayoral poll this week, as Anthony Weiner slumped to fourth place.
Quinn, who is the City Council Speaker, now holds 27 percent of the Democratic vote, ahead of the September 10th primary.
Public Advocate Bill de Blasio is in second place for the first time with 21 percent of the vote and former Comptroller William Thompson who has 20 percent of the vote. Weiner has a mere 16 percent, compared to his first place position with 26 percent in a July 24 survey.
In a Quinnipiac University survey released Monday, 53 percent of likely Democratic Primary voters polled said the former congressman should drop out of the race.
“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, according to the release.
“And with Wiener in free-fall, it begins to look like a three-way race again.”
If Weiner does to decide to drop out within the next few weeks, the odds still favor Quinn, who will receive 30 percent of the vote.
The poll was conducted July 24-28 on 446 likely Democratic primary voters.
