NY Times/Siena Poll: De Blasio Leads

Friday, August 30, 2013

The Siena College Research Institute is collaborating with the New York Times on the 2013 New York City Mayoral Election Surveys. The series of polls will gauge the attitude of New York City voters on the candidates and issues in the major party primary elections.

The most recent poll shows that Public Advocate Bill de Blasio has opened a large lead over his competitors in the race for the Democratic nomination to become New York City’s next mayor, according to The New York Times/Siena College Poll. The poll features the attitudes of likely New York City Democratic primary voters on the races for the Democratic nomination for Mayor and Comptroller. The full release is available on SRI’s website.

De Blasio has the support of 32 percent of likely Democratic voters, compared to 18 percent for former City Comptroller Bill Thompson, 17 percent for City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, 11 percent for former Congressman Anthony Weiner, and three percent for City Comptroller John Liu. One in six voters remains undecided. Voters also comment on which candidate would handle specific issues the best including making the City more affordable, working to keep New Yorkers safe and creating jobs.
