A new Quinnipiac poll finds Bill de Blasio leading the pack of mayoral candidates in the Democratic primary, with 30 percent of likely voters supporting him. Christine Quinn dropped to second with 24 percent. The poll also found him winning in a runoff election against Quinn, which is called if no candidate wins over 40 percent of the vote. De Blasio began advertising on television last week, but his popularity may be due to his stance on stop-and-frisk. He's also the only candidate to support a tax increase on the wealthy. Despite the poll, it was Quinn who took the most attacks in the mayoral debate last night. After all, a third of those polled said they may change their minds.
