The Democratic primary for mayor remains wide open, says Dr. Lee M. Miringoff, Director of The Marist College Institute for Public Opinion. It is likely to come down to who can punch their ticket for the runoff.
Majority Willing to Give Weiner a Second Chance How do registered voters in New York City react to Anthony Weiners candidacy when considering the sexting scandal that resulted in his resignation from Congress? A majority of voters 53% say he deserves a second chance. 39% believe Weiner does not have the character to be mayor, and 8% are unsure.
Among Democrats, 59% think he deserves a second chance. 58% of non-enrolled voters feel the same. However, six in ten Republicans 61% believe he does not have the character to be mayor. But registered Democrats divide when asked about their impressions of Weiner.

Weiner’s polls are rising again?????
LOL. His polls are inflated.
Boy this article is really pumping the Weiner.
NYC deserves him, if they elect him.
Uh huh... yep... right!
Just keep trotting out the press conferences were he VEHEMENTLY denied it, and blamed others.
I don’t know whether or not to root for him in the primaries
There is no reason to think that Weiner-man cannot get elected in NY State.
After all, voters reelected Barack Obama, the worst president in American history.
In Massachussets they elected Lie-A-Watha Fauxcahontas to the US Senate.
Connecticut voters elected Richard Blumenthal to the US Senate, knowing that he lied about serving in Vietnam (he never did)
NY State voters elected known liar and carpetbagger Hillary Clinto to the US Senate twice.
The boy must be pumped up!!
This should be a national republican ad.
Do you want a sexual deviant reprints no moral compass representing you? This is who the Democrats support for elected office.
(this is harder than I thought!)
If you vote for Weiner, you have to be nuts.
Headline writers are going to have a field day treating this idiot's candidacy like a horse race ...
Th same people who voted for Bloomie could hold forth a Weiner.
Hard times ahead for Weiner.
Being an alcoholic lesbian who abuses her staff(Quinn) or a lying narcissistic sexual deviant (Weiner) is not a hinderance with Democratic Party primary voters. No doubt they will run first and second in the primary election. Sadly one of them will probably be the next mayor of New York and transform the once greatest city in the world into another Detroit.
Hillary! will have to make a difficult choice between Weenie and DeVal Patrick for her VP in 2016.
that’s what she said.
How would you feel if you were one of the other Dem mayoral candidates who is actually losing to Weiner? Maybe if they called a press conference and then mooned the press, they could pull up even in the polls.
I can think of no reason at all why New Yorkers shouldn’t be smacked in the face by Weiner for years to come.
He’s perfect for them.
Weiner may just slide in there.
Isn’t there a typo in the name of the poll? Didn’t they leave out an “x”? Lol.
Is he rising in the poles?
Being Mayor of New York City is definitely not a missionary position.
Anybody know the election rules in NYC?
Does the most votes win or have to get a majority?
Definitely rising to the occasion.
Actually, it’s based on length... maybe some extra points for diameter...
With slogans like A WEINER IN EVERY BUN. And once elected you will RELISH ME. It no wonder this WEINER has risen in the polls.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
Anthony wins the election: Weiner wins by ...the skin of his.....oh, wait, I forgot...he’s Jewish....
Weiner’s growth, lead extended!
How about despot Mike Bloomberg? They complain “Oh the guy is a tyrant! He is making life hell!” Then he overturns term limits and what do they do? Reelect him again!
I think a high profile prostitute would have the best chance at winning .... at least she would be the only honest one running!
Another Weiner pun thread! I think we may need a (ahem) bang list!
Weiner is moving up.
Weiner is rising.
Weiner might make a fun mayor for New York. Got to be better than the guy they have now. Might be just crazy enough to really do something great. one thing, he will work harder to re-build his shattered reputation-—He might do a good job.
Fun? Crazy enough to do something great?
Are you nuts???
He’s married to Huma...he’ll be turning NYC into little Mecca!!
Weiner pulls a head!
Forget “New York,” use the new name: Wienerville.
