New York City mayor poll: Weiner cuts into Christine Quinn’s lead [ NYC aka The big Weenie ]
politico.com ^ | May 28 2013 | politico.com

Posted on 05/28/2013 2:27:14 PM PDT by NoLibZone

Former Rep. Anthony Weiner has slashed away at front-runner Christine Quinn’s lead in New York City’s Democratic mayoral primary, according to a poll released Tuesday, cutting her advantage in half in a little over a month.

Weiner, who formally entered the race last week, now draws 19 percent of the vote in the crowded primary field, according to the Marist University poll. Quinn, the city council speaker who is trying to become the city’s first openly gay mayor, draws 24 percent of the vote. Quinn’s lead is within the poll’s margin of error. In April, she held an 11-point lead over Weiner, 26 percent to 15 percent.

Few politicians are less likable and charismatic than Christine Quinn.

She reminds everybody of that inflexible, loudmouth bureaucrat they had a surreal and infuriating encounter with once.

I’ve never been to the Big Weenie(New York).
I’ve been to the Big Easy(New Orleans), but don’t plan on going to the
Big Weenie.

Typical Democrat politics...the frontrunners? A lesbian and an exhibitionist sex addict.
Why do we even know what these people’s sex preferences are?

NYC is almost as bad (well, they did have Rudy Guliani) as Pittsburgh. If Satan would run as a Democrat and even go as low as eat babies on TV and tie tin cans to cat's tails, Satan would still win because he is a Democrat. If Jesus Himself came to run as a Republican, Satan would still won. B-(

There are no good candidates being offered for the office of Mayor of New York City.

Now that we need you, Rudy Giuliani, where are you?

I don’t think even the Huffington Post is particularly enthusiastic about any of the current lineup.

And maybe a couple of them belong on Riker’s Island.

Is this the guy that walked into the car dealer and asked “Is this where I can buy a Hummer?”

That would be bigamy. He’s already married to a Huma.

But then, bigamy would be alright with NYC voters, too.

Wow, the dim-bulb-crats have certainly discovered that there is no lower bound to disgustingness.

Of course, the RINOblicans will put up some token loser...who will of course....lose.

Unlike Bloomers. Rudy did not run for more than 2 terms prefering to obey the law. Bloomers got Quinn, as head of the city council, to throw out the term limitation law the people voted for.

But the same people who voted for term limitations voted for bloomberg for that third term. So they got what they deserved.

Not surprising, considering Weiner ranks much higher on the Democrat immorality/eligibility scale.

Weiner is up for one of the stiffest and hardest campaigns in recent memory. His campaign is growing and he will soon be a head. Weiner will be hard to beat. New Yorkers must be swelling with pride.

He stands for the Gay community, and many in that community are standing behind him. He has consistently polled well in that community.

I wonder if this race will end up the same way as the marathon race between the lesbians and the gays?

In that race the lesbians won because they were off lickety-split while the gays were still packing their s**t.

The biggest mistake Gen. George Washington made was not burning that traitorous red coat town to the ground. I guess he left that job up to us.
