Democrat Bill de Blasio has a commanding lead in the New York City mayoral race, a new poll shows, but Republican Joe Lhota says he’s not panicking.
A new poll deemed the New York City comptroller showed Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer edging ahead of former Gov. Eliot Spitzer.
Bill de Blasio’s poll numbers are close to the magic 40% that would allow him to clinch the nomination outright. If no candidate crosses that threshold though, the top two finishers will advance to a runoff on October 1st.
The Quinnipiac University poll shows that among black voters, Spitzer leads Stringer by a three-to-one margin. The poll showed no gender gap.
This is the first time de Blasio has topped a poll in this campaign. He has surged past former leader Christine Quinn. The City Council speaker is second with 24 percent.
The Quinnipiac University survey released Wednesday shows 54 percent of likely Democratic primary voters support the Newark mayor.
His campaign manager has resigned and his political peers have harsh words for him, but Anthony Weiner has vowed to stay in the race for New York City mayor.
Weiner resigned from Congress in 2011 amid a texting scandal. He was caught sending racy pictures and messages to women who were not his wife. Spitzer resigned as governor amid a 2008 prostitution scandal.
The Quinnipiac poll also found that 62 percent of New York voters are worried that there will be another terror attack in the city.
Gov. Chris Christie has shattered another public opinion poll record by scoring a 74 percent job approval rating, the highest of any governor in 17 years of Quinnipiac University surveys.

Fifty-three percent compared to 40 percent of the registered voters surveyed in a Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday say Gov. Chris Christie would be a bad choice for Mitt Romney’s running mate.
In a Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday, 69 percent of the respondents said they would shop at a Walmart in the city if it was convenient, while 63 percent said city officials should allow a local Walmart to open.
