Liu’s campaign spokesman says that given the daily barrage of bad news, they’re “surprised his numbers are that good.”
Liu’s standing as a possible mayoral candidate remained unchanged. Forty-six percent said he would not make a good mayor.READ MORE: NYPD Officers Testify As Judicial Inquiry Into 2014 Death Of Eric Garner Gets Underway
