NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A new poll showed Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer edging ahead of former Gov. Eliot Spitzer in the New York City comptroller race.
The Quinnipiac poll released Wednesday showed Stringer with the anticipated support of 47 percent of likely primary voters, compared with 45 percent for Spitzer.
“The Democratic primary for New York City comptroller is no longer an Eliot Spitzer romp. Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer has made the comptroller race a nail-biter, too close to call,” Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, said in a news release.
