POLL: Eliot Spitzer, Anthony Weiner Lead in City Comptroller, Mayoral Races

POLL: Eliot Spitzer, Anthony Weiner Lead in City Comptroller, Mayoral Races

The possibility of Anthony Weiner and Eliot Spitzer both representing New York City in public office by the end of this year seems to be growing with each new poll. In the latest Quinnipiac University poll, both Eliot Spitzer and Anthony Weiner are in the lead of their prospective races.

According to the poll, Spitzer garnered 48 percent of the votes in the race for city comptroller, putting him 15 percent ahead of Scott Stringer. Before former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer entered the city comptroller race, Stringer was believed to be the front runner. Despite Spitzer resigning as governor back in 2008 amid a prostitution scandal, the poll shows women back Spitzer 44 to 32 percent.

Weiner, meanwhile, leads the NYC mayoral race among Democratic voters with 25 percent of the votes. The Quinnipiac University poll has Weiner three points ahead of Council Speaker Christine Quinn with Bill Thompson and Bill de Blasio a distant third and fourth with 11 and 10 percent of the votes.

Could we be seeing Anthony Weiner as the next mayor of NYC and Eliot Spitzer as the next city comptroller? It's looking more and more like a real possibility.
