Anthony Weiner leads in latest NYC mayoral poll

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) -- New York City mayoral hopeful Anthony Weiner is leading his Democratic rivals in a new poll.

The Wall Street Journal/WNBC/Marist survey shows the ex-congressman ahead of City Council Speaker Christine Quinn for the first time.

As recently as May, a Marist poll showed Quinn leading Weiner 24 percent to 19 percent.

The poll shows voters are ready to give Weiner a second chance two years after a sexting scandal derailed his career.

Weiner captured 25 percent of registered Democrats polled. Quinn got 20 percent. Trailing them were Ex-Comptroller Bill Thompson with 13 percent, Public Advocate Bill de Blasio 10 percent and Comptroller John Liu 8 percent. Twenty-four percent were undecided.

The poll surveyed 689 registered Democrats June 17-21. It has a margin of error of 3.7 percentage points.
