Anthony Weiner is gaining in the Democratic primary for New York City mayor, according to a new poll from Marist College.
The poll shows City Council Speaker Christine Quinn continues to lead, at 24 points, with Weiner slightly behind at 19 percent. That five-point gap is down from 11 in April, when Weiner’s potential candidacy first made news. At that point, Quinn led 26 percent to 15 percent.

A fine tribute to the denizens of NYC. A collection of more imbecilic idiots would not be found on this earth
Weiner is rising?
Weiner’s position is FIRMLY in place.
Funny, this article was posted right before:
“Most Americans Say Religion Is Losing Influence in U.S.”
If nothing else I’m sure that he’ll provide some STIFF competition. :)
If only he would include pedophilia in his list of assets, he’d win by a landslide there in the land of liberals.
I guess now she has even one more reason to hate Weiner...
Weiner inching up in polls.
Weiner will not be zipped.
Weiner/Holder democrat 2016
I think he’s the total package. I don’t want to be too hard on him. I don’t have a bone to pick with that guy.
I guess Weiner wants stick it out a bit longer.
At the rate we're going, especially if "the wiener" wins, Chicken Little has become our prophet. This is not a drill.
Good. I hope he’s elected. New York would go from a putz to a dork.
It shows you how the political race has changed. Remember it wasn’t that long ago when candidates would ask ‘Where’s the beef?’ You can’t ask that now!
Weiner said about New York, ‘Nobody will work harder to make it better.’ As opposed to his first campaign promise, which was ‘Nobody will work better to make it harder.’
Not beef, just a little canned spam.
People must start thinking on how we can control the type of voter electing the "Divine One" and probably this turkey. Identification, literacy tests, property qualifications, age restrictions, residency requirements must be imposed even if an Amendment to the Constitution is required. It is a matter of the salvation of the United States.
It really doesn’t matter who the Democrat nominee is...they’re all the same, and the Dem will win with the parasite vote and the Union Vote......same thing is happening across ALL of America, except for “Free States”, like TX and others in the South.
He'll get erected.
But is it Kosher?
You'd think this guy would have the decency to change his last name.
I imagine Huma Weiner would not disagree.
(If he changed it from 'Weiner' to 'Tune' she would become 'Huma Tune')
RE: But is it Kosher?
We might have to ask a rabbi to check it out :)
When I think of this guy, two words come to mind.
Pervert and stupid.
God has confounded our thinking and is actually punishing us by allowing Clintonista trash like Weiner and others like him to run for public service...
...and no one sees it for what it actually is.
The late-night comedians will have a ball with him. A real weiner roast.
NYC has come a long way from the days of Ed Koch and Rudy Giuliani.
But wait, looking back at least as far as Jimmy Walker, maybe Koch and Giuliani were really the exceptions.
RE: Pervert and stupid.
Makes me wonder what that makes those who vote for him...
Perversion and stupidity.
But if he is gaining for more than 4 hours, he should see a doctor.
They’re just doing what the people in South Carolina did when they voted for Sanford....forgot about their personal transgressions and just voted for them based on where they stand on the issues.
The next mayor of NYC will be named Bill. The two Bills are getting the union support, and the unions are *not* forgetting that Quinn is the reason Bloomberg got a third term.
Sounds about right.
You saying Joe Lohta doesn’t have a chance at all?
The future is as Detroit on the Hudson. The big banking houses and investment firms seem intent on re-hypothecating themselves and us out of existence. Remember that the auto industry was forever.
My wife wants to visit the city sometime. You know, the shows and the night life. Yuck!
I remind her of the Stones song — “Shattered.” “...bite the big apple don’t mind the maggots... bed bugs uptown..” Heck, we’d probably get mugged or some “terrorist” might explode a bomb not to mention NYC is an armpit.
My excuse is that it is expensive even though we could afford it if we saved our pennies. I’d rather spend that fortune somewhere else.
His wife is huma abedin (sp?) second highest at state under H! See m. Bachman s statements re this MB connected woman Then ask where is this disgraced NY congressman obnoxious and perverted by NY standards getting multi millions to run a serious campaign and able to get his wife (Muslim married to Jew) to stand by him and we just haven’t learned the lessons of the Clinton’s whose story these two follow and plan to follw to the top (WH). We think BO is bad? Whoa. Every joke on him he takes to the bank
This is a surprise. Campaigning with his past like is a heavy load. I thought he’d blow it.
I've only been back a handful of times, but my impression is that the "night life" is vastly overrated - expensive beyond all reason, unless you like $15-$20 cocktails and obscenely loud music. Broadway show tickets can run upwards of $200 apiece, though they can be had for considerably less.
On a nice day, you might check out Central Park and its zoo, and then up Fifth Avenue to the museums (the Guggenheim, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Natural History) or go downtown to Little Italy or for Asian food - the places can be crowded, but the food is often great and not outrageously priced. If you want to visit the World Trade Center memorial, you have to get tickets in advance (they're free, and available online).
Daily parking rates seem to be about $30-$35 these days, and then navigate the subway system or crosstown buses to get where you want to go. Definitely would not want to live there today - I'm not young or rich.
Weiner grows as he eyes behind Christine.
The MB is heavily invested in Weiner’s success, hence the narrative being structured this early to appear his poll numbers reflect potential for success.
DC is better and that was first on our list. We have been to DC a couple of times and have enjoyed it.
If Minnesota can have a professional wrestler for governor and a not funny jerk of a comedian for US senator,
weiner fits right in. He can only effect a city, not a state or the senate....
What are the chances that the average New York has even heard of him? (I actually had ... once, I think.) The other guy in GOP race has all the money and the radio ads at the moment. Does Lohta have a shot at getting the nomination or have the party bosses decided all that behind closed doors. (I know that there's a primary -- Bloomberg had a primary once, too, against Herman Badillo, who would've been a better mayor.)
