Weiner's Meltdown Opens Door for De Blasio

The demise of Anthony Weiner's attempt at a political comeback becomes increasingly obvious by the day, even if the former congressman doesn't seem to know it.

According to a Quinnipiac poll — conducted after Weiner admitted he had sent out suggestive messages on Twitter after revelations of similar "sexting" forced him to resign from Congress — only 16 percent of likely primary voters supported him for mayor. That's a 10-point drop from the 26 percent Weiner received in a July 24 Quinnipiac poll.

The biggest beneficiary of Weiner's implosion appears to be Bill de Blasio, the city's public advocate and campaign manager of Hillary Clinton's winning U.S. Senate race in 2000. De Blasio, the candidate considered farthest to the left in the field, jumped from fourth place to second in the recent polling, while Weiner's poll numbers plummeted.

So the most far-left wingnut gets elected because everyone loathes Weiner. Well everyone hated the guy who ran against Hitler, too.

How much further left can they go before they finally call themselves communists? The public gets stupider and stupider by the day. I guess they don’t know what communism is since they ain’t been taught about it.

It is a commie election, an election where the idiots in that city would rather choose between a guy who likes to show his weiner or a lesbian psycho who thinks she's a vampire rather than vote for a Republican. Then when they elect them they bitch and complain because they make life hell.

It’s not if the new mayor of NYC will be a jerk ... just which one will follow the biggest jerk of all .... the Bloomberg jerk. Maybe the Bloomberg will run for Schumer’s senate seat after departing as NYC mayor....a Democratic primary jerk run off.
