With all the talk about the unelectability and ulikeableness of Christine Quinn, this might very well be the next face of NYC…
A new Quinnipiac poll in New York City finds Bill de Blasio leads the Democratic race for mayor with 30%, followed by Christine Quinn at 24%, Bill Thompson at 22%, Anthony Weiner at 10% and John Liu at 6%.
Said pollster Maurice Carroll: "A few weeks ago, Public Advocate Bill de Blasio looked like an also-ran. Today, he’s the leader of the pack, and a winner in the runoffs. Follow the bouncing ball, folks. This line-up keeps changing."
80% disapproval for Weiner.. four more weeks and he’ll be gone…
“Weiner has set a new all-time Siena College Poll record with 80 percent of voters viewing him unfavorably — including three-quarters of Democrats and New York City voters — compared to only 11 percent who have a favorable view of America’s most infamous tweeter,” Siena College pollster Steven Greenberg said in a statement.
Like we don’t understand that this is a yes…
But will this down in flames defiancy last until September… We’ll see… someone close to him should talk him straight.. he needs professional help…
In an interview with the New York Daily News, Anthony Weiner evaded a question about whether he is still sexting women online.
Q. There is no one you are sexting now?
A. You can quibble about beginnings, middles and ends but what we’re talking about is over a year ago.
This isn’t working for Weiner…. this kind of flat out dismissal of objections looks bullish and strange..
The longer Anthony Weiner continues his New York City mayoral bid, the more heated exchanges with voters he’ll have.
Here’s the video via Gawker:
Let’s hope the pressure mounts.. and Weiner bows out.. this is provocative and annoying..
David Axelrod, a former senior adviser to President Obama, said Sunday that Former Rep. Anthony Weiner was “delusional” and should drop out of the race for New York City mayor.
"I think it’s time for him to go away and let New York have its mayor’s race," Axelrod said on NBC’s "Meet the Press."
Axelrod said he had not commented on Weiner because he is personal friends with Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, but he said the time has come for him to stand down.
"At this point it’s absurd. He is not going to be the next mayor of New York. He is wasting time and space," Axelrod said.
This is an instant classic:

The often labeled next-after-Hillary favorite for Democratic Candidate in 2016, Gov. Andrew Cuomo of NY has held a very low profile during this campaign… no spotlight at the convention in September… and no national media…
That seems to be changing now – which is brilliant timing and planning by Cuomo…

Mr. Cuomo with Mr. Obama at the State University of New York at Albany in May….
It’s NEVER too late, Eh?
The below the radar New York State Governor , that could very well run in 2016, has been pressed into service by the Obama campaign to spread the word about the President in swing states.
Of course this will be a coming out thing for Cuomo ……
Mr. Cuomo, a Democrat, said Thursday that President Obama’s re-election campaign had asked him to travel outside New York as a surrogate for the president in the final weeks of the race.
But Mr. Cuomo said that nothing he did on Mr. Obama’s behalf should be viewed as evidence that he was laying the groundwork for a presidential run of his own.
