De Blasio Surges Ahead in New York Mayoral Race

A new Quinnipiac poll in New York City finds Bill de Blasio (D) surges ahead of the Democratic pack for mayor with 36% of likely voters, followed by Christine Quinn at 21 percent, Bill Thompson at 20%, Anthony Weiner at 8% and John Liu at 6%.

De Blasio is very close to the 40% threshold needed to avoid a runoff.

Adds pollster Maurice Carroll: "If there is a runoff, he clobbers Christine Quinn or William Thompson."
