Weiner Falls From First to Fourth in NYC Mayoral Race Poll

Disgraced Democrat Anthony Weiner drops to fourth place in the running for New York City mayor, according to a new poll from Quinnipiac University.

In the previous survey taken on July 24th, Weiner led the race with 26 percent of the vote.  Today, just 16 percent support the former congressman.

Weiner's fall has shot City Council Speaker Christine Quinn to the front with 27 percent.

The poll finds that fifty-three percent of likely voters think that Weiner should drop out of the race compared to forty-percent who believe he should stick it out.

"With six weeks to go, anything can happen, but it looks like former Congressman Anthony Weiner may have sexted himself right out of the race for New York City mayor," Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute says.

Mr. Weiner has refused to exit the race despite newly revealed "sexting" scandals that continued even after his resignation from Congress. He has said repeatedly that the voters of New York City will decide if he is the right person for the job.

Based on these numbers, with a majority of voters calling for him to drop out of the race, it seems they have already made up their minds.
