Christine Quinn slips to third in mayor’s race, amny-News 12 poll finds

Council Speaker Christine Quinn has slipped into third place among the Democratic candidates for mayor, while New York City Public Advocate Bill de Blasio leads the field and former Comptroller Bill Thompson is within striking distance, according to an amNewYork-News 12 poll released Thursday.

In the Republican race, Joe Lhota, the former MTA chairman, leads billionaire John Catsimatidis by a nearly 2-1 margin.

De Blasio, buoyed by the city’s most liberal residents for his opposition to the NYPD’s stop-and-frisk practices and from a family-centric ad campaign, has 29 percent support among likely Democratic voters, according to the poll conducted by Penn Schoen Berland. Thompson has 24 percent and Quinn is third with 17 percent.

“It’s a momentum game,” pollster Mike Berland said. “Clearly, de Blasio has momentum up, Quinn has momentum down and Thompson just hangs in there.”
