Today In Politics: Will Bill de Blasio Let Progressives Down?

Friday, November 01, 2013

Bill de Blasio, the frontrunner in the city's mayor's race has spent his career as a champion for progressive causes.  And he's used that profile to his advantage in the race.  The Democrat has been leading Republican Joe Lhota by nearly about 40 points or more -- and it's given political observers lots of time to assess the promises de Blasio has made and what kind of mayor he might be, should he win the election on Tuesday.

Today In Politics: De Blasio Surges Ahead in Poll

Wednesday, August 28, 2013

For the past few week, Bill DeBlasio's Democratic mayoral rivals have been hitting him pretty hard and now we know why. A new Quinnipiac University Poll has the public advocate leading the pack at 36 percent. His closest competitors, City Council Speaker Christine Quinn and former Comptroller Bill Thompson are polling at 21 and 20 percent.

WNYC's Anna Sale says the results are surprising. "Thirty-six percent is a big number," she said. "And at the start of this week there was a sense that Christine Quinn was recapturing some momentum with these big three newspaper endorsements from the New York Times, the New York Post and the New York Daily News."
