Quinn continues to lead 2013 Democratic field

Wanted to just break this out from the rest of the Quinnipiac results:

Regardless of who else is running, City Council Speaker Christine Quinn continues to lead all other rivals with Democratic voters. Among all voters, when added to the equation, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly remains at the top of the heap.

At this point, though, the 2013 polls remain mostly a name recognition game:

  • Police Commissioner Ray Kelly -- 25 percent, with 17 percent of Democrats;
  • City Council Speaker Christine Quinn – 17 percent, with 22 percent of Democrats;
  • Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz – 14 percent, with 15 percent of Democrats;
  • City Comptroller John Liu – 10 percent, with 10 percent of Democrats;
  • Former City Comptroller William Thompson – 8 percent, with 9 percent of Democrats;
  • Public Advocate Bill de Blasio – 6 percent, with 7 percent of Democrats;
  • Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer – 5 percent, with 6 percent of Democrats
