New Poll Puts Spitzer and Stringer in Dead Heat

Thursday, August 29, 2013

The Quinnipiac University poll says the two candidates for comptroller, Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer and former governor Eliot Spitzer, are neck and neck -- with each carrying 46 percent of likely voters in the upcoming primary.

It's a big jump for Stringer, who was trailing Spitzer 56 to 37 percent just two weeks ago. And it comes after a slew of endorsements for Stringer, who's gotten a thumbs up from the New York Times, New York Post and Daily News.

The poll included about 600 likely voters and has a margin of error of four percentage points.
