New Poll Puts Spitzer and Stringer in Dead Heat

Email a Friend

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.
