Poll: Weiner falls to fourth place in Democratic primary for mayor

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Rep. Anthony Weiner has tumbled to fourth place among likely Democratic primary voters in the race for New York City mayor, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll.

The poll, released Monday, follows revelations that he continued to send dirty texts and photos to women online even after he resigned from Congress in 2011.

"With six weeks to go, anything can happen, but it looks like former Congressman Anthony Weiner may have sexted himself right out of the race for New York City mayor," said Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. "And with Wiener in free-fall, it begins to look like a three-way race again."

Weiner now holds 16 percent of likely Democratic primary voters, compared to a July 24 Quinnipiac survey that pegged him in the lead with 26 percent.

The survey also shows that 53 percent of likely voters say Weiner should drop out of the race.

City Council Speaker Christine Quinn in the lead, with 27 percent of the likely voters, ahead of Public Advocate Bill de Blasio (21 percent), former Comptroller William Thompson (20 percent), and others.

Quinnipiac University surveyed 446 likely Democratic primary voters between July 24 and July 28. The margin of error is +/- 4.6 percentage points.
