Christine Quinn Leads NYC Mayoral Poll
With disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner now presumably out of the race, openly lesbian City Council Speaker Christine Quinn leads the latest Marist poll on who will succeed NYC Major Michael Bloomberg. Quinn faces fierce opposition from many of NYC's far-left and progressive contingents, some of whom see her as Bloomberg's obedient lackey. Nightlife and tenants groups also have some problems with Quinn.
