Poll: Majority Of Weiner's Constituents Think He Should Stay In Office


Two polls taken just hours after Weiner's announcement that surveyed New York City residents, and not just those from Weiner's district, found conflicting results about whether the congressman should resign.

In addition, the poll found that 46% of Weiner's constituents think his actions showed a failure of personal judgment, while 10% said it was a reflection of poor professional judgment, and 29% said it was both.

The poll also comes one day after a number of Democratic lawmakers, including . Rep. Allyson Schwartz (D-PA), who serves among the leadership of the DCCC, publicly called on Weiner to resign.

Earlier Thursday, Weiner reiterated to the New York Post that he did not plan to resign.

The Marist poll was conducted June 8 among 411 registered voters in Weiner's district. It has a margin of error of 5.0%.
