Quinnipiac University Polling Institute is scheduled to release its first post-Weiner scandal poll of the Democratic primary in the New York City mayoral election at 4 p.m. ET Monday.
This will be the second major poll to reflect the impact of the sexting flap. A NBC 4 New York/Wall Street Journal/Marist College conducted in the immediate aftermath of revelations Weiner continued having explicit online communications with women after his 2011 resignation from Congress showed he had dropped nine points and lost his lead.
Quinnipiac’s last poll on the race was released Wednesday and was conducted just prior to the scandal spending days dominating the headlines. It showed Weiner in first place with 26 percent compared to 22 percent for City Council Speaker Christine Quinn and 20 percent for former Comptroller Bill Thompson.
