Today’s Marist Poll shows Thompson trailing Bloomberg 16 percentage points, with 36 percent of voters saying they’re leaning towards Thompson and 52 percent leaning towards Bloomberg. Last month’s Marist poll showed Bloomberg leading by just 9 percentage points.
Here’s what Azi Paybarah noticed:
So, things are trending in Bloomberg’s favor. He’s even leading among Democratic voters, 47 to 39 percent.
Another figure that stood out to me: 62 percent of Thompson supporters think Bloomberg will win.
Regionally, Bloomberg is carrying Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan by significant margins. In each of those areas, Bloomberg is above 50 percent while Thompson is below 40. In Staten Island, it’s 56 to 41 for Bloomberg. And in the Bronx, Thompson leads, but with only 43 percent. Bloomberg is polling there at 40 percent.
