Once upon a time, former Governor Eliot Spitzer was leading the polls in the race to be NYC's next Comptroller. Now, he's in a dead heat against Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer.
According to a new Quinnipiac poll, both candidates have 46%. Also: "Today, there still is no gender gap: 48 percent of women back Stringer while 45 percent back Spitzer. Men go 47 percent for Spitzer and 45 percent for Stringer. White voters back Stringer 58 - 35 percent, compared to 53 - 43 percent August 14. Black voters back Spitzer 52 - 40 percent, compared to 68 - 21 percent two weeks ago."
Quinnipiac Polling Institute's Maurice Carroll said, "The entire political and media world has jumped on Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer's bandwagon, helping him poll-vault from 19 points down to dead even in just two weeks."
The primary is on September 10th. Here's our guide to the two candidates.
