New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner fell to fourth place with the majority of likely voters saying Weiner should drop out of the race, a new poll released Monday finds.
According to the latest Quinnipiac University Poll
, 53 percent of likely voters want Weiner to drop out of the Democratic primary for New York City mayor.
In the last Quinnipiac survey released July 24, Weiner led the mayoral race with 26 percent of the vote. In the poll released Monday, he's dropped to fourth place with 16 percent of the vote.
City Council Speaker Christine Quinn now leads the pack with 27 percent of the vote, in the poll taken from July 24 - 28 of 446 likely Democratic primary voters.
Even though it was recently discovered that Weiner had continued sexting after he resigned from Congress for the same behavior, he still refuses to drop out of the race for New York City mayor.
"With six weeks to go, anything can happen, but it looks like former Congressman Anthony Weiner may have sexted himself right out of the race for New York City mayor," said Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.
Quinnipiac notes that if Weiner drops out, Quinn will get 30 percent of the vote,
Comptroller William Thompson gets 22 percent, and Public Advocate Bill de Blasio will get 21 percent.
"With Weiner in free-fall, it begins to look like a three-way race again," Carroll added.
