The race to succeed Michael Bloomberg as New York City mayor is already virtually over, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday.
 
Democratic City Council Speaker Christine Quinn is so far ahead of her competitors — both fellow Democrats and Republicans — that it looks unlikely that she can be caught.
 
Her 32 percent is more than the combined total of the four Democrats who are also said to be considering a run in next year’s election. One of the four, Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer, who polled just 4 percent, announced he was dropping out of the race after the survey was completed.
 
“Christine Quinn leaves the other Democratic contenders in the dust,” said Maurice Carroll, director of the university’s polling institute.
 
But potential GOP candidates do even worse, according to the poll.
 
Metropolitan Transportation Administration chairman Joseph Lhota would lose to a generic Democrat by 60 percent to 9 percent while former Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion would lose 62 percent to 11 percent, the poll revealed.
 
Should Quinn win, she would become the first openly gay mayor of the country’s largest city. She would also be the first person running on the Democratic ticket to be elected mayor of the overwhelmingly Democratic city since 1989.
