The ultra progressive,  de Blasio, who wants to tax the heck out of the rich has increased his margin of the vote over another wacky progressive, Quinn, who promised New Yorkers bigger and stronger condoms.

Politicker  reports if there was any question that Bill de Blasio is the mayoral race’s new front-runner, there isn’t any more.

A new poll conducted by Quinnipiac University has the city’s public advocate with 36 percent of the likely Democratic vote, placing him within reaching distance of avoiding a widely-expected runoff election.

The two other leading Democratic candidates, Council Speaker Christine Quinn and former Comptroller Bill Thompson, posted 21 and 20 percent respectively. Former Congressman Anthony Weiner earned just 8 percent, while current Comptroller John Liu trailed with 6 percent.

“Talk about breaking out of the pack!” pollster Maurice Carroll said in a statement acknowledging Mr. de Blasio’s quick rise. “Public Advocate Bill de Blasio, in fourth place just five weeks ago, is edging up on the magic 40 percent needed to avoid a Democratic primary runoff. And if there is a runoff, he clobbers Council Speaker Christine Quinn or former Comptroller and 2009 Democratic challenger William Thompson.”

If the numbers mirror the candidates’ internal polling, they help explain the increasingly negative tone of the race, which has featured frequent shots at Mr. de Blasio in recent weeks.

There isn’t a dimes worth of difference between de Blasio and Quinn.  Both would return New York back to the bad old days of David Dinkins when murders were 2,600 a year.  New Yorkers will reject that.
