wpid-image.jpgAccording to a new poll out of Quinnipiac University, Anthony Weiner has now shrunk to fourth in the polls amongst candidates running for New York City mayor.  Additionally, 53% of respondents believe he should drop out of the race altogether.

Via Quinnipiac:

Congressman Anthony Weiner drops to fourth place among likely Democratic primary voters in the race for New York City mayor as these likely voters say 53 – 40 percent he should drop out, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.

There is almost no gender gap, but a wide racial gap on this question: Women say 54 – 42 percent that Weiner should drop out, compared to men at 52 – 37 percent. But black voters say 53 – 42 percent that Weiner should stay in the race, while white voters say 64 – 25 percent he should get out.

Weiner gets 16 percent of likely Democratic primary voters today, compared to his first- place position with 26 percent in a July 24 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe- ack) University.

Check out the actual poll here…

Christine Quinn – 27%

Bill de Blasio – 21%

William Thompson – 20%

Anthony Weiner – 16%

My understanding is that if Weiner does not drop out, and remains in the erection for another four hours he’ll have to see a physician.
