New today from Ipsos Polling:
In the race to be the next mayor of New York, a new Ipsos poll shows Eric Adams appears to be in the best position to win Tuesday’s Democratic primary. He has the advantage due to a combination of solid name recognition and strong marks on dealing with the most important issue in the minds of voters, crime and safety.
However, with ranked-choice voting premiering this election, the contest is far from over. Adams currently is the first choice for only about a quarter of likely Democratic primary voters. This means there is significant opportunity for voters’ second, third, fourth, and fifth options to swing the race.
Read the full article. Some NYC outlets have said it may be weeks before the primary winner is known.
New Ipsos poll numbers in the race for mayor: Adams 28%, Yang 20%, Garcia 15%, Wiley 13%, Stringer 8%, Donovan 5%, McGuire, 5%, Morales 1%. While Adams leads, Ipsos notes Yang and Garcia still have “potential paths to victory.” https://t.co/xyoWgH6cku
