Weiner's support drops amid sexting scandal: poll

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - A new poll suggests Anthony Weiner's new sexting scandal is taking a toll on his New York City mayoral prospects.

He's fallen behind City Council Speaker Christine Quinn in the Democratic primary race, and Democratic voters are split on whether he should drop out of the race.

The NBC 4 New York/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll was released Thursday. It's the first poll conducted entirely after new disclosures about Weiner's online dalliances.

He left Congress in 2011 over racy online exchanges he'd had with women. He acknowledged Tuesday his indiscretions continued last year.

Earlier, Weiner was near the top of most polls. The new one shows Quinn leads him 25% to 16% among registered Democrats.

The poll surveyed 551 Democrats Wednesday. The margin of error is 4.2%age points.
