NEW YORK (AP) - A new poll shows a dramatic falloff in support for former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer's comeback campaign to become New York City comptroller. He's now tied with Democratic rival Scott Stringer.

A Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday shows Stringer and the scandal-scarred Spitzer at 46% each among likely Democratic primary voters. Stringer is now Manhattan's borough president.

Spitzer had a 56% to 37% lead in a Quinnipiac poll released just 15 days ago. The latest results come less than two weeks before the primary.

The latest poll surveyed 602 likely Democratic primary voters between Aug. 22 and Monday. It has a 4%age-point margin of error.

Spitzer resigned as governor in a 2008 prostitution scandal.

The primary is Sept. 10. The general election is in November.
