Gay Mayor Of New York City? Poll Shows Christine Quinn In Lead, Voters OK With Lesbian Mayor

City Council Speaker Christine Quinn continues to dominate New York City's Democratic primary.

According to a Quinnipiac University poll released last week, 37 percent of Democratic voters favor Quinn, meaning she's closing in on the coveted 40 percent mark needed to avoid a run-off primary.

In other good news for Quinn, 78 percent of New York City voters are either "comfortable" or "enthusiastic" about the prospect of an openly gay New York City mayor.

In fact, more New Yorkers are in favor of a gay mayor than they are with a business executive running the city. Only 57 percent of New Yorkers in the poll said they were "comfortable" or "enthusiastic" about the prospect of another Bloomberg-like candidate.

"When asked for a self-assessment, New Yorkers say they are remarkably unbiased," explained Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. "But they're true to one stereotype about a super-liberal city - only being a business executive draws significant negative votes in a mayoral candidate."

Bloomberg was recently named by Forbes as the 13th richest person in the world.

When recently told she would have faced defeat against former Mayor Rudy Giuliani in the 1990's due to her sexuality, Quinn defiantly responded, "I would’ve kicked his ass."

Come November, if Quinn wins the mayoral race, she will become the first female and the first openly gay mayor in New York City history.

Last May, Quinn married her longtime partner, Kim Catullo, in a New York City ceremony.

Would HARDLY be New York's first gay mayor...

If she wins, it will be for only one term.

I like her. I think she's a straight shooter and would make a terrific mayor.

Is she really guilty of all those atrocious things r2?

by Anonymousreply 803/06/2013

I hate her. Bloomberg paid her off to overturn the will of the voters and give him a third term. I lived in NYC and voted twice for mayoral term limits. I wish I still lived there so I could vote against Quinn.

It's a long time until the primary. The more people learn about Quinn, the less they'll want her.

Tacky that the great mayor has now done a commercial for Lifelock. Notice how they use YOU'RE incorrectly in the commercial.
