Anthony Weiner would get about 15 percent of the vote if the Democratic mayoral primary were held today, putting him second only to City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released this morning.
Most of the questions from reporters, though, was about Anthony Weiner, the former congressman who resigned his seat in 2011 because of a sexting scandal involving a variety of women.
