    An early poll in the 2013 mayoral race shows that City Council Speaker Christine Quinn is leading her potential Democratic competitors by 20 percentage points.

    The NY1-Marist poll released Monday found that 32 percent of city Democrats say they'd support Quinn in the 2013 primary.

    Former city comptroller and 2009 Democratic candidate Bill Thompson follows with 12 percent, and Public Advocate Bill de Blasio, Comptroller John Liu and Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer are close behind.

    Publisher Tom Allon is named by 1 percent.

    Of the Democrats surveyed, 29 percent are undecided. Republican candidates weren't included in the poll.

    The telephone survey conducted April 10 to 17 included 402 registered Democrats whose answers have a margin of error of plus or minus 5 percentage points.
