An early poll shows City Council Speaker Christine Quinn maintaining her lead ahead of other Democrats in next year's race for mayor.
The Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday shows Quinn winning the support of 29 percent of the city's registered Democrats.
Participants in the poll were asked who they'd vote for if the election were today.
Three-out-of-10 said Quinn. Former city Comptroller Bill Thompson got 10 percent. Public Advocate Bill de Blasio and current Comptroller John Liu each won the support of 9 percent. Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer trailed with 4 percent, and newspaper publisher Tom Allon got 1 percent.
The university surveyed 1,298 randomly selected city voters by telephone from Aug. 8 to Aug. 12. The margin of error was plus or minus 2.7 percentage points.
