Poll: NYC Democratic comptroller race a near tie

September 4, 2013

NEW YORK (AP) — A new poll finds the battle for the Democratic nominee for New York City comptroller is "too close to call."

The Quinnipiac (KWIHN'-ih-pee-ak) University survey shows Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer with 47 percent and ex-governor Eliot Spitzer at 45 percent.

The survey of 750 likely Democratic primary voters has a margin of error of 3.6 percentage points, which exceeds Stringer's slim lead.

Competing polls have shown differing views of the race.

Quinnipiac's previous poll, last Thursday, had the two men each at 46 percent.

But a poll released the next day by Siena College and The New York Times showed Spitzer up handily, 50 to 35.

Both of those polls had a margin of error 4 percentage points.

The primary is Sept. 10.
