Now we know why the attacks against de Blasio have been so hard and heavy from the establishment - it's because he's pulling away.
Not only is de Blasio in the lead, besting his next closest opponent Quinn by 15 percentage points, he's closing in on the magical 40% to avoid a runoff.
If the Q poll numbers are anywhere close to accurate, Quinn is finished:
In a runoff, de Blasio beats Quinn 59%-30%
In a runoff, de Blasio beats Thompson 52%-36%
In a runoff, Thompson bears Quinn 57%-33%.
It's just one poll - Marist and Siena should be out soon too.
But this poll suggests that the NY Times endorsement didn't help Quinn.
Or the Billie Jean King endorsement.
