*** Complete Tables for Poll Appended *** EMBARGOED UNTIL 11:30 P.M. on Tuesday, April 16, 2013 Contact: Lee M. Miringoff Barbara L. Carvalho Jaime Lynne Bishop Marist College, 845.575.5050

This NBC New York-Marist Poll of New York City reports: Nearly two years after resigning his Congressional seat due to a sexting scandal, how do New York City voters react to Anthony Weiner’s potential run for mayor? When he is included in the field of candidates for the Democratic nomination, Weiner receives the support of 15% of Democratic voters, placing him second after frontrunner Christine Quinn. Among registered Democrats in New York City, including those who are undecided yet leaning toward a candidate, if the Democratic primary were held today, here is how the contest would stand with Anthony Weiner in the race: • 26% Christine Quinn • 15% Anthony Weiner • 12% John Liu • 11% Bill de Blasio • 11% Bill Thompson • 2% Sal Albanese • 1% Other • 22% Undecided “Right now, a Weiner candidacy attracts double-digit support in the Democratic primary,” says Dr. Lee M. Miringoff, Director of The Marist College Institute for Public Opinion. “He makes it even more difficult for any of the Democratic contenders to reach the needed forty percent to avoid a run-off.” When Democratic voters are asked to select their preference in the primary for New York City mayor without Anthony Weiner in the race, City Council Speaker Christine Quinn continues to outpoll her rivals. However, her support has declined from a similar survey conducted in February. *All references to the survey results must be sourced as “NBC New York-Marist Poll”

Among registered Democrats in New York City including those who are undecided yet leaning toward a candidate, if the Democratic primary were held today, here is how the contest would stand without Anthony Weiner in the race: • 30% Christine Quinn • 15% Bill de Blasio • 14% Bill Thompson • 11% John Liu • 2% Sal Albanese • 2% Other • 26% Undecided When Marist last reported this question in February, 37% of Democratic voters including those who were undecided yet leaning toward a candidate supported Quinn. 13% backed Thompson, and 12% were for de Blasio. Nine percent supported Liu while only 2% backed Albanese. One percent was for another candidate, and 26% were undecided. To punctuate the fluidity of the Democratic primary contest, only 34% of Democrats who have a candidate preference are firmly committed to that candidate. 30% are somewhat behind their pick while 35% might vote differently. Two percent are unsure. In February’s survey, three in ten Democrats with a candidate preference -- 30% -- said they strongly supported their choice. 34% were somewhat in their candidate’s corner while 32% thought they might vote differently on primary day. Three percent, at the time, were unsure. When Weiner is not in the Democratic primary field, Quinn and de Blasio are each four percentage points higher, and Thompson has three percentage points more in support. Undecided is also four percentage points higher when Weiner is not listed as a candidate. A Redemption Story? Democrats Not Keen on Weiner Run for Mayor, But… As Weiner contemplates his return to elective politics, 40% of registered Democrats want Weiner to seek the mayoralty, while 46% do not want him to run. 14% are unsure. Citywide, only 37% want him to run, while 47% do not want to see him become a candidate for mayor this year. 16% are undecided. However, these numbers have improved for Weiner since a similar Marist Poll conducted last October. At that time, only 28% of registered Democrats wanted Weiner to throw his hat into the ring. 57% did not, and 14% were unsure. Among all registered voters, only one in four – 25% -- wanted Weiner to enter the contest for mayor and 58% did not want him to run. 17% were unsure. At the height of Weiner’s political difficulties in June 2011, 25% of voters wanted Weiner to run for mayor. 56% did not, and 19% were unsure. Weiner’s favorability has also improved.

In February, almost half of Democrats -- 49% -- had a positive opinion of Thompson.

How the Survey was Conducted Nature of the Sample: NBC New York/Marist Poll of 1,127 New York City Adults This survey of 1,127 New York City adults was conducted April 11th through April 15th, 2013. Adults 18 years of age and older residing in New York City were interviewed by telephone. Telephone numbers were selected based upon a list of telephone exchanges from throughout the city. The exchanges were selected to ensure that each borough was represented in proportion to its population. To increase coverage, this landline sample was supplemented by respondents reached through random dialing of cell phone numbers. The samples were then combined and balanced to reflect the 2010 Census results for age, gender, income, race, and borough. Results for adults are statistically significant within ±2.9 percentage points. There are 873 registered voters. The results for this subset are statistically significant within ±3.3 percentage points. There are 556 Democrats. Results for this subset are statistically significant within ±4.2 percentage. The error margin increases for cross-tabulations.
