When word spread last week that former Representative Anthony Weiner was contemplating a mayoral run, the questions of what it meant for the electoral future immediately arose. How would his candidacy affect the race? Would the Democratic primary become a showdown between Weiner and Christine Quinn? Could people forgive the disgraced politician enough to elect him?
Well, as this was all happening, NBC and Marist University took to the streets (figuratively speaking, of course) to find out what Weiner's chances of success were. And, yesterday, those numbers came in with a report titled "Weiner Candidacy for Mayor Could
Scramble Democratic Primary Contest."
