Poll: Lopsided race for mayor in Big Apple

(CNN) - With just over six weeks until November's general election, a new poll indicates that Democrat Bill de Blasio has a commanding 43 percentage point lead over Republican Joe Lhota in the race for mayor of New York City.

According to a new NBC4 New York/Wall Street Journal/Marist survey, de Blasio, the city's public advocate, tops Lhota, the former chairman of New York's transit authority and deputy mayor to then GOP Mayor Rudy Giuliani, 65%-22% among likely voters. Independent candidate and former Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion stands at 3%.

De Blasio tops NY mayoral primary; Weiner distant fifth

New York (CNN) - New York mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio, who began his campaign as a long-shot but surfed a late wave of momentum by tapping into liberal anxiety over the three-term administration of Mayor Michael Bloomberg, overwhelmed his opponents on Tuesday to finish first in the city's Democratic mayoral primary.

With results still being counted late Tuesday evening, de Blasio, the city's public advocate, was bobbing around the 40% mark needed to avoid a three-week runoff race for the Democratic nomination.

Mayoral hopefuls spar over stop and frisk in debate

(CNN) – Candidates vying to become the next mayor of New York displayed deep disagreements in a televised debate Wednesday over the city's controversial stop-and-frisk searches, which a federal judge said earlier this month violate the Constitution by targeting minorities.

While all of the Democratic candidates have proposed reforms to the policy, frontrunners Christine Quinn, the City Council speaker: and Public Advocate Bill de Blasio sparred over the substance of how the controversial policy would change under their watch.
