7/8: Green Light Among Democrats in Race for Public Advocate

mark-green-4Former New York City Public Advocate Mark Green would win handily if this year’s Democratic primary for Public Advocate were held today but falls just short of the 40% needed to avoid a runoff. 39% of Democrats say they would support him while 16% report they would back Civil Rights Attorney Norman Siegel.  City Council Members Bill de Blasio and Eric Gioia receive 9% and 8%, respectively.  28% of Democrats are unsure.  Each potential candidate received similar proportions of the vote back in May.
