Going Retro…Mark Green Frontrunner for NYC’s Public Advocate
A blast from New York City’s political past has emerged as the frontrunner on the Democratic side of the race for Public Advocate. 35% of New York City Democrats say, if the Democratic primary for New York City’s Public Advocate were held today, they would vote for the former New York City Public Advocate Mark Green. Assemblyman Adam Clayton Powell, IV receives 15% of Democrats’ support with Civil Rights Lawyer Norman Siegel attracting 14% of the party’s electorate. City Councilmen John Liu and Bill de Blasio each receive 6% while Councilman Eric Gioia takes just 2%. 22%, however, are unsure about who they would back.
