  •  Yep. That's exactly what I was expecting about Liu (1+ / 0-)

    was that he was having some difficulty raising money. That probably led him to take shortcuts, which came back to bite him in the ass.

    Great question.  (7+ / 0-)

    I like Liu. I really do like the guy a lot. Six years ago I told him if he wanted to be Mayor, i'd work for him. Love the guy...great family. Absolutely solid on the issues. Whip smart.

    I suspect though that with his ethics problems he's having a hard time raising money. You aren't seeing any of him outside of his Queens base. He's just not moving in the polls, and that's a shame because I think he'd be a damn good Mayor.

      if they decide he has no chance to make the runoff, do they go to de Blasio or do they get spread around?  My gut reaction is that this probably helps de Blasio finish 2nd.  What's yours?

      •  It significantly helps DeBlasio is my gut guess. (2+ / 0-)

        I haven't seen any second choice polling. I can only tell what I see on the ground is that the four guys working my neck of the woods are Liu, de Blasio, Thompson and Weiner. My district here in Bed-Stuy is what you would call one of your 'base' districts. Mostly Black voters as well as youngish, white liberals, on the higher end of the income scale with lots of long-established homeowners and small businesspeople. Its also got a lot of union retirees and public sector workers. As well as three active Democratic Clubs dating from the great Shirley Chisolm's days. My reading is that Thompson will win this district, followed by de Blasio then Liu. Weiner is done. Just completely finished around here. I doubt his staff will be back as they retreat to Queens.
