Talking Numbers

Enthusiasm over the Mayor’s race hasn’t quite hit the heights of Dean Fever.

With Virginia as the main attraction, the Democracy for NYC Meet Up in Long Island City last night drew 9 attendees; 4 of them were either organizers or people providing technical assistance to Democracy for NYC, an offshoot of the Dean campaign.

We saw similarly low numbers at a mayoral forum in the Soundview section of the Bronx, where Giff and another Democrat stopped by. After we surveyed the rows of empty seats, one reporter noted, “There were 15 people, but five of them were pastors. What do you think they’re going to tell their congregations?”
