Poll: P.A. Race Wide Open for the Not-Green Spot

Quinnipiac is out with a poll this morning illustrating, among other things, just how few voters are aware of who is running for public advocate (other than Mark Green, maybe) and comptroller.
For public advocate, Mark Green leads the pack with 35 percent, just shy of the 40 percent he would need to avoid a run-off. Next is civil liberties attorney Norman Siegel, who has 14 percent. City Councilman Bill de Blasio, who has the backing of some major labor groups, has 10 percent, and City Councilman Eric Gioia has 5 percent.
But 34 percent of the voters surveyed said they’re undecided about whom to support, setting up a truly up-in-the-air race to get into a runoff with Green.
