Weiner’s Last-Minute Poll

Four days before Anthony Weiner announced publicly that he was withdrawing from the mayor’s race, he paid $44,600 for a poll.

What did it say?

When I asked Weiner’s people, they declined to get into specifics, but they provided the following comment from the campaign pollster, Joel Benenson:

“The research showed Anthony was popular and would have given Michael Bloomberg fits. But it also made clear that a race would require Anthony drop his DC work and focus full time on his campaign,” said Benenson, in a statement.
