A Pie Chart Bill Thompson Should Like

A new survey from WABC-TV has Bill Thompson trailing Mayor Bloomberg 51 percent to 43 percent, with 5 percent still undecided. It’s the closest any poll has shown the race so far. (A Quinnipiac poll from two weeks ago had Bloomberg leading 52-36.)

A spokesman for the mayor’s campaign says the polling company, SurveyUSA, hasn’t been very accurate in other citywide races and says the results are “out of whack with other public polls and the reality.” But for a guy getting outspent 16-to-1, Thompson has to feel pretty good about all the blue in that pie.
