NEW YORK (Reuters) - Anthony Weiner plummeted to fourth place in the New York City mayor's race, a week after fresh revelations surfaced of his sexually charged Internet activity, according to a poll released on Monday.
The Quinnipiac University poll showed the former congressman, who once held first place in the mayoral race, with just 16 percent of the likely Democratic primary voters, behind City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, who leads with 27 percent, Public Advocate Bill de Blasio, who has 21 percent and former Comptroller William Thompson, who has 20 percent, the poll said.
