New York, NY – A new poll shows Democrat Bill de Blasio (dih BLAH’-zee-oh) leading Republican rival Joe Lhota (LOH’-tuh) with 71 percent of likely voters in the race for New York City mayor.

Lhota has 21 percent in the Quinnipiac (KWIHN’-ih-pee-ak) University poll released Thursday. Independence Party candidate Adolfo Carrion has 2 percent.

Five percent of voters remain undecided. But 11 percent of respondents who named a candidate say there’s still a “good chance” they’ll change their mind by Nov. 5.

Among white voters, the survey shows de Blasio ahead of Lhota, 55 percent to 40 percent. Among black voters, he leads 90 percent to 6 percent, and 79 percent to 10 percent among Hispanics.

The poll of 1,198 likely voters was conducted Sept. 25 to Oct. 1.    The margin of error is plus or minus 2.8 percentage points.
