Support For Anthony Weiner Dropping
A new poll is finding diminished support for New York City mayor candidate Anthony Weiner since the latest revelations about his sexting activity.
The poll — by NBC 4 New York, the Wall Street Journal and Marist — finds Democratic rival Christine Quinn leading Weiner, 25 percent to 16 percent. Weiner had earlier been near the top of most polls.
Weiner now says he traded racy messages with as many as three women after resigning from Congress in 2011 for similar conduct.
The married Democrat also said Thursday that he’s still “working with people” to get help dealing with his penchant for X-rated online flirting. But he disputes any suggestion that it’s an addiction.
