With less than two weeks before the election, Bill de Blasio has surged into a significant lead in the city’s Democratic mayoral primary, according to a new poll.

A Quinnipiac University survey released on Wednesday found 36 percent of likely Democratic primary voters are backing de Blasio for mayor — putting the public advocate within close range of the 40 percent threshold he would need to avoid a run-off election. (Holly Bailey, Yahoo! News)
