It looks like Bill de Blasio has really comfortable lead. A new poll shows him up 68 percent to 19 percent over Republican Joe Lhota among likely voters. If Lhota is going to have a chance of winning he is going to have to have three strong debate performances and de Blasio will have to flop as well. Of course if those two things don’t happen this thing is over.
You can bet de Blasio is going to try and link Lhota to the Republicans in Congress. Somehow I doubt John Boehner is very popular in the five boroughs.
