And the poll was conducted through Tuesday, so at least some of the participants knew about these new sexting revelations.
Former Rep. Anthony Weiner still holds a slight lead for the Democratic primary for New York City mayor, but challenger William Thompson may fare best if the race turns to a runoff, according to a new poll.
Weiner leads Democratic candidates with 26 percent support, according to Quinnipiac University survey. City Council Speaker Christine Quinn has 22 percent of voters support while Thompson, a former city comptroller, has 20 percent.
The poll was conducted from July 18 through Tuesday. Weiner held a press conference Tuesday evening, the end of the final day of the survey, in which he acknowledged that his illicit online relationships with women continued after he resigned from Congress.
