Following new sexting revelations, former Congressmember and mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner has lost support among Democratic voters.

Mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner has lost support among voters after it was revealed he continued sexting following his resignation from Congress, a NBC 4 New York/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll released today found.

In a June poll, 25 percent of registered Democrats said they would vote for Weiner and 20 percent said they would chose City Council Speaker Christine Quinn. The new poll, conducted Wednesday, showed Quinn leading with 25 percent, and 16 percent of voters supporting Weiner.

In a runoff situation, Weiner is virtually tied with Public Advocate Bill de Blasio and former Comptroller Bill Thompson, who both are at 14 percent, according to the new poll results.

The poll also found his favorability rating has dropped from 52 to 30 percent since last month, and 47 percent of registered Democrats believe Weiner doesn’t deserve another chance, down from 59 percent in June.
