Bklink: Markowitz on Top?

"A new poll on the 2009 mayoral race produced a startling result yesterday: Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz's enormous popularity in his home borough has propelled him to the top of the seasoned Democratic field. "It goes against conventional wisdom," said Marist College pollster Lee Miringoff. The Beep grabbed 18 percent, ahead of Rep. Anthony Weiner, with 13 percent; City Council Speaker Christine Quinn; at 11; city Comptroller Bill Thompson and Public Advocate Betsy Gotbaum, both at 9; and long-shot Queens City Councilman Tony Avella, at 4 percent." Miringoff concludes the race is "as wide open as you can get."--NYP

Ah, the Democratic Party's Markowitz strategy. Pray that the Republicans put up a candidate that's so lightweight they won't expose Marty's manifold shortcomings. Edgy, I like it. Because let's face it, they haven't come up with with any compelling candidates since 1985. oh wait...
