From the Times Ledger:
A poll released last week by Marist College showed Gioia in for a tough fight after he received only 4 percent in a survey of likely Democratic voters — the lowest of the four Democrats in the race — despite his leading the field in fund−raising.
Green was followed by civil rights attorney Norman Siegel, who also ran for public advocate four years ago, at 15 percent; City Councilman Bill de Blasio (D−Brooklyn) at 9 percent; and Gioia at 4 percent.
Being a native son did not help Gioia in Queens, where he was the choice of 6 percent of respondents, according to the poll. Green received 43 percent in the borough and both de Blasio and Siegel received 10 percent.
