From Bloomberg Watch:
The Thompson campaign forwarded over results from a SurveyUSA election poll sponsored by WABC-TV New York, which shows the Democratic mayoral challenger trailing Bloomberg by only eight percentage points. This shows much promise for Thompson since Bloomberg has spent a whopping $65 million in his run for a third term, compared to the $4 million Thompson has spent at this point.
"In an election for mayor of New York City 10/06/09, one month until votes are counted, incumbent Republican Mike Bloomberg faces strong opposition from Democrat Bill Thompson, according to an exclusive WABC-TV poll conducted by SurveyUSA. Today: it’s Bloomberg 51%, Thompson 43%. Bloomberg has outspent Thompson 16:1."
