From the Times Ledger:
Bloomberg landed 154,127 votes in Queens, according to unofficial results from the city Board of Elections, compared to Thompson’s 120,754. That difference of about 34,000 votes is far less than the 90,000 votes Bloomberg carried Queens by in the 2005 general election.
“A lot of Queens voters were disaffected and turned off,” Queens Civic Congress President Corey Bearak said of this year’s mayoral campaign. “There was not enough attention given to issues like development, taxes and education.”
