NYC Mayor Results: De Blasio Has Decisive Lead in Exit Polls

Early exit polls are suggesting NYC Public Advocate Bill de Blasio is in the lead among the top three contenders for the Democratic nominee for mayor. Meanwhile, in the second most high-profile race, Scott Stringer is leading former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer for New York City comptroller.

Perhaps most surprisngly, de Blasio appears to be beating near-second candidate former Comptroller Bill Thompson in the black vote. City Council Speaker Christine Quinn appears to have seen her flame wane, coming in a distant third in the overall vote.

Keep in mind these are exit polls, not final results, and the vote may swing significantly.

Carolyn Ryan of the New York Times tweeted the following:

And finally, he's dominating in every racial group but black men and non-black, white, or Hispanic voters (kudos to John Liu for an extremely strong showing in that last category):
