Eric Adams leads NYC mayoral candidates in recent poll


According to a new poll conducted by the NY1/Ipsos poll, whose results were released on Monday, Eric Adams is ahead of the other candidates and appears to be the best possible winner for the primaries to be held on Tuesday. Andrew Yang is in the second spot while the third position is shared by Kathryn Garcia and Maya Wiley.


The voters were asked to choose the best candidate on issues of crime and safety and the former NYPD Captain Adams had a clear lead over the others. However, on other significant issues he ranks almost the same with Yang and other candidates.


The four major Democratic candidates who will face off each other are


  1. Eric Adams — Former NYPD Captain and Brooklyn Borough President
  2. Andrew Yang — American businessman
  3. Kathryn Garcia — former Sanitation Commissioner
  4. Maya Wiley — former City Hall lawyer


The candidates who polled lesser numbers include


  • Scott Stringer — Comptroller
  • Michael Bloomberg — Former Mayor
  • Shaun Donovan — An official who served in the Barack Obama administration
  • Ray McGuire — former Citigroup executive
  • Dianne Morales — Nonprofit executive


If the Democrat votes rank crime and security as their main issue, then Adams will lead in the primaries tomorrow. However, if other issues gain significance, then it is bound to be a close contest, and anybody could topple the other. Some of the other major issues on the minds of the voters include


  • homelessness
  • combating COVID-19
  • reopening the economy
  • reopening schools


Although four candidates have polled highly, there is a difference in name recognition as well; with Stringer being identified more easily than Garcia.


According to name recognition, the top candidate were


  • Andrew Yang — 86 percent
  • Eric Adams — 83 percent
  • Scott Stringer — 80 percent
  • Kathryn Garcia — 67 percent


Mayor Bill De Blasio is term limited and can no longer run the race. The choice is quite wide, and the issues are quite diverse. Tomorrow will be an important day for all the mayoral hopefuls as no one can say which issue will be topmost on New Yorkers minds as they chose a Democratic primary candidate.
