Unmentioned in media reports about former Bronx BP Adolfo Carrion’s low Q-rating: He loses his home borough to an unnamed Democrat, 19%-62%. Ouch!
Carrion lags in Quinnipiac poll. Former Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion has a lot of work to do if he wants to be elected the next mayor of New York. In a new Quinnipiac poll released last week, only 11 percent of voters said they would vote for Carrion compared to 62 percent who would vote for the opposing Democratic candidate. Though he may be the only Hispanic in the race, the poll reported that only 12 percent of Hispanic voters would choose him.
Q Poll: Carrion, Lhota Would Be Turkeys. Another potential Republican candidate, former Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion, would not fare much better than Lhota, the poll found: Carrion would lose 62% to 11% if he ran on the Republican ticket. “Politics buffs are talking about MTA Chair Joseph Lhota and former Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion as possible Republican contenders for the West Wing at City Hall, but the public hasn’t caught up with the pundits,” Quinnipiac University Polling Institute Director Maurice Carroll said.
