Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams is leading the NYC Mayoral race, the latest PIX11 poll found.

Adams got the support of 23% of the respondents in the poll, conducted June 7-8. He’s never dipped below 18% in these polls, and he was most recently at 20% before this increase.

Former counsel to current Mayor DeBlasio, Maya Wiley, surged into second place with an 8% climb from the most recent poll, following an AOC endorsement.

Andrew Yang brought in 15%, and former commissioner for the NYC Sanitation Dept, Kathryn Garcia, dropped from 21% to 12%.

  1. How is 23% a “commanding lead”? You need 50.1% to get elected. What will happen with the other 77% of the votes? Once they go to their second and third choices, there’s no way to predict what share of them he will get.
