De Blasio at 40.02% With 95% Precincts Reporting

I have an entire post ready to go talking about a Big Bill, Little Bill runoff. Thompson is about 26%, just a point or two off my prediction earlier in the day. I am surprised deB has held up at around 40%. I was expecting some blow-back to drive him down to about 36%.

What a difference a few votes will make. My Sal Albanese vote may be the difference. My Rockaway loyalty drove me there, as Sal came often and deB never did.

I have mixed feelings about a runoff. As a political junkie, how much fun would that run-off be?

If Big Bill holds on, wither the UFT? If I were the leadership I would call an immediate meeting to endorse him. And they probably will -- will Randi take back her attacks on him?

But it is really going to be a close call.

Thompson at the podium now as they shout "3 more weeks." I see Randi. Where's Mulgrew?

Funny, he just said that on the 3rd Bloomberg term, some people said nothing can be done about it. Isn't he talking about the UFT?

  1. If I was a NYC resident, I would have voted for Albanese too..I am glad I am not the one of the few supporters of Albanese.
