More unscientific exit poll data: Bill de Blasio is the most well-liked mayoral candidate among Democratic primary voters, followed by Bill Thompson, and both men garnered favorability ratings in the sixties. However, a "slim majority" of voters said they have an unfavorable opinion of Christine Quinn, which is never a great recipe for electoral success.
