Last week a Quinnipiac poll showed Bill de Blasio leading Joe Lhota by an absurd 50 points in the mayoral race. This week, a WSJ / NBC 4 / Marist poll found that lead had shrunk to a still-absurd 44 points. At this rate, Lhota only needs about seven and a half more weeks to catch up to de Blasio in the polls. Don't forget to vote Nov. 5!
