According to a poll released by the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute Monday afternoon, Anthony Weiner dropped to fourth place among those running for mayor of New York City following his latest sex scandal.

Just 16 percent of likely Democratic primary voters now say they support Weiner–a fall from 26 percent less than a week ago. In the lead is City Council Speaker Christine Quinn at 27 percent, Public Advocate Bill de Blasio at 21 percent and former Comptroller William Thompson at 20 percent. The former Congressman is still, however, ahead of New York City Comptroller John Liue who has seix percent of voters and Sal Albanese who is pulling in just two percent.

“With six weeks to go, anything can happen, but it looks like former Congressman Anthony Weiner may have sexted himself right out of the race for New York City mayor,” said Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

Weiner, who once led the race, saw a significant drop in supporters after TheDirty.com revealed that the politician continued to engage in sexual online conversations with women even after he resigned from Congress due to a prior sexting scandal.
