In the latest Quinnipiac University poll, 39 percent of likely Democratic primary voters supported Mr. de Blasio, the public advocate, followed by 25 percent forWilliam C. Thompson Jr., a former city comptroller, and 18 percent forChristine C. Quinn, the City Council speaker. The remaining candidates polled in the single digits, and 8 percent of likely voters remained undecided. Among respondents who currently back a candidate, 18 percent said there was a good chance they would change their mind.
