A new poll shows Democratic Candidate for Mayor Bill de Blasio with an even bigger lead than before and enough support to avoid a runoff.

Candidates need to win at least 40 percent of the vote to avoid a matchup with the next-closest finisher.

The latest results from the Quinnipiac University poll, released Tuesday, have de Blasio with 43 percent of the vote, William Thompson with 20 percent and Christine Quinn with 18 percent.

Anthony Weiner comes in with 7 percent and John Liu with 4 percent.

Last week's Quinnipiac poll had de Blasio with 36 percent of the vote, Quinn with 21 percent and Thompson with 20 percent.

As for the Republicans, the latest poll finds former MTA head Joe Lhota with 48 percent, John Catsimatidis with 24 percent and George McDonald with 10 percent.

Tuesday's results came just hours before the Democratic candidates squared off in their final debate. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
