Although he's still trailing in the polls, Democratic mayoral candidate and City Comptroller William Thompson appears to be making some headway against Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
In the latest Quinnipiac University survey, Bloomberg leads the City Thompson by 47 to 37 percent, compared to 54 to 32 percent in June.

The survey shows Thompson has made big gains among black voters and Democrats overall. He easily beats Queens Councilman Tony Avella, his closest competitor for the Democratic nomination.
A large majority of New Yorkers still give Bloomberg high favorability and approval ratings.
The survey was of nearly 1,300 registered voters, with a margin of error of plus or minus 2.7 percentage points.
When questions with just Democrats were asked, the margin of error was plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
