Bloomberg Looking Good, Fields Gaining

The NYC Mayoral race has been a lot more active than the one in Albany so far. Lots of candidates and controversy. And so far its been good for Bloomberg. However, C. Virginia Fields has been gaining ground in the polls. Why? From the Times Union:

"She is in a field where people are tired of the Democrats that they had known" Doug Muzzio, professor of Public Affairs at Baruch College

In a world where a Clinton is the leading candidate for President and a 3 term incumbent is favored to win re-election as Mayor of Albany, I can understand that sentiment.
