Anothony Weiner is finally ahead of the pack in a poll which finds him one of New York’s most embarrassing candidates. Weiner may be proving impotent in other polls, but in this he rises to the top in his unfavorability rating.

More than two-thirds of New Yorkers find Anthony Weiner and Eliot Spitzer’s campaigns “embarrassing” and Weiner’s unfavorable rating has set a record, a new poll found on Monday.

According to the Siena College poll, 68 percent of New York voters, including 62 percent of those in New York City, say the national attention placed on Weiner and Spitzer’s campaigns is embarrassing.

Spitzer fares better than Weiner, boasting a 59 percent unfavorable rating, versus Weiner’s 80 percent unfavorable rating among New Yorkers.

“Weiner has set a new all-time Siena College Poll record with 80 percent of voters viewing him unfavorably — including three-quarters of Democrats and New York City voters — compared to only 11 percent who have a favorable view of America’s most infamous tweeter,” Siena College pollster Steven Greenberg said in a statement.

Meanwhile, Weiner has his first campaign ad out in which he promises to stick up for the little guy and not stiff working people in favor of big interests:

    I guess it depends on what culture you live in on how these kinds of problems are dealt with. Many years ago the KGB videotaped Indonesian President Achmed Sukarno have sex with Russian women. When the Soviets confronted him with the tapes(thinking blackmail)he surprised them by asking for more copies of the tapes so he could show them publicly back home. I guess the KGB’s inability to penetrate showed their impotence in this case.

    Groan. Slamfu out-quiping Willwright will take some effort. 🙂 Geez, I even had to censor my original comment!

    When a politician reaches this level of ridicule, he might as well give up.
