Sandra Cunningham (D-31) with 13.6%, downtown Councilman Steve Fulop 12.9%, and Assemblyman Sean Connors 4.2%.
Forty-five point four percent of those polled said they were undecided on a candidate.

Cunningham has a 60.7% favorable rating, Fulop 35%, and Connors 29.2%.
Asked about Healy’s job performance, 43.1% of respondents said “good,” and 49% said “not good.”
