A new poll shows that disgraced former governor Eliot Spitzer has a lead over Scott Stringer in the Democratic primary for New York City comptroller. That’s a sharp contrast to a recent survey that shows the race tied.

The poll was released Friday by Siena College and The New York Times. It shows that Spitzer, who resigned in a prostitution scandal, is the choice of 50 percent of likely Democratic voters.

Stringer, the Manhattan borough president, is at 35 percent.

The poll of 505 likely Democratic voters has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.

A Quinnipiac (KWIHN’-ih-pee-ak) University poll released Thursday shows Spitzer and Stringer tied at 46 percent. That survey of 602 likely Democratic voters also had a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.

The primary is Sept. 10.
