New York, NY - The front-runner in the fight to become New York’s next mayor isn’t even in the race.

A new poll from Quinnipiac University found that city voters put Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly ahead of other possible contenders in the 2013 campaign, although he has consistently said he isn’t running, hasn’t hired campaign staff and hasn’t raise a dime.

Nearly a quarter of voters - 23% - said he would be their pick, including 17% of Democrats.

“Police Commissioner Ray Kelly has never given the faintest hint that he’d like to move from Police Headquarters across the street to City Hall, but New York seems to like the idea of Kelly for mayor,” said Quinnipiac poll director Maurice Carroll.

If Kelly doesn’t run, voters give City Council Speaker Christine Quinn an early lead, with support from 23% of voters, followed by Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz with 15%, City Controller John Liu with 13%, former city controller Bill Thompson with 10%, Public Advocate Bill DeBlasio with 8% and Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer with 6%.

He's not a politician right now, but his son Greg Kelly works for FOX. I have no idea what his political affiliation is, though. NY Daily News is a liberal newspaper.

I notice that the name plate in front of Commissioner Kelly describes him as "Hon."

What makes a politician (especially a budding one) "Honorable"?

It was Ray Kelly who (without having all of the facts in) was quick to condemn the residents of Borough Park in 2006, following the civil disorders which occurred. Every Jewish politician, with the exception of the honorable Mayor condemned the NYCPD for its heavy handed tactics. Also, when Ray Kelly was Commissioner of U.S. Customs, his agents engaged in periodic, questionable searches of Black women coming back from the Caribbean, whereby they were subjected to disgusting intrusive personal searches, in the belief that they were smuggling drugs. In a number of cases, innocent tourists were chained and detained, in the hope that evidence was produced.
