NEW YORK - A new amNewYork-News 12 poll shows Bill de Blasio is maintaining a huge lead over rival Joe Lhota in the race for New York City mayor.

The latest numbers give the Democratic nominee 64 percent of likely voter support, compared to just 23 percent on the Republican side.

When broken down by borough, de Blasio has an even bigger lead in Brooklyn with 70 percent, a 50-point margin over Lhota.

The poll also broke down the numbers by issues. De Blasio has a sizeable lead in most categories, including the economy and jobs, affordable housing and cost of living, but Lhota jumps slightly ahead in the category of taxes and city fees.

The candidates will meet for a third and final debate next Tuesday. Voters will then head to the polls on Nov. 5.
