Nine weeks away from the decisive Democratic New York City mayoral primary, and voters are shrugging their shoulders on who to vote for, according to a Siena College/AARP poll released Monday.

More than a quarter of registered Democrats polled in the survey (26%) said they either did not know who would they would support, or refused to declare allegiance to a candidate, as their first pick in the June 22 ranked-choice primary.

That’s two points more than the support received for entrepreneur Andrew Yang, who leads the current slate of Democrats on the ballot, getting 24% of the voters’ support for first choice. Yang stands 11 points ahead of his two closest rivals: Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and City Comptroller Scott Stringer, both of whom polled at 13% each.
