Weiner Trailing front-running Democrat by 5 points in New York City mayor race

(CNN) – Former Rep. Anthony Weiner, who resigned in disgrace after sending lewd photos via Twitter, got some good news Tuesday with a new poll indicating he's gaining ground in the New York City mayoral race.

Asked by CNN if he's getting a second chance, Weiner argued voters aren't focused on his scandal.

"Look. I have said from the moment I got into this race that I honor the idea that people are going to have questions about me, but for the most part the questions people have been asking have been the things that affect their families."
