BOSTON (Reuters) - Former Providence, Rhode Island, mayor Vincent "Buddy" Cianci, who served five years in prison after being convicted of racketeering, is leading in his bid to reclaim the job he held for 22 of the past 50 years, a poll released on Wednesday found.

The 73-year-old candidate, running as an independent, has a narrow lead in a three-way race, though many voters said they remain undecided with six weeks to go until Election Day, according to the Providence Journal/WPRI-12 poll.

Some 38 percent of 503 registered voters polled Sept. 14-17 said they planned to vote for Cianci, who also pleaded guilty to assaulting an acquaintance in separate case. Another 32 percent said they backed Democrat Jorge Elorza, while about 6 percent supported Republican Daniel Harrop.

But nearly 24 percent of voters said they had yet to make up their minds, according to the poll, which had a margin of error of 4.4 percentage points

The content available on a site dedicated to bringing folks to America should not be promoting racial discord, euro-supremacy, discrimination based on religion , exclusion of groups from immigration based on where they were born, disenfranchisement of voters rights based on how they might vote.
