The first poll taken since Eliot Spitzer leaped into the New York City comptroller's race shows the ex-governor gaining a quick advantage over fellow Democrat Scott Stringer.

The Wall Street Journal-NBC 4 New York-Marist poll shows registered Democrats favoring Spitzer over Stringer by 42 percent to 33 percent. That includes voters who are undecided but leaning toward a candidate.

Spitzer resigned amid a prostitution scandal in 2008. Stringer is Manhattan's borough president.
