In just the first month since Andrew Yang announced his candidacy for Mayor of New York City, we have built a massive and growing network of grassroots support across all five boroughs that has brought thousands of New Yorkers into the political process who share Andrew’s vision for a robust and equitable recovery to build New York City back how it deserves to be, not as it was.

None of the below even tries to account for RCV, which we believe will benefit Andrew greatly. Because we don’t fall into one traditional “lane”, we expect to take some voters from every lane as first, second or third choice.
