A new poll shows that most New Yorkers watching Anthony Weiner and Eliot Spitzer in their political races want to forget about them.
The Siena Research Institute poll was released Monday morning.
68 percent of voters say they're embarrassed by the national attention being given to the men's sex scandals.
16 percent say the attention is "no big deal."
Just eight percent find it entertaining.
Anthony Weiner is running for New York City mayor after a sexting scandal drove him out congress.
Spitzer is seeking a comeback as New York City Comptroller.
He resigned as governor in 2008 amid a prostitution scandal.
