Weiner resigned his congressional seat in 2011 after a sexting scandal – dubbed "Weinergate" – revealed he was sending explicit messages to women while he was married.

A second scandal erupted during Weiner's 2013 run for New York City mayor. Under the alias "Carlos Danger," Weiner continued to send sexts to at least three other women. Despite calls for him to drop out, Weiner continues his campaign.

A breakdown of SeekingArrangement.com's stats reveals a 35 percent approval rate (1,833 approve out of 5,287 surveyed) for women 27-34 and 21 percent approval (327 approve out of 1,094 surveyed) from women 35 and older.
