Eric Adams has a 6-point lead in the Democratic primary for mayor, but a rising Maya Wiley has appeared as his chief rival after landing the support of lefty firebrand Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, according to a new survey released Wednesday.

Adams, the Brooklyn Borough President, got help from 23 percent of the 725 likely Democratic voters in the survey directed by PIX 11/Emerson College on Monday and Tuesday.

The support for Adams — who has made public security a cornerstone of his campaign — rose 3 percentage points from 20 percent in the prior Pix 11/Emerson College poll, released on May 25.

Though Wiley, the former chief counsel to Mayor Bill de Blasio, leapfrogged into second place with 17 percent of the vote, nearly duplicating the nine percent since she joined in the prior PIX 11/Emerson College poll published on May 25.

Her jump fell just days after she was signed on Saturday, June 5 by Ocasio-Cortez.

“AOC’s endorsement of Maya Wiley was a game-changer, as Wiley had not passed 9% in earlier polls, and now finds herself in second place at percent,” the poll makers said.

Wiley also Wednesday secured the support of Public Advocate Jumaane Williams.

Entrepreneur Andrew Yang collected the support of 15 percent of Democrats — having his third-place spot from the last poll.

The other big development was the decline in support for former city Sanitation Commissioner Kathryn Garcia. She dropped nine points, going from the top of the heap, with 21 percent support, to just 12 percent in this latest poll.

City Comptroller Scott Stringer — whose campaign has been swayed by sexual harassment allegations — rounded out the top five with the backing of 9 percent of Democratic voters.

Nonprofit executive Dianne Morales, whose campaign imploded amid staff upheaval, saw her approval drop from 7 percent of respondents to 2 percent.

Meanwhile, the big-spending campaigns of Shaun Dovan and Ray McGuire are also at the back of the crowd. Donovan, the former director of city and federal housing agencies, received 4 percent support and retired Citigroup executive McGuire 3 percent.

Another 12 percent of Democrats said they were uncertain. The primary day is June 22 and 10 days of early voting begins on Saturday.

Pix 11/Emerson College also carried a rare survey on the Republican primary for mayor. The results: 33 percent of Republicans approved Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa versus 27 percent for taxi-bodega supporter Fernando Mateo — with a large 40 percent saying they were still uncertain. The poll queried 250 Republicans and has a 6.2 percentage point margin of error.

The crime was cited as the top concern by about one-third of all of the 1,162 voters surveyed. Another 12 percent cited police reform as a pressing issue.
