A new poll from Quinnipiac University reveals 47 percent of New York City voters say Mayor Bill de Blasio, a Democrat, does not deserve reelection.
That includes 88 percent of Republican voters in the Big Apple. Conversely, just 41 percent of voters — including a mere 8 percent of Republicans — say the mayor deserves a second term.
“The election calendar keeps getting shorter. So even though it’s two years away, Mayor Bill de Blasio has to be concerned that his re-election numbers are narrowly negative,” Quinnipiac University Poll Assistant Director Maurice Carroll said in a news release. “The mayor has yet to close the book on the tale of two cities, written on Election Day 2013. Black voters still approve of de Blasio by a lot; white voters don’t.”
