New Yorkers flunked Mayor de Blasio in a devastating poll released Wednesday — giving him his lowest approval rating yet amid revelations in The Post about a growing grade-fixing scandal in city schools.
The Quinnipiac University poll — conducted from last Thursday through Tuesday — found that only 38 percent of voters approved of his handling of the schools.
That’s down 11 points from this time last year and three points from a poll in May.
“His education numbers are not good . . . given what is going on these days with The Post. It hurts,” said pollster Maurice Carroll.
The numbers also showed that more people believed de Blasio did not deserve re-election than those who said he did, by 47-41 percent.
“The election calendar keeps getting shorter. So even though it’s two years away, Mayor de Blasio has to be concerned that his re-election numbers are narrowly negative,” Carroll said.
