New Yorkers overwhelmingly disapprove of the way Mayor de Blasio is handling homelessness and crime — and think the quality of life in New York City has taken a turn for the worse, according to a poll released Friday.
The new Quinnipiac poll found that 61% of voters disapprove of the way de Blasio is handling poverty and homelessness, which he promised to improve during the 2013 City Hall race.
Twenty-eight percent of those surveyed said they thought the mayor was doing a good job on those issues.
And more than half — 53% — think the city's quality of life is getting worse, not better, the poll found. That's compared to just 14% who think it's getting better.
Fifty-nine percent of voters think the mayor isn't doing a good job stopping crime, compared to 35% who think he's doing a good job, the poll found.
