Voters ready to dump de Blasio...but for whom?

From the Daily News:

Mayor de Blasio’s approval ratings remain in the toilet as multiple investigations swirl around his administration, with 51% of voters saying they disapprove of his job performance in a new poll.

Hizzoner’s 51%-42% rating in Monday’s Quinnipiac University poll remains largely unchanged since his worst-ever poll numbers in May, when 52% of voters approved and 41% disapproved.

Half of voters say de Blasio does not deserve reelection next year, compared to just 42% who say he does.

But de Blasio outpolls potential challengers tested in the survey — 45% say they’d pick him against City Controller Scott Stringer running as an independent, who gets 32%. That’s an improvement from May, when de Blasio was statistically tied with Stringer.

Former City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, polled by Quinnipiac for the first time, was favored by 33% for a general election matchup, compared to 43% for de Blasio.

As awful as he is someone still has to beat him unless he goes to prison. Then it is Letitia James!

Oh, the horror!

How about Anthony Wiener? After his wife Huma is in the White House as Hillary's Chief of Staff.

His job performance has been so abysmal anyone would do.
I like Ulrich for the job though... Avella will probably run too.

This is like watching a Greek tragedy.

But we must live this tragedy every day.

As Thomas Jefferson said, "you get the Government you deserve"...

The only one who can break him in a primary is Ruben Diaz Jr.

He takes the Latino vote away from the big dope and is smart enough

to get the white middle class vote from all boroughs.

Hakeem Jeffries will take all the black votes away from de Blasio.

Crapper says: "...but for whom?"

Between you and me, a nice continuous use of the objective case.

The beauty of the English language.

Where is Big Dope these days? Hiding I suspect from the press, but even that has to end at some point. He's picking up a paycheck, right?

Really, Quinn? People elected DiBlasio because they didn't want Quinn.

But if she promises to repeal Vision Zero, she's got my vote.

Tony effin Avella for mayor! Such a no-brainer!

It doesn't matter if only 50% approve of him. As long as all of them vote for him,he'll win cause the dissatified will stay home.

Now, what's this about Ruben Diaz, Jr., Anonymous?

It's not merely good and commendable enough to 'take the Latino vote' and be 'smart enough to land the white, middle class vote from all boroughs' as you say.

In case you haven't noticed, there is a crisis in honest, ethical leadership (that leads by example), and it's now reaching epidemic proportions (just look at how the DNC rigged the presidential election away from Bernie Sanders--a national disgrace!)!

Frankly, there is no need for a city council that no longer works for a living (if ever!), in the first place (and, now they receive MORE to deliver even LESS (MORE, as in 32% more of a pay bump that was, once again not publicly authorized since the LAST unauthorized pay raise that a lawless fraud like Christine Quinn robbed from the taxpayer for herself, and her city council pals)!

Because, when city government hacks are compensated with a level of publicly unauthorized pay that even private industry EXECUTIVES don't earn, then We the People continue to pay a soul-crushing price of taxation without representation, not to mention how distrust, disapproval, contempt and anger instantly rise for these empowered idiots, as the rank and file get to eat the income gap (by way of higher taxes), for whom their OWN salaries and stations in life continue to languish---in perpetuity!

'Where is Big Dope these days?'

The Big Dope, Mayor Big Slow can be seen everyday in his favorite gym, the Y in Brooklyn and some old dry cleaner, which apparently is the only small business allowed to survive because it's serves this goddamn loser. Since he cannot go to the Y on lexington and 92 or even a dry cleaner a few blocks north of it and has to take his police detail across the borough, because he thinks he's liberal royalty.

I wouldn't worry about a replacement because the gates will open up once he's indicted shortly after Bratton leaves in September. Unfortunately, it will mean the useless Letitia James will be mayor as predicted.

This is the result of less than a quarter of the city's voters show up at the polls.

Which is why Carlos Danger will be the next mayor. Got to keep the Clinton Global Establishment/Initiative going.

Tony Avella?
LMAO! Not with his many crooked enemies.
If he did get to be mayor, the shady REBNY connected city council will politically castrate him.
They gave him grief when he was a councilman.
Only crooks can run NYC. that is REBNY's credo.
It's their kind of crooks that support their real estate agenda.

Get Rid of the city council and bring back the board of estimate

Anonymous said...

Whoever fills Duh Blasio's shoes will win his mayoral seat through the NYC real estate development backers.
So, does it really matter who gets in? Money talks and bullshit walks.
Avella does not have a dime to beat a REBNY candidate. Too bad. He is the only hope.

Never thought I would say this, but I'd vote for Weiner in this instance. All the people already sucking on city gov't teats would NOT get my vote.
