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.
