In the first measure of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s approval rating since late August, his popularity is holding steady citywide – but white voters increasingly disapprove of the mayor in a growing racial divide.
“His job approval rating two months in is positive and pretty good, but disturbingly ethnically divided,” Quinnipiac University Poll Assistant Director Maurice Carroll said this afternoon.
Voters overall citywide approve of Mr. de Blasio 49 percent, with 36 percent disapproving — moving little since the last poll in late August showed the mayor with a 50 percent approval rating.
A full 50 percent of white voters now disapprove of the mayor’s performance, up from 45 percent in August — with just 34 percent of whites approving of the job he’s doing. That’s in sharp contrast to the mayor’s favor with black voters: 71 percent of black voters support the job he’s doing, with only 14 percent disapproving. Among Hispanic voters, 56 percent approve and 27 percent disapprove.
Finally. this guy may be the biggest Blow to this greatest city in the world. He looks UP to sharpton where it should be the other way around. He says that his WIFE is co-mayor; Albeit, his wife like my wife is my equal at home at our mutual job. While he's the mayor, HE'S the mayor. He makes NYC look like a bunch of pussies.
It is interesting that so many of the rank and file of the various city unions who were encouraged to vote democrat, as those administrations are traditionally favored by unions, are now up in arms. Voters, do your research and cast an educated vote. Geez, most of your union leaders live outside the city and use your next contract as a carrot, not the overall effect of a crap mayor and his divisive policies.
The voters elected him. The voters deserve him.
This is the beginning of a giant downward slide for him. More and more issues will begin to swirl around him as the voters who supported him get disillusioned. In the past few weeks, the Noerdlinger nomination, Sharpton's taxes, the late arrival at the memorial service, on top of his historic self-righteous demeanor have begun to form an inescapable mass of reasons to dislike him and his administration.
Former city government union member here....i did NOT vote for this man. Voter turnout was so low, I'm not sure who actually voted for this guy. Maybe the big union members fell for his nonsense,but it was pretty clear early on that he was just about rhetoric. He campaigned like he was running for class president, not mayor. "want pizza everyday? Kool-aid in the water fountains? 3 hour recess? Vote for me!" he never said how he would pay for any of his initiatives. Think his support is waning now? Just wait until taxpayers get the bill for this nonsense.
You Queens Crappites elected him, you deserve what you got. A communist elitist beholding to the likes of Sharpton, and who unapologetically puts his worthless wife and her crimminal friends on the public payroll. Enjoy for 11 more years!
so all those who want to get money for doing nothing approve him while all those who work disapprove him. Same with Obama, same with all the Democrats who are now representing the illegals, the non-willing-to-work, the mediocre... That is the Democrat Party, the party of losers and losers will rule if that's the majority..Scary times
