Bill de Blasio and Andrew Cuomo have something in common: Their approval ratings have hit personal lows.
Only 44% of New Yorkers approve of the way Mr. de Blasio is handling his job, down from 49% in January, according to a Quinnipiac poll released Tuesday. Forty percent say they disapprove of Mr. de Blasio's job performance.
The poll's respondents are divided over Mr. de Blasio's foray into national politics: 46% said they thought it was "distracting," while 42% said it wasn't. Twelve percent had no opinion.
Quinnipiac University surveyed 969 New York City voters from May 6 through May 11, with a margin of error of 3.2 percentage points.
The seemingly endless stream of corruption scandals in Albany have taken their toll on Mr. Cuomo's approval rating, even though they have all involved the legislature, not the governor. According to a Wall Street Journal/Marist poll released Tuesday, his job performance rating has slipped to 37%, the lowest point since he was first elected in 2011.
