Ouch, Quinnipiac University Poll Says NYers Like Trump Better Than Mayor de Blasio

Poll says, New Yorkers from Harlem to Hollis may hate Donald Trump, but they like him better than Bill de Blasio as the Democratic mayor mulls a run for president, a new poll shows.

Some 28 percent of voters statewide have a favorable opinion of the Republican president, while just 24 percent feel the same way about the mayor, according to the Quinnipiac University poll results published Thursday reports Patch.

That’s despite the fact that nearly two thirds — or 64 percent — of New York voters say they would definitely not vote for Trump in 2020 if he’s the Republican candidate for president, the poll found.

“For New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who hasn’t yet decided whether he’ll run, his statewide net favorability rating is at an all-time low since taking office in 2014,” Quinnipiac polling analyst Mary Snow said in a news release.

De Blasio might take solace in the fact that he’s actively disliked by a smaller share of voters than the president. Some 49 percent of New Yorkers have an unfavorable opinion of the mayor while 67 percent say the same for Trump, the poll says. About a quarter say they haven’t heard enough about de Blasio to form an opinion of him.

But the poll held more bad news for de Blasio as he considers jumping in the 2020 presidential race. He had the worst net favorability rating among the 11 Democrats whom Quinnipiac polled voters about.

The mayor downplayed his poor showing on Thursday, saying he has never made decisions based on polls.

“The debate in this country has to be changed. The issues that are on the agenda have to be changed,” he said at an unrelated news conference. “So I’m going to do what I think is right.”

Quinnipiac surveyed 1,216 New York voters by telephone from March 13 to 18. The poll has a margin of error of 3.8 percentage points.
