NBC weatherman Al Roker might be right when he tweeted that New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio was a one-term mayor. The NY Daily News reports that his approval rating has taken a nosedive and a racial divide has developed in the Big Apple. That’s according to a new Quinnipiac University poll.
The Quinnipiac University poll, which was released Tuesday, found that 45% of voters approve of the job de Blasio’s doing and 34% disapprove, the NY Daily News reports. That’s compared to a 53% approval and 13% disapproval in a Jan. 16 Quinnipiac University poll.
The latest poll also found a racial divide, with 39% of white voters approving of de Blasio’s performance, while 45% disapprove. Black voters give him a 60% approval rating, with only 22% disapproving.
