Poll: Voters give NYC Mayor de Blasio mixed job approval ratings


NEW YORK — A new poll finds that New York City Mayor continues to have a mixed approval rating.

A Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday found that the first-term mayor had a 45 percent approval rating.

Forty-six percent of voters disapproved of the mayor's job performance.

His ratings largely held steady despite a rough summer that included bruising political fights with Gov. and Uber as well as worries about a rise in homelessness.

De Blasio, a Democrat, had a 44 percent approval rating in Quinnipiac's previous poll, which was conducted in August.

Forty-eight percent of voters surveyed said the mayor deserves a second term while 42 percent do not. De Blasio is up for re-election in 2017.

The poll had a margin of error of 2.9 percentage points.
