New Yorkers Say Mayor De Blasio Shouldn't Run For President

A new Quinnipiac University poll finds New Yorkers think Mayor Bill de Blasio should stay out of the race for president.

According to the survey, 76 percent say he shouldn’t run, while only 18 percent say he should. Every party, gender, race, borough and age group agrees that de Blasio shouldn’t enter the race.

"Mayor Bill de Blasio's flirtation with a 2020 White House bid is prompting a rare moment of unity among New Yorkers. Three-quarters of them say, 'Mr. Mayor: Don't do it,'" Quinnipiac polling analyst Mary Snow said.

The poll found that 42 percent of New Yorkers believe it would be bad for the city if he were to run.

Mayor de Blasio’s approval rating is 42 percent citywide, with 44 percent disapproving of his job performance. That’s compared to a 43 to 40 percent approval rating he had in December.

The same poll found Governor Cuomo’s approval rating to be 51 percent, while 71 percent disapprove of the job that President Donald Trump is doing.
