Presidential wannabe Mayor Bill de Blasio has the dubious distinction of being the single most unpopular political figure in the entirety of New York State, a stunning new survey reveals.
The statewide Siena College poll shows a paltry 26 percent of voters have a favorable view of de Blasio, compared to a staggering 57 percent who don’t. Another 17 percent are undecided.
That’s a negative rating of 31 points in a deeply blue state.
By comparison, 35 percent of voters have a favorable view of Trump while 62 percent have an unfavorable view with the remaining three percent of respondents undecided.
President Trump has a negative rating of 27 percent, four points better than de Blasio.
Three in four Republicans like Trump, but most everyone else doesn’t.
“Trump continues to be viewed overwhelmingly negatively by his fellow New Yorkers – with the exception of Republicans, nearly three-quarters of whom continue to view him favorably and give him a positive job performance rating,” said Siena pollster Steven Greenberg.
“Perhaps Trump can take some solace in the fact that as unpopular as he is in his home state, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is even more unpopular,” added Greenberg.
De Blasio’s problem is that he’s even unpopular among Democrats. Only 38 percent of Democrats view him favorably and 49 percent unfavorably.
Even on his home turf in the Big Apple, 56 percent of voters have an unfavorable view of de Blasio while only 37 percent like him. His only positive rating was among black voters, with 50 percent giving him a thumbs up and 38 percent thumbs down.
Another Democratic candidate running for president from New York, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, was viewed favorably by 41 percent of voters and unfavorably by 36 percent with the rest undecided.
The Siena poll surveyed 810 registered voters from July 28 to August 1 and has 4.1 percent margin of error.
