New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has tried everything to jump start his presidential campaign which has wallowed a 0 in national campaigns. From promising to “tax the hell out of the wealthy” to free education to free health care, de Blasio has tried everything. One of this central themes has been to herald his own performance as the mayor of New York. However, a new Siena College poll shows that de Blasio is even less popular in New York city with 58 percent of New Yorkers holding an unfavorable view of him. Even more telling is the fact that his own city shows the same 0 percent support that he has nationwide for president. Even Billy Crystal mocked de Blasio in declaring “You are going nowhere. Come back and clean up this city.
Only 33 percent of New Yorkers hold a favorable view of their mayor. Yet, de Blasio continues to run without any indication that any measurable level of support exists even in his own city.
The same poll shows other politicians who continue to show no support but still continue to campaign. The zero percenters among New York voters are Booker, O’Rourke, and Castro. Klobuchar is at only 1 percent with Gabbard and Yang.
What is striking about de Blasio is that he appears to have become less popular over time. The more exposure have to him, the less they appear to like him.
