Additional Trend Information
Sample and Methodology detail

In a very hypothetical race for New York City Mayor, Hillary Clinton, running as an independent, tops incumbent Bill de Blasio, running as a Democrat, 49 - 30 percent, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.

Mayor de Blasio gets a divided 45 - 46 percent job approval rating, little changed from a 47 - 47 percent approval rating in a November 16 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University. The mayor does not deserve reelection, New York City voters say 49 - 42 percent.

While he tops possible challengers in a hypothetical Democratic primary, de Blasio falls short of the 40 percent needed to avoid a primary run-off. And former City Council Speaker Christine Quinn or City Comptroller Scott Stringer would be serious challengers running as independent candidates in a general election face-off.

Results for a hypothetical Democratic primary show:
  • De Blasio - 35 percent;
  • Former City Council Speaker Christine Quinn - 11 percent;
  • City Comptroller Scott Stringer - 9 percent;
  • U.S. Rep. Hakeem Jeffries - 8 percent;
  • Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. - 5 percent;
  • State Sen. Tony Avella - 1 percent.
"New Yorkers aren't in love with Mayor Bill de Blasio, but they seem to like him better than other possible choices - except Hillary Clinton, who probably is an impossible choice," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

"None of the possible contenders has made any real noise or spent any money, so this race still could get interesting."

In the Clinton - de Blasio matchup, Clinton leads 61 - 29 percent among Democrats and 45 - 31 percent among independent voters. Republicans back de Blasio 28 - 18 percent. She leads among men and women and black, white and Hispanic voters. She also leads in every borough except Staten Island, which goes to de Blasio 28 - 22 percent.

De Blasio, running as a Democrat, has a 44 - 34 percent lead in a hypothetical race against Christine Quinn, running as an independent. De Blasio wins similar matchups against other possible challengers running as independent candidates:
  • 43 - 32 percent over Stringer;
  • 43 - 28 percent over Diaz;
  • 41 - 27 percent over Jeffries;
  • 48 - 23 percent over Avella.
New York City voters give de Blasio a divided 47 - 45 percent favorability rating. Quinn gets a 37 - 23 percent favorability, with 39 percent who don't know enough about her to form an opinion. The other contenders are largely unknown as the percentage of voters who don't know enough about them to form an opinion ranges from 58 percent to 84 percent.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has the highest job approval rating of any top leader, as New York City voters approve 68 - 26 percent of the job he is doing as governor. Other job approval ratings are:
  • 52 - 17 percent for Stringer;
  • 44 - 17 percent for Public Advocate Letitia James;
  • 36 - 19 percent for City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito;
  • 35 - 30 percent for Schools Chancellor Carmen Farina.
Mayor de Blasio is honest and trustworthy, voters say 50 - 37 percent and he understands their problems, voters say 53 - 42 percent. But he does not have strong leadership qualities, voters say 51 - 45 percent.

From January 11 - 17, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,138 New York City voters with a margin of error of +/- 2.9 percentage points. The survey includes 738 Democrats with a margin of error of +/- 3.6 percentage points. Live interviewers call landlines and cell phones.

The Quinnipiac University Poll, directed by Douglas Schwartz, Ph.D., conducts public opinion surveys in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Florida, Ohio, Virginia, Iowa, Colorado, North Carolina, Georgia and the nation as a public service and for research.
