Sample and Methodology detail

New York City voters are divided on whether Mayor Bill de Blasio should challenge Trump administration polices, as 46 percent say the mayor should try to get along with President-elect Donald Trump, while 45 percent say the mayor should be a national leader against Trump policies, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.

Voters say 67 - 21 percent that Gov. Andrew Cuomo would be more effective than Mayor de Blasio "making sure New York City interests are best represented, with Republicans in control of Congress and the White House," the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll finds.

Homelessness is a "very serious" problem in New York City, 72 percent of voters say, as 25 percent say it's "somewhat serious." They are seeing more homeless people on the streets and in parks and subways than a few years ago, 53 percent of voters say, and 48 percent say they are encountering more homeless people asking for money.

New York City voters disapprove 59 - 31 percent of the way de Blasio is handling poverty and homelessness, but approve 54 - 38 of how he is handling another key issue - crime.

He gets mixed grades on handling other issues:
  • Negative 37 - 45 percent for handling public schools;
  • 47 - 40 percent approval for handling relations between blacks and whites;
  • Negative 42 - 50 percent for handling relations between police and the community;
  • Negative 36 - 41 percent for handling the city budget;
  • Negative 30 - 50 percent for handling political corruption.
"New Yorkers hand Mayor Bill de Blasio a split decision on two key issues in the city: They approve of the way he is handling crime and disapprove of the way he is handling homelessness," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

"Homelessness is hitting record numbers in New York City and three out of four voters say it's a 'very serious' problem," Malloy added.

Moving or Staying

Even if they could move, 67 percent of New York City voters say they would rather remain in the city, while 31 percent say they would move. The itch to move by borough is:
  • Bronx - 46 percent would move and 53 percent would stay;
  • Brooklyn - 25 percent would move and 73 percent would stay;
  • Manhattan - 21 percent would move and 79 percent would stay;
  • Queens - 34 percent would move and 65 percent would stay;
  • Staten Island - 53 percent would move and 46 percent would stay.
New York City voters approve 50 - 17 percent of the job Police Commissioner James O'Neill is doing, with approval among black, white and Hispanic voters.

Voters approve 67 - 25 percent of the way New York City police in general are doing their job. Approval is 79 - 15 percent among white voters, 52 - 37 percent among black voters and 73 - 24 percent among Hispanic voters.

A total of 86 percent of New York City voters say crime is a "very serious" or "somewhat serious" problem. A total of 71 percent of voters say police brutality is a "very serious" or "somewhat serious" problem. A total of 61 percent of voters say police corruption is a "very serious" or "somewhat serious" problem.

By comparison, a total of 82 percent of New York City voters say political corruption is a "very serious" or "somewhat serious" problem.

Mayor de Blasio does favors for developers who make political contributions to campaigns in which he is involved, voters say 52 - 28 percent.
