NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A majority of New York City voters say they’re optimistic about the next four years with Bill de Blasio as mayor.
According to a Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday afternoon, 67 percent of voters have given the new mayor a vote of confidence, compared with just 21 percent who don’t feel optimistic.
“They are good for de Blasio. They are not unusual, he’s a new mayor. It’s a honeymoon, it’s a nice honeymoon welcome for de Blasio. Two-thirds of New Yorkers say yeah they’re optimistic about how he’s going to do. And we’ll see, that’s a nice beginning,” said Quinnipiac University Polling Director Maurice Carroll.
