NEW YORK (AP) — A new poll shows that less than half of New York City voters approve of Mayor Bill de Blasio's performance during his first two months in office.
The Marist College/The Wall Street Journal/WNBC poll shows that 39 percent of voters believe de Blasio's performance has been good or excellent.
Thirty-seven percent rated his performance as fair while another 20 percent say he is doing poorly.
The poll is the first of de Blasio's mayoralty. It surveyed 586 registered voters and has a margin of error of 4 percentage points.
De Blasio, a Democrat, took office January 1 after winning 73 percent of the vote.
Voters have a more positive view of de Blasio than his performance. Fifty-nine percent have favorable view of him while 33 percent have an unfavorable view.
