Hillary Takes Manhattan
Hillary for mayor?
t’s not clear who’s posting the signs to create a pro-Hillary buzz.Given the alternative, New Yorkers could hardly do worse...
But a January poll found Clinton would trounce Mayor Bill de Blasio in a hypothetical match up.
“…Hillary Clinton, running as an independent, tops incumbent Bill de Blasio, running as a Democrat, 49 – 30 percent,” a release for a Quinnipiac University Poll of city voters said.
“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 … The mayor does not deserve reelection, New York City voters say 49 – 42 percent.”
“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,” according to Quinnipiac.
