Two New York Democrats who have expressed presidential ambitions face underwater approval ratings in their home state, according to a new poll.
In a Quinnipiac University Poll survey released Thursday, Sen. Kirsten GillibrandKirsten GillibrandWarren, Democrats urge Trump to back down from veto threat over changing Confederate-named bases Warren, Pressley introduce bill to make it a crime for police officers to deny medical care to people in custody Senate Dems press DOJ over coronavirus safety precautions in juvenile detention centers MORE (D-N.Y.) was supported by just 29 percent of registered voters in her state. Her unfavorable rating is slightly higher: 35 percent of New Yorkers surveyed said they disapproved of the job being done by their state’s junior senator.
As for New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D), who has not announced a bid but has been hinting about a 2020 campaign for weeks, just 24 percent of New Yorkers polled approved of the job he has done as mayor. 49 percent of voters surveyed said they disapproved of the mayor’s performance.
The numbers are some of the lowest popularity ratings either Democrat has ever faced, even as they consider broadening their exposure to the larger electorate.

“But New Yorkers aren’t cutting any slack to their own elected officials looking to replace him. As Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand makes her presidential bid official, her net favorability score is her worst ever,” Snow continued. “For New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who hasn’t yet decided whether he’ll run, his statewide net favorability rating is at an all-time low since taking office in 2014.”
