New York, NY - A new NY1/Baruch College City Poll reveals that approval numbers for New York City mayor Bill de Balsio are slipping—-a trend, insiders say, that has been slow but steady in recent months.

NY1.com (http://bit.ly/1isRBCv) reports that the poll shows that just 44% of New Yorkers now give the mayor a positive approval rating, down 14 points from February.

In what the poll calls the “SAT score”—-which measures how New Yorkers view de Blasio and his administration’s overall performance; including satisfaction with city services, whether or not those polled believe the city is on the right track, and de Blasio’s individual job performance—-the mayor scored 51%, down 13 points since February.

Michey Blum, a Baruch College pollster, said there’s good and bad news in the poll for de Balsio, in that while his numbers have slipped, they are still positive.

“There has definitely been a decline,” Blum added. “He hasn’t plummeted, but there has been sort of a steady, slight decline month after month particularly with white residents, white voters in the city. He’s still doing really well with all non-white groups.”
