The approval rating for New York City’s Democrat Mayor Eric Adams has just plunged to the lowest level that NYC has ever recorded, a new poll has found.
According to a new Quinnipiac University poll, Adams’s approval has plummeted to a stunning 28% among registered voters.
The rating is the lowest number that Quinnipiac has ever recorded for an NYC mayor since it began tracking the statistic in 1996.
The news comes as Adams continues to struggle with Democrat President Joe Biden’s Southern Border crisis as illegal aliens flood New York.
Voters disapprove of Adams’s handling of a number of issues, specifically immigration, crime, homelessness, and education.
Broken down by issue, voters responded with the following scores:
- On crime, 33% of New Yorkers approve of Adams’ work, while 60% disapprove
- On public schools, 31% approve and 53% disapprove
- On immigration, 26% approve and 66% disapprove
- On the city budget, 22% approve and 66% disapprove
However, the mayor’s worst issue is that of homelessness, where just 22% support his policies and a massive 72% disapprove.
The migrant crisis in New York has had a direct impact on homelessness.
Many American citizens, including veterans, are being turned away from shelters that are overflowing with illegal migrants.
Even nursing homes are being cleared out to make way for migrants, as Slay News reported.
Quinnipiac conducted its poll from November 30 to December 4, surveying 1,297 self-identified registered voters via landline and cellphones.
The poll reported a margin of error of 2.7%.
The FBI has launched a probe into his campaign finances over allegations of corruption.
Adams was also hit with a sexual assault accusation last month by a woman who claims to be his former colleague, as Slay News reported.
The mayor denied the allegation in a statement to the press before Thanksgiving.
“The mayor does not know who this person is,” a City Hall spokesperson said in a statement.
“If they ever met, he doesn’t recall it.
“But he would never do anything to physically harm another person and vigorously denies any such claim.”
Meanwhile, the migrant crisis has plagued Adams’ administration for more than a year.
The issue has been causing a feud not only with Texas Gov. Greg Abbott but also with Biden’s White House.
Abbott’s administration has transported tens of thousands of migrants from overwhelmed border towns to the “sanctuary city” of NYC.
The move has caused outrage among the city’s Democrat officials but brought nationwide attention to the crisis.
Adams has blasted Biden’s White House for not providing adequate federal assistance to contain the crisis, fracturing their relationship.
