Moving from one major asshole (Trump) to another major asshole (DeBlasio), I just don’t get how the majority of people approve of the job that Big Bird is doing, I mean, can you name me at least 10 major accomplishments? Can you tell me if your quality of life has gotten better in this city as you walk through mounds of garbage? Has your subway ride been more pleasant to and from work sitting near the shit stained crazy homeless guy? I mean I don’t get it.
AND what I don’t get even more are these numbers:
white voters disapproved of de Blasio’s job performance by 55 to 39 percent, black voters approve by 80 to 12 percent, and Hispanics approve 70 to 27 percent
Why do Black and Hispanic voters tend to vote for people who seem to not look out for their best interest. Can any heavily Black or Hispanic community tell me realistically, that their community, their neighborhood has gotten so much better since Big Bird took office. Take Jamaica, since that is my hood and know it well. The garbage situation has gotten worse, the homeless situation way worse with dozens of homeless shelters plopped into the community in the last couple of years with homeless all over the downtown area reeking havoc and pretty much living in the Jamaica Center Station and E subway cars, quality of life certainly has not gotten better and crime still plagues these communities of color, so would some Black or Hispanic people inform me how you can possibly think this Mayor has done such a great job and be specific, because I don’t see it here in Jamaica. Talk to residents in Jamaica and despite all the development going on, many will say the same thing, that Jamaica’s quality of life has gotten worse in the past 5 years.
I mean majority white areas quality of life are much better than majority communities of color, like WAY BETTER, but even white people think Big Bird is doing a fucked up job and Blacks & Hispanics give him the thumbs up. Black and Hispanic communities have the highest rates of asthma and other health issues, some of it due to the poisonous waste facilities like Jamaica’s Royal Waste, that dumps pollutants into the ground, into the air and all those diesel fueled waste trucks that are killing resident’s lungs. Those same communities are over burdened with tons of homeless shelters, where many of the shelter folks are not even from the community. You all get the shit end of the stick, but yet you all bend over, spread your cheeks and say, “put it in deeper Master”.
I don’t get it, then I don’t get how this community keeps putting people like Comrie, Meeks, Cooks, Wills and other assorted shit heads back in office over and over again.
From AM NEW YORK:
De Blasio scores best job-approval rating of term, Quinnipiac poll finds
By 60 percent to 34 percent, voters approve of de Blasio’s performance. The approval rating represented a 10-point jump since a similar survey in late February, when de Blasio was under criminal investigation for his fundraising. De Blasio since has been cleared.
“Remember all those news stories about how Mayor Bill de Blasio was in political trouble? Well, he ain’t,” said Quinnipiac pollster Maurice Carroll.
The new poll showed that de Blasio, a Democrat elected in 2013, would defeat two front-runners for the Republican nomination for mayor: real estate executive Paul Massey and State Assemb. Nicole Malliotakis, of Staten Island.
De Blasio would beat Massey 63 to 21 percent and Malliotakis by 64 to 21 percent, Quinnipiac said. Four of five voters said they didn’t know enough about either Republican to form an opinion.
De Blasio spokesman Dan Levitan said de Blasio “expanded Pre-K for every 4 year old and will do the same for every 3 year old.” Without offering specifics, Levitan said in the statement that “crime is at record lows, jobs are at a record high, New York City is building affordable housing at a record pace, and rents were frozen for more than 2 million tenants. That is the mayor’s record, and it is one that New Yorkers are rallying around.”
Massey spokeswoman Mollie Fullington said in an email that Massey “is focused on talking to hardworking New Yorkers about his vision of innovation, inclusion and integrity for the city, and beating Bill de Blasio on Election Day.”
Aides to Malliotakis could not be reached immediately for comment.
The Quinnipiac poll also reflected long-standing racial and ethnic fissures in de Blasio’s support. While white voters disapproved of de Blasio’s job performance by 55 to 39 percent, black voters approve by 80 to 12 percent, and Hispanics approve 70 to 27 percent. Asians weren’t included in the breakdowns.
The poll also asked about President Donald Trump. Voters overall disapprove of his performance by 74 to 22 percent, but Republicans approved by a margin of 75 to 18 percent.
Also Wednesday, de Blasio went to Queens to celebrate two years without fatalities on Queens Boulevard, the thoroughfare once nicknamed “The Boulevard of Death” because of the high fatality rate. De Blasio credited his Vision Zero traffic safety plan, under which streets are redesigned and more motorists ticketed for violations.
De Blasio also defended his administration’s decision to provide 50,000 free-parking placards to the city’s public school personnel, arguing that doing so forestalled protracted legal challenges by labor unions representing the employees. The mayor promised “real sanctions” for anyone who abuses the permits.
The poll, conducted May 10 to 16, surveyed 1,019 New York City voters of both parties, via landline and cellphone. The margin of error was plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.
