New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's job approval rating is plummeting, although he still tops his little-known Republican challenger, a new Quinnipiac University poll released Monday reveals.

According to the survey:

  • De Blasio now stands at 50-42 percent, down from 60-34 percent in May.
  • New York State Assembly member Nicole Malliotakis, scores 57-22 percent
  • With ex-cop Bo Dietl running as an independent, de Blasio gets 52 percent, Malliotakis takes 15 percent and Dietl scores 11 percent.
  • New York City voters also are split 46-46 percent on whether de Blasio deserves re-election, a big swing from May when voters said 57-35 percent that he did.
     

"Leave out the one big question — the re-election matchup — and this is a pretty bad poll for Mayor Bill de Blasio," said Mickey Carroll, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University poll.

"Does the mayor deserve re-election? Voters are split right down the middle. Is he doing a good job as mayor? 'Yes,' says 50 percent of voters. On the standard traits — leadership, empathy and honesty — all the numbers are down.

"But on the one question that matters in this election year — de Blasio vs. Assembly member Nicole Malliotakis — Hizzoner is a better than a 2-1 winner."

De Blasio gets a 49-39 percent favorability rating, down from 58-34 percent in May. For Malliotakis, 78 percent of voters don't know enough to form an opinion of her. For Dietl, 74 percent don't know enough.

The poll of 877 New York City voters was conducted July 20-26 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.1 percentage points.
