New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has his highest job approval rating in a year, according to the results of a new poll.

The Quinnipiac University poll of New York City voters calculated that de Blasio has a 50 percent approval rating, his highest figure since January 2016.

Other key findings in the survey:

  • 47 percent of voters said de Blasio deserves to be reelected, while 44 percent said the opposite.
  • 43 percent said they would vote for de Blasio over a list of four other Democrats.
  • In a hypothetical matchup with Republican Paul Massey, de Blasio leads by a wide margin of 59 percent to 25 percent.
  • 52 percent said de Blasio has strong leadership qualities.
  • 53 percent said de Blasio understands their problems.
  • 52 percent said de Blasio is honest and trustworthy.

"It's close, but more voters think de Blasio deserves reelection than not," said Maurice Carroll, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll. "And he's positive in the favorable-unfavorable measure and in the standard traits — leadership, empathy, honesty."

The Quinnipiac poll also touched on President Donald Trump and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Trump garnered a 70 percent disapproval rating, while Cuomo earned a 67 percent approval rating.
