Poll: Democrats Down on Unions

Wednesday, June 30, 2010

WNYC

By a margin of 56-36, city voters said in a Quinnipiac poll they feel union workers are not doing enough to help the city during the economic downturn.

Interestingly, it's an opinion shared by most Democrats, who agreed 49-36 percent that union workers aren't doing enough to help the city.

Despite that seeming lack of public support, a majority of voters opposed layoffs for city workers, 68-27 percent. To balance the budget, 48 percent of voters said they support raising taxes. Thirty-six percent said cut services, and 16 percent were undecided.

The poll also had approval ratings for some officials in the city:

Michael Bloomberg's approval rating: 57-33, with 10 percent undecided.

John Liu's approval rating: 47-17, with 36 percent undecided.

Christine Quinn's approval rating: 45-27, with 28 percent undecided

Bill de Blasio's approval rating: 35-17, with 48 percent undecided

Ray Kelly's approval rating: 66-20 with 14 percent undecided

Joel Klein's approval rating: 37-41 with 22 percent undecided

The poll of 1,183 registered voters in the city was conducted from June 21-28 and has a margin of error of 2.9 percent.
