Seventy seven percent of New Yorkers say the relationship between Mayor Bill de Blasio and police officers is bad, but they’re split on who to blame. According to a new Quinnipiac University poll, 45 percent say it’s de Blasio’s fault, while 43 percent blame the police for it.
Fifty two percent of New York City voters believe police discipline has broken down and 69 percent don’t like that officers turned their back on the mayor during a funeral for two police officers.
Sixty two percent believe Commissioner Bill Bratton can restore order, with his approval rating climbing by 12 points up to 56 percent.
"Maybe it's sympathy for a guy in a tough position, a commissioner leading a defiant department, but Commissioner William Bratton's job approval numbers jump up," said Quinnipiac University Poll Assistant Director Maurice Carroll.
Just 18 percent of voters have a favorable view of PBA President Pat Lynch and 77 percent say his comment about blood on the steps of City Hall is “too extreme.”
