President Trump is so unpopular among Big Apple voters, he even trails Mayor Bill de Blasio by a 12% margin.

Nearly half of New Yorkers said they support De Blasio, who scored 0% in a recent poll in Iowa, over Trump, who only garnered 36% of voter support, according to a new Siena poll.

Trump does far worse against Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-New York), winning just 34% to her 58% in a hypothetical matchup.

“Blue New York shows no interest in supporting the incumbent Republican president for re-election," said Siena College pollster Steven Greenberg.

Republican Party accuses London Mayor Sadiq Khan of ‘denigrating the memory of D-Day’

Republican Party accuses London Mayor Sadiq Khan of ‘denigrating the memory of D-Day’ Republican National Committee spokeswoman Liz Harrington took a swipe at London Mayor Sadiq Khan after he said Trump used the same language as the “fascists of the 20th century.” “What I would say is rude is when the president of the United States is on his way to join with our great ally, United Kingdom, to commemorate the 75th anniversary of defeating fascism and defeating Nazism and saving the world order for freedom and democracy, to be accused and smeared by the mayor of London of being a fascist with no evidence. So that is what is rude and divisive,” Harrington said in an interview with the BBC.

Gillibrand, who is lagging herself in the crowded Democratic field of 24 candidates, is favored by Democrats over de Blasio by a wide 56%-to-25% margin statewide and even leads him in the city by almost 2-1.

Just 29% of Empire State voters want to see Trump re-elected, compared to 65% who want to see “someone else" in the White House.

Voters gave Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo a 52% approval rating, up a bit from recent months. At the same time, 58% oppose his announced plans to run for a fourth term in 2022.

The poll also showed most New Yorkers have no problem with pot – but granting driver’s licenses for undocumented immigrants is a different story.

It pegged support for legalizing recreational marijuana at 55% compared to 40% who are opposed.

CNN Poll: Biden continues to lead crowded Democratic field

CNN Poll: Biden continues to lead crowded Democratic field Former Vice President Joe Biden continues to be the top pick for the Democratic nomination for president among Democrats and Democratic-leaning registered voters, according to a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS, but his support has faded some since just after the official launch of his campaign. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.

Just 41% of respondents approve of the proposed measure to allow undocumented immigrants to get driver’s licenses compared to 53% who oppose the idea.

Advocates of the so-called Green Light plan note that support for the driver’s license plan ticked up in recent months as the public learns more about it.

“The more you explain to New Yorkers that restoring the right of undocumented immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses is an issue of fairness, economic justice, and road safety, the more people get it,” said Steve Choi, executive director of the New York Immigration Coalition.

New Yorkers by an even wider margin support eliminating religious exemptions for vaccination requirements, with 84% backing eliminating the loophole.
