Hillary Clinton, former Secretary of State, has been rumored to be sticking around New York City in order to run for mayor. According to a new Rasmussen poll released Tuesday, she did not perform well.
More than half of voters in New York City do NOT want Clinton to run. Only 23% of voters were agreeable to the idea of her running for mayor.
Although Clinton expressed interest in the race, she said she would only be running if Bill de Blasio was not a part of the race. Bill de Blasio, current mayor of New York City, is set to run for reelection, but will be challenged by Republican Paul Massey Jr.
From Daily Caller:
Rasmussen surveyed 1,000 likely voters from March 2 through March 5. The poll included a margin of error of 3 percentage points in either direction. Fifty-eight percent of likely voters in the city don’t want Clinton to run again, compared to just 23 percent of voters who wanted the former presidential candidate to run.
Nineteen percent of voters hadn’t yet made up their mind. Current Mayor Bill de Blasio is set to run for reelection, but trails Republican challenger Paul Massey, Jr. in terms of fundraising. Massey raised $1.6 million in the race so far, compared to de Blasio’s $1 million.
