Poll: New Yorkers Do Not Like Donald Trump

A new poll released Thursday showed the majority of New Yorkers do not like Donald Trump.

The NBC 4 New York/Wall Street Journal/Marist Poll found 61 per cent of New York City voters have an unfavorable impression of Trump. Only 36 per cent were found to have a favourable impression of the reality television star and four per cent were undecided.

Trump, who has made a habit of publicly flirting with the possibility of running for president, has indicated he might be interested in running against Democratic New York Governor Andrew Cuomo this year as a Republican. The poll found Cuomo would defeat Trump 70 per cent to 26 per cent with 5 per cent undecided. According to the poll, Cuomo would also easily defeat his other two likely potential rivals, Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino and Buffalo, N.Y. businessman Carl Paladino.
