Voters Already Turning On New Mayor Of New York City Over Dramatic Rise In Crime

New York’s new Democrat mayor Eric Adams ran on a platform that included dealing with the city’s crime problem, but he is not delivering.

In fact, some crime in the city has gotten worse since he took over.

His honeymoon pphase has ended quickly as a result and voters are already turning on him.

Breitbart News reports:

Voters Turn on NYC Mayor Eric Adams over Handling of Crime

New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) made tackling crime a central plank of his successful election campaign last November. A poll released Wednesday shows his inability to deliver is being punished by disillusioned voters.

A survey by Quinnipiac University shows crime is the top concern of 49 percent of city voters — more than triple the 15 percent of respondents who cited affordable housing and 12 percent homelessness.

However just 37 percent of city residents approved of Adams’s performance on crime, compared to 54 percent who disapproved.

This is a reversal from the 49 percent who approved and 35 percent who disapproved in a survey as recently as last February.

The divide between the mayor’s intentions and voter expectations is just as stark when party affiliation is taken into account, even as he appeared at the Met Gala this week in a suit emblazoned with the message “End Gun Violence” as Breitbart News reported.

He needs to get to work on this problem. Even the liberal media is calling him out.

Crime is now the number one issue for voters in the state.

Again, Adams campaigned on this issue.

People are out of patience.
