NEW YORK (WCBS 880) -- Mayor Bill de Blasio wants to replace President Donald Trump at the White House, but a new poll shows he is just as unpopular as the president in the state of New York.

A Siena College Poll released Tuesday shows 57 percent of New York voters have an unfavorable view of the mayor. In the five boroughs, that number is 58 percent.

Only 25 percent of voters across New York state have a favorable view of the mayor.

Siena College Poll Favorability Ratings

Currently, 32 percent of New Yorkers view President Trump favorably and 64 percent view him unfavorably.

Siena College pollster Steven Greenberg notes both Trump and de Blasio are under water by 32 points.

The poll also found only 28 percent of voters are prepared to re-elect Trump.

“Trump, with a two-to-one negative favorability rating, has hit his lowest favorability rating since January. His job performance rating, with nearly three-quarters of New Yorkers giving him negative reviews, is the worst it’s been this year,” Siena College pollster Steven Greenberg said. “The President continues to enjoy strong support from Republicans but that’s it. While two-thirds of Republicans are prepared to re-elect Trump, 87 percent of Democrats and 61 percent of independents would prefer ‘someone else.’ ”

More than a third of Democrats in the state say they are still undecided who they will pick for president.

Former Vice President Joe Biden has the most support among New York Democrats with 22 percent, followed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren at 17 percent and Sen Bernie Sanders at 15 percent.

New Jersey Sen. Corey Booker and de Blasio both have less than one percent support among New York Democrats.
