De Blasio climbs in polls despite corruption probe

Despite federal and state probes into his campaign fund-raising, Mayor de Blasio has scored his best marks with voters in a year, a poll released Tuesday said.

Forty-seven percent favor de Blasio’s re-election this November, while 44 percent want him booted out of office, according to a Quinnipiac University survey with a margin of error of about 4 percentage points.

The results end a year-long trend of voters rejecting the mayor’s re-election bid, including a Jan. 18 poll in which his candidacy was opposed, 48 percent to 42 percent.

In the new poll, de Blasio also earned his best job-approval rating in 13 months: 50 percent to 42 percent.

He leads potential Republican challenger Paul Massey, 59 percent to 25 percent.
