NEW YORK, NY - February 25, 2016 -  What’s on the minds of New Yorkers? Baruch College has partnered with NY1 News for the second year in a row on “The City Poll,” a news segment dedicated to analyzing and discussing issues about New York City’s quality of life. The City Poll is conducted by Baruch College Survey Research at the School of Public Affairs, under the direction of faculty members Mickey Blum and Doug Muzzio.

Throughout the year, “The City Poll” will survey and report on the effectiveness of city leaders and services, neighborhood needs, and other aspects about life in New York City. Previous “City Poll” topics have included: Mayor de Blasio’s job performance, Pope Francis’ favorability rating among New Yorkers and the battle of the Bronx bombers: Babe Ruth vs. Derek Jeter.

On February 23, Mickey Blum, a Distinguished Lecturer and Director of Baruch College Survey Research (BCSR) joined Inside City Hall host Errol Louis to analyze and discuss the first poll of 2016. Watch video here.

Baruch College will continue to track the results from future polls as they become available throughout the year. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook for continued “City Poll” coverage.
