Poll: NYC voters back Bloomberg’s push against Styrofoam
According to a Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday, 69% of voters support the ban against plastic foam food and drink containers, while 26% oppose it.
New York City voters, however, don’t feel quite the same way about the ban on large sugary drinks. Slightly more than half of all voters oppose the ban, which was approved last fall. African American voters especially oppose it, with six in 10 saying it shouldn’t be in place.
And while voters may like his new environmental push, Bloomberg’s approval rating is slightly down from January 17. Voters approve of the job he’s doing by 53%-40%, while 56% approved of him a little more than a month ago.
