New Yorkers may disagree on who should be the next mayor, but they do agree on one thing they don’t like the current one, a new Post poll found.

A whopping 72 percent of the 1,000 New Yorkers surveyed rated Hizzoner’s performance as “fair” or “bad,” while only 26 percent said he was doing a “good” or “excellent” job.

The amazingly low scores come amid a surge in gun violence that has messed up town hall and put de Blasio on the defensive amid the coronavirus pandemic amid his crime strategies.

Hizzoner spent much of the public health crisis in small arguments with Governor Andrew Cuomo over how best to address the problem, and caught flak in particular for a dizzying series of setbacks in how and when public school children were brought back into classrooms should be.

He has also failed to come up with a clear, specific plan to combat the tide of gun violence in the city, even acknowledging earlier this month that the rest of the year will be “a major challenge”.

The bad grades also come amid de Blasio’s newfound acceptance of the Big Apple booster aspects of mayor’s office, which he has long avoided.

He’s used to promoting local cafes, eating pizza during press conferences, and encouraging New Yorkers to return to the movies and theater as the city’s vaccination campaign progresses.
