In November of this year, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio will be up for re-election.
A Rasmussen poll published Tuesday found that one potential rival in the mayoral race, Hillary Clinton, fared quite poorly in the popularity field.
Of likely voters in the city, 58 percent said they would not want the former presidential candidate to run for the position of mayor, compared with 23 percent who stated that they would want her to run.
The results show that more than twice the number of surveyees who supported the idea of Clinton running rejected the idea. Nineteen percent of voters were undecided.
Mayor de Blasio also has cause for concern, however. To date, Paul Massey Jr., a Republican challenger in the race, has raised $1.6 million to de Blasio’s $1 million.

While Clinton has shown interest in the role, she has said she would only consider vying for it if the current mayor were to step aside.
The Rasmussen survey was conducted between Mar. 2 and Mar. 5 and included 1,000 likely voters. There is a three percent margin of error either direction in the results.
