Mayor Eric Adams has set the new record for lowest approval rating in New York City's history, according to a new poll from Quinnipiac University.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams’ approval rating has plummeted to the lowest level the city has recorded, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll.

The poll, released Wednesday, has Adams at just 28% support among self-identified registered voters. Adams’ administration has struggled for more than a year to address the city’s immigration crisis. The rating is the lowest Quinnipiac has ever recorded for an New York City mayor since it began tracking the statistic in 1996.

Broken down by issue, 33% of New Yorkers approve of Adams’ work on crime, while 60% disapprove. On public schools, 31% support him and 53% disapprove. On immigration, 26% approve and 66% disapprove. On the city budget, 22% approve and 66% disapprove. His worst issue is that of homelessness, however, where just 22% support his policies and a massive 72% disapprove.

Quinnipiac conducted its poll from Nov. 30 to Dec. 4, surveying 1,297 self-identified registered voters via landline and cellphones. The poll reported a margin of error of 2.7%.

Adams’ time in office has suffered from political scandal in addition to his policy woes. The FBI has launched a probe into his campaign finances, and Adams was hit with a sexual assault accusation last month by a woman who claims to be his former colleague.

Adams denied the accusation in a statement to the press prior to Thanksgiving.

“The mayor does not know who this person is. If they ever met, he doesn’t recall it. But he would never do anything to physically harm another person and vigorously denies any such claim,” a City Hall spokesperson told Fox News Digital in a statement.
