Scandal-hit New York mayor fights for political survival

January 30, 2024

Once seen as a possible Democratic Party presidential contender, the city's second Black mayor is now fighting for his political life. "History shows us that it's possible for Mayor Adams to rebound from his 28 percent job approval rating," she said. He went on to be a state legislator and president of the New York City borough of Brooklyn. Adams told media that the Big Apple's attractiveness to newly-arrived migrants was because the city was a "victim of its own success." Snow, the pollster, warned that "there's a high level of concern among voters that New York City will not be able to accommodate the influx of migrants."
