Schumer’s Approval Rating Hits 15-Year Low

posted on September 23, 2015

Less than a month after he teamed up with cousin Amy Schumer to push for stronger gun control, Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., is already seeing results.

Actually, a better word might be “consequences.” In a press conference, Amy Schumer described their three-part gun-control plan—which includes begging retailers to require completion of background checks (despite the three-day provision in federal law) and penalizing states based on NICS system submissions—as “sensible measures and restrictions.” But a new Quinnipiac University survey suggests New Yorkers might disagree.

According to the study, Schumer’s approval rating has slipped to a 15-year low (54 percent) despite support among New Yorkers for his position on the Iran nuclear deal. A 2000 poll put his approval rating at 52 percent; however, with a 2.7 percent margin of error in this survey, it’s possible he’s polling even lower now than he did then.
