I was curious who is more popular in NYC?

I rarely hear NYC politicians criticize our President, like San Francisco and LA politicians. Seems like New York politicians know that President Trump is the one who butters their bread and gave them so much.

Would a NYC politician benefit more if they showed up with President Trump or Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?

Does President Trump enjoy a hometown advantage that he wouldn't in LA, San Francisco or Boston?

President Trump played a large role in the renaissance of NYC. NYC was doing terribly in the 1970s before President Trump build his incredible resorts, hotels, office towers and did extensive office and retail renovations through NYC.

Interesting how NYC was bankrupt in the 1970s and it's economic future changed if President Trump started fixing much of the city up.

It is seems to me that sort President Trump and Rudy Giuliani are the hero's that made NYC the economically superior city it is today.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on the other hand supposedly won one of the most small land area Democratic districts in NYC which would vote for a Democrat no matter what.

My god, I don't believe this ... Donald Trump's effects on the economy of NYC have been tiny. Probably Goldman Sachs alone has had 1000 times more effect on its economy than Trump.

Also, most of those properties were not even built by him, he bought naming rights. They would have been built had he never existed, they just would have had a different name on them.

Trump currently has a 59% disapproval rating in New York state, which is likely higher in NYC (upstate is more conservative than the city itself).

He only received 19% of the vote in 2016 in NYC, his hometown.

Trump is positively despised in New York, in spite of all his attempts of ingratiating himself. In fact, if the NYC upper-crust had been a little more accommodating, we might not have been in this current fix.

It's hard to say...by "popular" I assume you mean well liked.

If I had to say who the one who resonates the most positively out of all of them is Ocasio-Cortez. The press is handling her with kid's gloves and she's a freshman House rep who's young and won in an upset.

Trump is loathed here...I like him, but typically NYers hate him.

De Blasio isn't well liked either and neither is Cuomo. THey are constantly at odds with one another and many of their policies are controversial.

Put down the Koolaid. Seriously. Get some help.

I don't know what you've heard about New York real estate in the 70's and 80's but you are way, way off. trump took advantage of the tax laws of the time, the same as thousands of other people did. He and his family also cheated to evade taxes, discriminated against African Americans, hired undocumented workers repeatedly, were sued thousands of times by contractors they refused to pay, and fought against bringing buildings up to new standards(remember the man killed in a recent Trump Tower fire)?
