Q Poll: NYC wants to keep its horse-drawn carriages


Keep the horse-drawn carriages in the city.

That was the overwhelming response in a Quinnipiac University poll today as New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has vowed to get rid of the horses and replace them with antique cars to ride through Central Park and the surrounding area.

The Quinnipiac poll said that by 61 percent to 28 percent, voters want to keep the New York City tradition.

The poll said there was support among all groups. There was almost no gender gap as women opposed a ban 60 percent to 28 percent, while men supported carriage horses 63 percent to 28 percent.

It’s one of the few areas of disagreement among New Yorkers and their new mayor.

By a 67-21 percent margin, New York City voters were optimistic about the next four years with de Blasio as mayor.
