 A new poll shows most New Yorkers believe the city’s income inequality will remain about the same under Bill de Blasio’s leadership.

The New York Times/Siena College poll also showed 23 percent think public education should be his top priority. That was followed by keeping the city safe from crime, promoting economic development and dealing with the rich/poor gap.

De Blasio was elected mayor on a central campaign promise to fight the city’s widening income inequality.

Respondents also believed many conditions will improve under de Blasio. They include public schools and transportation, the ability to obtain a good job and affordable housing, and police keeping New Yorkers safe.

The poll interviewed 1,016 adults by telephone Dec. 7-11. The margin of error is plus or minus three percentage points.
