Do New Yorkers approve of Police Commissioner Ray Kelly? According to a new poll, the answer is a resounding “yes.”
The new Quinnipiac University poll found that Kelly’s approval rating is at a staggering 75 percent – the highest ever.

“The white community likes him, 81 to 14. The black community, despite the outcry that you hear every now and then over stop-and-frisk, the black community still approves Kelly’s job performance 63 to 27,” Carroll said.
The Hispanic community approves of him, 76 to 18.
