New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is projected to win his reelection bid.

The incumbent mayor was expected to beat republican state Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis in the left-leaning state.

De Blasio’s time as mayor has been filled with public squabbles with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, and investigations into “pay-to-play” allegations over his campaign finance practices.

As people voted, protesters also gathered outside of polling places, calling out De Blasio for not following through on a campaign promise to shut down Rikers Island prison.

  • Carol Upton

    It is the liberal east coast. No surprise, but disappointed in people, nonetheless. Re-electing DeBlasio reminds me of the Germans re-electing Merkel! Crazy!

  • C B

    Good Lord , New York is sicker than I ever imagined …………….. I wish they’d stay out of Florida in the Winter …. So Obnoxious

  • Angrygenxr

    New Yorkers deserve him.

  • 1doubtingthomas

    Idiots

  • Bobby Green

    New Yorks are one screwed up people if this loser is voted in. He has destroyed the New York police department, he has vowed to take down statues, he wants a sanctuary city, and he’s against white people because he’s married to a black girl. A complete loser.

  • grandmother5

    I don’t know much about Mayor Bill de Blasio, but the one thing I know is, when two police officers were shot and killed by an assassin while they were in the patrol car. He didn’t go to their funerals. Any mayor, I think, would or should go to a police officer funeral. Instead he chose to fly to Paris for the climate control meeting. To me that’s not saying much for the mayor of NY. How much does he really care about the people of NY? We have a democrat mayor in my city. After Harvey all he could really say is, he wanted to raise property tax on home owners. The very people that lost everything in the flooding. The state gave our city $50 mil and the mayor still wants a temporary tax for a year. Democrat thinking is when something pops up, they say tax something or increase the tax on something.

  • Sylvia Avila

    What is wrong with NY? Have they gone insane? or just lost consciousness? Or just plain stupid? This guy is is poison.

  • Books

    New York is getting exactly what it deserves. If they vote for this person and then he wins he has the freedom to continue to be a jerk!

  • Scotty

    They did it again. You can’t fix stupid

  • pippin2

    New Yorkers are absolutely nuts!

  • …remain calm and return fire

    Sadly, NYC continues to circle the drain.

  • kdou

    SAD no words left for NYC:(

  • Max

    For some reason, I always think that conservative types in heavy blue areas just stay home, knowing that their ‘guy’ seldom, if ever, wins. It must be demoralizing to some extent. Admittedly, it would probably keep me home.

  • Javanne

    New Yorkers will now deserve what they get, and it won’t be pleasant. Hey, New York! Bye-bye.

  • Bob Azarigian

    Proof that the majority of NYC voters are of the same mind set. Supporters of corruption and protecting illegals just to mention a few of his outstanding contributions to the city. Good luck to that cesspool.

  • Deny

    I guess New Yorkers are dumber than I gave them credit for. They reelected this muzzie loving NYPD hating slug–AGAIN. When your city starts falling apart and the muzzies start taking over–don’t blame anybody but yourselves–you earned this.

  • bucketnutz

    Wow another Headline,,, Liberal Dem wins in Liberal Dem City,, Wow what an accomplishment.

  • a voice of concern

    There is a word misstated in this article WINS = BOUGHT

  • James Batten Jr.

    Amazing, he uses taxpayer money to protest police overseas, and gets rewarded. I predict NYC will be first to die in holocaust.

  • Robert Johnson

    Democrat Insanity = doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results! Unbelievable !

  • Varangian Guard

    That’s too bad, but not surprising

  • showmanrfc

    Sad day for some in NYC. I’m in Canada and feel for you.

  • Scott Henke

    Looks like the Republican Assemblywoman was another victim of misogyny and, since De Blasio’s pretty much a Communist, Russian collusion.

  • denise

    I dont understand it…NYC used to be such a great town , MY town…now all the muslims terrorists attack it..Do they know something we don’t.
    I hope deBlasio is up to the challenge of keeping the people safe…so far he isnt doing so well..I should have voted for him, but I just stayed home…me and the neighbors had a bit too much wine this afternoon.

  • Randolph Oberlin

    Hope every NYPD officer resigns. Maybe he can hire MS-13 to patrol the streets.
    Stupid is as stupid does.

  • Larry Blair

    California, Virginia, New Jersey and New York. They get what they deserve. They lost the Presidential election and now they lose again.

  • Ed L

    The crook won again

  • yumadlh

    Insanity on display! Will the Statue of Liberty be next. De Blasio does not like statues.

    • Disgusted Caucasian

      Unless they portray Castro and Che Guevara in a positive light.

    • grandmother5

      Again I must say I don’t know him, but I think he has an ego problem. Looks very conceited that doesn’t realized he’s just like anyone else. Put his pants on one leg at a time just like the rest of us. BTW, I think he would like a very tall statue of himself in Times Square.

    • Lawmadsen

      We can leave the statue of liberty up but we should replace the torch with a NO VACANCY sign.

      • grandmother5

        Now that sounds like a great plan.

  • Deplorable Phytomorphogenesis

    new york will continue to smell like lamb chops, and toilets.
    No more new york. It is the ugliest, after california and *gulps* maryland.
    Was there, and found the state to be exceptionally ugly, esp. their buildings.

  • Areyoukiddingme

    I’m convinced that liberals are as mentally ill as they come and every time I think I’m wrong things like this happen and I wonder how they can breathe on their own.

  • Bay0Wulf

    NYC … I lived there for many years … then came Dinkens … Bloomberg … then I left … DiBlasio …
    Need I say more?
    The People of NYC are almost all Immigrant Liberal Kneejerk Democrats. Regardless of how recklessly stupid it might be, they will ALWAYS vote for whoever promises to “give” them the most for “free”.

  • Melissa McShane

    They will re-elect De Blasio no doubt. Lots of elitists, young people, and many people who were born and raised in socialistic environments.

  • Larry Huff

    Dems win Gov of VA! Thanks Trump!

  • sanman99

    If you NY’s re elect Deblasio then there is no helping you. I for one will NEVER set foot there.

  • wvned

    Is Stalin or Marx ahead?

  • RMCS Ret.

    NYC is as big a pit as LA and SFran. At least with LA and SFran there’s a remote possibility that NKorea could solve the problem. Just a serious threat of a Nuke might get their attention. Heaven forbid that a Nuke is ever actually used, but I can envision the panic if a serious threat ever arises.

  • PatrickJ

    It isn’t just DeBlasio. It’s the entire east coast. The entire west coast. It’s anywhere Liberals take root.
    They border on being a disease on the planet. Thank God we have Trump.

    • CASSY IS SASSY

      Yes….Thank God!
      MAGA…MASA…MAAA!

    • Bob Azarigian

      Amen to that Patrick! However you can exclude SC and sometimes GA and FL from that list.

  • Mariner

    Rikers Island Prison should be expanded not shut down

  • ShemSilber2

    IMO, anyone who even wants to be the mayor of NYC has GOT to be out of their ever-loving minds, nu? It’s probably the world’s #1 insane asylum, even worse than Chicago, where I grew up and am glad to be OUT of it, through the blessing and mercy of the Master Yahusha (Lord Jesus), amein!

  • Bud

    for not following through on a campaign promise to shut down Rikers Island prison.

    So now libs want to not only have the mentally ill running the streets but the criminals as well.

    • Larry Huff

      No, we want you NAZZIS locked up in FEMA camps.

      • Disgusted Caucasian

        I can see by your lack of up votes that virtually no one shares your twisted, evil opinions.

        • Larry Huff

          You NAZZIS don’t share my opinions. I wear that as a badge of honor, you NAZZI piece of shyte.

          • Disgusted Caucasian

            Your boss George Soros…real name, György Schwartz, says it’s time for bed now.

          • Larry Huff

            Who is Soros?

        • Bob Azarigian

          That was the same thought I had about your posting. Bud as 9 you have 0.

          • Disgusted Caucasian

            Actually Bob…I was posting to a “guest” troll that had his comment deleted by the mods. I was referring to his up votes on his profile and not in the thread. No part of my comment was directed at Bud.

          • Bob Azarigian

            My sincere apology. I misunderstood you were referencing. Very frustrating times we now live in.

  • KYStargazzer

    De Blasio

    ANTI
    American
    Cops
    Integrity
    Firefighters

    And a full blown Communist

    Well NY? How you going to vote?

    • Rick Viera

      Absolutely right on the nose.

  • Stafarian

    Please New York, De Blasio is as vile and evil as the clintons.
    Nicole Malliotakis is the only answer.

  • Varangian Guard

    He honored the city daily with a Puerto Rican flag lapel pin. Even on the day of the attack last week and subsequent pressers days after. He eliminated the CT squad from the PD and disrespected PO’s after BLM assaults.
    Time to go

  • CASSY IS SASSY

    If they RE-ELECT De Blasio……..
    Then it just proves that one can get pregnant by (_*_) s3x!

    • I. Forgot 2

      LOL!!! They re-elected the idiot.

      • CASSY IS SASSY

        Well….They deserve what is going to happen to them………Losers.

  • landy fincannon

    New York is a foreign country, right? South of the Mason Dixon line here.
    Just kidding

    • Bud

      You’re right. I heard that the UN annexed NYC and just didn’t tell anyone since it wouldn’t have made any difference.

      • Larry Huff

        Who would pay for your free stuff? We wealthy liberals carry you poor old rubes.

        • PGCDan

          Think again rube. Normal working Americans don’t care about your decisive rhetoric and your holier-than-thou complexes. They care about having a better life, for which you’re typically not a part of. Wrong site buddy.

          • Larry Huff

            NORMAL working people vote Democratic. White opioid addicts collect welfare and other free stuff and vote Republican.

      • landy fincannon

        Avarice is good. Thanks for the laugh

  • G. Robert

    Eh. NYC will re-elect that commie mayor anyway. Sad 🙁

    • I. Forgot 2

      Sadly, you were right.

  • Phil M. Kelley

    If NYC elects a conservative mayor I hope I am near a hospital when I learn about it

    • Kathleen Burns Griggs

      lol I hear that! I might just need smelling salts if they get that smart. I’m willing to bet that the NYPD rank-and-file and FDNY are probably not going to turn out with a whole lot of love for DeBlasio this time around. We’ll see.

      • Phil M. Kelley

        Agreed about the NYPD and FDNY, but aggregated with families included they would be a voting block of perhaps 100k

    • JustmJustm

      LOL THAN YOU DON’T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THAT HEART ATTACK ANYTIME SOON BROTHER………

  • I left Long Island in ’80 for boot camp, I go back for funerals and weddings.

    When I had to scream ” INS ever one out front with your ID ” at a local 7-11 just to get a cup off coffee, that was the last wedding I attended. Ill send a card with a Franklin stuck in it.

    NY gets what they deserve.

    • RockyMt, CO

      LOL I would love to have been there to watch that one at the 7-11. I feel the same way and I am west of Denver. I have not been to downtown Denver in years and won’t go, ever.

      • PatrickJ

        Such a beautiful city. Lost to us now.

        • Disgusted Caucasian

          There is such a thing as a beautiful city??

          • Larry Huff

            Detroit is the Emerald City compared to the rural white welfare METH ghettos that you NAZZIS live in.

          • Disgusted Caucasian

            “Emerald City”…..Detriot….LOLOLOLOLOL You are delusional just like every other communist.

          • Larry Huff

            And you are hooked on opioids like all nazzis. You wouldn’t last 10 minutes in Detroit, you nazzi savage.

          • Bud

            Nazis practice really, really big government, huffy comrade. Those in this country who push that philosophy are the leftist fascist liberals. Learn something.

          • larryjcr

            Indeed. The Nazis’ and Fascists’ ideal was Authoritarian Socialism. An all-controlling government of unrestricted authority. The only difference between Nazism and Communism is that one was Nationalist and the other CLAIMED (falsely) to be ‘internationalist’. The only difference between Communism and Progressivism is that one claims it must come to power by violent revolution and the other wants to accomplish the same thing by manipulation of the political process.

    • Snideley_whiplassche

      Hey! You’re on to something with the 7-11 thing! Imagine this going national……
      With videos!

      • The clerk thanked me and bought my coffee. Said they make a mess and then ask for free refills.

  • xmisterx9

    De Blasio is an embarrassment that most likely will win…but hoping for a surprise.

    • Right wing

      Does anyone think the vote count will be anything but corrupt?

      • JustmJustm

        You say ” VOTE count”
        WHAT IS THAT??
        They don’t even know it’s exist!!

        Remember the elimination of 250k+ voters that was
        NAT FAVORABLE TO HITLERY??????

      • PatrickJ

        Ban the thought from your mind. You full well know no Democrat would even think of doing such a thing.

  • Biform25

    If they re-elect disgusting De Blasio they’re pretty much done.

    MAGA!

    • MarcS

      It’s NYC why wouldn’t they?

      • Randy Duke

        It’s a New Yawk kinda thing !

    • All American

      If they re-elect DeBlosio to Mayor of NYC I would be shocked!
      He has not appropriately supported NYPD. Fire Department paramedics and EMTs who responded to the 9/11 attacks and now suffer from medical illnesses say the city is forgetting about them.

      • Christopher Binkowski

        There are people who are evil. They still get to vote.

        • All American

          They probably arrived just in time via bus to register

      • I. Forgot 2

        Be shocked AA!! A communist occupied city will most always vote for their kind.

        • Sylvia Avila

          Yes, it seem so! Fools!

        • All American

          My God I was shocked he is such a sell out

      • Bob Azarigian

        What did this election prove to you about the majority of the NYC residence?

        • GBWO

          That most didn’t vote and they get what they deserve. MAGA

        • All American

          I’m pleased that my family relocated far from NY to Texas in the early 90’s!
          God Bless Texas!
          We have never returned to NY, not even for a visit and yes it’s that easy to forget🇺🇸

          • dragon lady

            Thank you, we love it.

        • dragon lady

          They can’t be bothered with facts.

      • Tom Hanlon

        Police department needs to stand down when DeDipstick is in need of them. Maybe the state will get lucky and someone will shoot the pos dead in the streets and the police can again turn their back on him.

        • Sylvia Avila

          Nice, funny but true!

        • All American

          Cannot believe this pos was re-elected by 65% of the vote. I guess New Yorkers don’t mind the tax increase and Sanctuary status. I believe Soros works his “magic” numbers out of NYC.

          • dragon lady

            Believe you are right.

          • All American

            I am “Right” totally

        Gotta be something in the water in NYC that forces them to vote D

        • All American

          Metal illness??

      • dragon lady

        Would not be shocked. Some folks just like to gripe but do nothing.

      • Carol Upton

        They did and I am totally shocked and surprised! NYC must be full of crazy liberals! I’ll be sure to avoid a visit!

    • JustmJustm

      Serves them well, another term they realise how suck the left is……

    • Disgusted Caucasian

      A commie mayor reelected by a commie populace…..what a surprise. I’m sure the fakestream media will tout this as yet another victory against Trump.

      • Larry Huff

        The whole night was a victory against Trump. You NAZZIS got your butts kicked. MORE TO COME!!!

        • Disgusted Caucasian

          Your butt is still politically inflamed. Like it or not, Trump is your master and HE is now the President with a phone and a pen. How do you like it??

          • Larry Huff

            No one likes it. Trump approval at 33%.

          • Disgusted Caucasian

            More BS just like the election polls. BS.

          • Larry Huff

            The election polls were correct. They said Hillary would win comfortably and she did, by 3 million votes.

            Your Dear Leader is despised by REAL Americans, only you deranged NAZZIS support him.

          • Disgusted Caucasian

            Actually, you’re the one that’s deranged. The popular vote doesn’t matter in a presidential election. BOTH candidates know how the electoral collage works and they campaign accordingly. If the popular vote was the deciding factor, Trump would have simply campaigned to that end and the result would have been the same. Hillary came up short and you, and other children like you, continue to throw a tantrum because eight years of communist destruction of America is now being reversed.

          • Larry Huff

            HAHAHAHA!!! Your Dear Leader got his butt kicked. America rejected him and the right wing agenda massively.

            He would have campaigned and won?????? Are you on METH? LOL!!!!

          • dragon lady

            Love your logic.

          • Disgusted Caucasian

            Thanks DL…just common sense….but I believe Conservatism is simply common sense.

          • Bob Azarigian

            Very much!

        • AsmallVictory

          Uh, yeah… Nazi equals Socialist equals Left! You might want to read up on history. Trump clearly does not represent the left, right? No referendum when Jersey and NY are more than half libtard, right?

          • Larry Huff

            Provide proof that NAZZIS are on the left. But you can’t, you are a liar.

            STOP POSTING LIES IN THIS FORUM!!!

          • Jerry LaBrake

            Nazi stands for national socialist workers party. Read a book sometime or at least recognize google is your friend.

          • Larry Huff

            So you have no proof that NAZZIS are on the left and a liberal caught you lying.

            Do you have any self pride at all?

      • Sylvia Avila

        Yes, Communist is alive and well in NYC! the people have all indoctrinate by MSM! NYC lost and fallen off the moral cliff fast. NO hope!

        They are already doing so.

      But i am sure that they WILL TRY!!!
