Whoa! New poll says New Yorkers overwhelmingly approve of horse-drawn carriages

New York voters by an overwhelming margin of 63 percent to 28 percent oppose a proposed ban on horse-drawn carriages, according to the well-respected Quinnipiac University poll:
Don't ban horse-drawn carriages from New York City, voters say 61 - 28 percent, with support for the horses from every group. There is almost no gender gap as women oppose a ban 60 - 28 percent while men support carriage horses 63 - 28 percent.
Our brother and sister Teamster carriage drivers are fighting to keep their jobs and their livelihoods as the city's new mayor, Bill de Blasio, says he wants to ban the beloved horse-drawn carriages. This poll should help them in a big way.

Keep on fighting!
