BROOKLYN - A new poll says that most New York City voters are optimistic about the next four years with a new mayor.

According to a Quinnipiac University survey, 67 percent of people in the five boroughs have a good outlook on Mayor Bill de Blasio, compared to 21 percent who are pessimistic about the years ahead.

Just over half of voters say they approve of the job de Blasio has done in his first two weeks in office, while 13 percent disapprove and 34 percent still aren't sure.

Many Brooklyn viewers told News 12 they felt good about the mayor, but most say it's just too soon to tell.
