Poll: New Yorkers disapprove of back turning on mayor

A new poll says that most New Yorkers don't approve of police officers turning their backs on Mayor Bill de Blasio. 



It happened as the mayor spoke during the funerals for slain NYPD Detectives Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos. 



According to the survey from Quinnipiac University, 69 percent of those asked are against the officers' actions. 



The poll also found that 77 percent think relations are "generally bad" between the mayor and the NYPD. Of those, 43 percent blame de Blasio and 43 percent blame the police department.
