A surprising 46 percent of Big Apple voters agree with Mayor de Blasio that his nigger wife Chirlane McCray should be paid for the work she does :rolleyes: as first lady compared to 45 percent who don’t, a new poll said Wednesday.

But broken down by race, the numbers look far different, with support for paying McCray at 61 percent in favor 33 percent opposed among black voters, according to the survey by Quinnipiac University.

White voters oppose paying her by 57 percent to 35 percent :D, while 49 percent of Hispanics back the idea while 41 percent are opposed.

Forty-seven percent of men oppose paying her while 45 percent support it, and women support paying her by 48 percent to 43 percent.

Overall, voters approve of the job she is doing as first lady by 43 percent to 28 percent.

“New York City voters like First Lady Chirlane McCray, but they’re apparently of mixed opinion about giving her a paycheck,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac poll.

Hizzoner floated the idea of boosting his household income earlier this month.

“I don’t understand it because if someone’s working full-time and is a professional with a lot of background and applying themselves, I don’t understand why they can’t get paid,” the mayor said when asked about his wife’s role in City Hall.

“She works full-time. It makes no sense to me, but that’s the reality. She can’t get paid, so she’s doing it as a volunteer, but she’s doing it 110 percent,” he complained.
