A new survey suggests Mayor Mitch Landrieu continues to enjoy strong support among New Orleans voters.

The University of New Orleans Survey Research Center surveyed 552 Orleans Parish residents by phone from February 16-28.  The center found Landrieu holds a 70 percent approval rating among respondents.

The New Orleans City Council drew a 53 percent job approval rating in the survey.

"Landrieu's 70 percent job approval rating is in line with the 69 percent approval rating he received in the UNO Survey Research Center's 2012 Quality of Life Survey and slightly lower than the 75 percent approval rating measured in the 2010 Quality of Life Survey taken shortly after his election," according to Ed Chervenak, director of the Survey Research Center.

"The mayor's approval ratings provide him with the political capital that can help him implement his vision and programs," said Chervenak."

The survey has a sampling error of +/- 4.2 percent, according to a statement from UNO.
