Rahm's Poll Numbers Not So Great in Rahmaland

A new Crain’s/Ipsos poll shows that Mayor Rahm Emanuel's popularity has fallen sharply since voters were last surveyed in September:
Just 2 percent of Chicagoans surveyed said they strongly approve of the mayor's job performance, with 12 percent somewhat approving and 5 percent leaning that way. At the opposite end, 13 percent strongly disapprove, 9 percent somewhat disapprove and 13 percent lean toward disapproval.

In Chicago, that gives Mr. Emanuel a net minus 16 rating, down from the plus 4 he had in September, when 37 percent approved and 33 percent disapproved.

  1. everyone knew the previous mayor was a corrupt scumbag but thet didn't make any difference to his election results, unless Rahm is cutting the flow of cash to the special interests, then he is pretty safe.

  2. To know, know, know him
    Is to loathe, loathe, loathe him
    And I do dumdumdum, and I do dumdumdum, and I do

    Apologies to Phil Spector

  3. The poll didn't count the dead who really vote.
