'Lowest approval rating since taking office'

According to a new NY1-Marist poll, Mayor Bloomberg's approval rating is now at 37 percent, the "lowest approval rating since taking office."In October, it was 50 percent.

Most of it is chalked up to the botched response to the blizzard. But, the CityTime scandal and rollout of the new schools chancellor probably didn't help either.

When asked about the snow storm, 71 percent of adults said they disapproved of how the mayor handled it. When asked about the legacy the mayor will leave behind, only 39 percent thought it would be a positive one.
