USS Bloomberg adrift in third term say NY voters

Wednesday, October 19, 2011 - 10:16 AM

More than half of respondents in a new Quinnipiac poll say Mayor Bloomberg has lost focus during his third term, which the mayor was able to serve thanks to a controversial overturn of city law. According to the poll, 52 percent of New York City voters polled said the mayor was adrift.

Likewise, the bump in job approval number the mayor received after the tropical storm scare earlier this summer has been erased. The mayor's post-storm job approval high was 52 percent on September 12. It's now fallen back back to near the 45 percent mark it was at on July 27, according to Quinnipiac.
