Life in Rahm’s Chicago. Teachers, schools, pensions and murders. Poll numbers take a huge hit. Just 2% strongly approve.
There was last week’s trial ballon about Rahm running for president in 2016.
Of the United States.
Then there are reports of his meddling in the May CTU election.
He may want to do some rethinking in light of polling numbers coming from Crain’s today.
Just two percent strongly approve of his job performance as mayor.
Two percent. That’s the fat content in a glass of milk. Not an approval number.
Half of those responding share various levels of disapproval.
That may suggest that Mr. Emanuel has paid a political price in battling the Chicago Teachers Union, pushing for government worker pension reform and struggling to reverse a spike in murders that has continued for more than a year.
Yep. It just might suggest that.
