Poll: Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s approval rating slipping
Fewer Chicago residents are taking a liking to Mayor Rahm Emanuel.
Crain’s Chicago Business and an ISPOS poll says only 2% of city residents strongly approve of his job performance. 12% somewhat approve of his performance.
Crain’s says on the other end, 13% strongly disapprove, 9% somewhat disapprove and 13% lean toward disapproval.
He was more popular in Crain’s last performance poll in September.
Statewide, Crain’s reports an increase in negative attitudes toward the mayor because of a wave of murders in the city, proposed school closings and his hard-ball image.
