Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is losing the support of voters, according to a new Chicago Tribune poll.

A poll of 800 registered voters found that the mayor's approval rating has taken a dive.

Two years ago it was 52 percent. That didn't change much last year, but now it's only at 35 percent.

Chicago Teachers Union President Karen Lewis has not announced that she's running for mayor, but this poll shows she leads Emanuel, with 43 percent of the vote.

Emanuel has 39 percent, but 14 percent are undecided.

Another question asked if Emanuel relates to voters: 32 percent said he was in touch but 62 percent said he was out of touch.
