But when you don't belong to the people, the people eventually figure it out.
According to a press report in The New York Daily News, a new Marist Poll published today shows that Mayor Michael Bloomberg's popularity has hit a new, five-year low. Of the 696 New York voters who were scientifically surveyed, only 49% of the them said that they thought that Mayor Bloomberg was ''doing a good or excellent job,'' the Daily News reported.
Lee Miringoff was the director of the poll. He is quoted as having said, "More people think the city's headed in the wrong direction than the right direction, so that is not going to do well if you're chief executive."
