From the Daily News:
The snow may have melted but the cold feelings linger: A new poll out Wednesday gives Mayor Bloomberg his lowest approval rating in eight years.
Just 39% of city voters think Bloomberg is doing a good job, while 51% don't, the Quinnipiac University poll found.
Those are the mayor's lowest numbers since July 2003, when Bloomberg raised property taxes and proposed a smoking ban.
The stumble comes after Hizzoner botched the late December blizzard that buried New York for days, stranding ambulances on unplowed streets. The mayor had to hastily fly back to the city from his Bermuda getaway to deal with the crisis.
Bloomberg's advisers had spent the previous year talking him up as a presidential candidate, but that now seems an unlikely path for him, especially with President Obama's approval rebounding to 70% in the city.
