From the NY Times:
A narrow majority of New York City voters believe that Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg has lost his focus midway through his third term, according to a poll released Wednesday morning by Quinnipiac University.
...the survey suggests that whatever bounce Mr. Bloomberg enjoyed after what voters considered his strong performance during Tropical Storm Irene has receded. Instead, the mayor’s numbers are back to where they had been earlier this year, with residents saying that they approved of his performance, 47 to 42 percent, and his policies, 48 percent to 45 percent.
Voters also say, 52 to 41 percent, that Mr. Bloomberg has lost his focus; in July, those numbers were reversed, with voters saying, 49 to 43 percent, that he had kept his focus. One thing that has remained consistent for much of Mr. Bloomberg’s 10-year tenure, though, is the fact that New Yorkers like him as a person, 60 to 25 percent.
