Poll: Bloomberg’s approval rating plunges over snow slowdown

A poll taken after the storm showed Bloomberg’s approval rating had plunged from 50% to 37% and only one in five New Yorkers think he handled it well.

At a press conference to address the city response to snow expected to fall today, Bloomberg stood with two embattled underlings – Deputy Mayor Stephen Goldsmith and Sanitation Commissioner John Doherty.

Not present was Joe Bruno, head of the Office of Emergency Management, said to be on thin ice for not mobilizing fast enough.
