Rahm Emanuel starts mayoral tenure with strong approval ratings: Anzalone poll

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--Mayor-elect Rahm Emanuel, sworn-in on May 16, starts his tenure with high approval ratings, according to a poll conducted by Anzalone Liszt Research for Teamsters' Joint Council 25.

I did not see the entire poll; I was sent a copy of a polling memo prepared for the Teamsters, who backed Emanuel during the mayoral campaign. A PDF of polling memo is here. ALR_POLLING_SUMMARY_--_TEAMSTERS_JOINT_COUNCIL_25_POST_ELECTION_ASSESSMENT_POLL_MAY_2011.pdf

Excerpt from memo....

􀂾 Strong leader 75% Describes Well / 13% Does NOT Describe
