Mayor Bloomberg's poll numbers tanked after the city's plowing fiasco in December and apparently have yet to recover. According to a new Quinnipiac poll, only 39 percent of New Yorkers approve of Bloomberg's job performance. “Conventional wisdom says historically third terms haven’t been too successful,” Bloomberg said on election night, 2009. “But we’ve spent the last eight years defying conventional wisdom.” [Quinnipiac]
