A new Quinnipiac University poll gives Mayor Bloomberg high marks personally, with 64 percent of voters surveyed saying they like Mike and only 24 percent saying they don't. The mayor fared less well on specific issues like the living wage bill and his handling of Occupy Wall Street, which voters disapproved of by a margin of 51 percent to 42 percent. His job performance approval is at 49 percent, but Bloomberg is polling worst among black and Hispanic voters.
