Rahm Emanuel's poll rating turns negative

Crain's Chicago Business reports:
Burdened by a wave of murders, dissension over proposed school closings and perhaps his own hard-ball image, Mayor Rahm Emanuel's job-approval rating has taken a big hit in recent months, according to the new Crain's/Ipsos Illinois Poll.
There's more:
Overall, according to the survey of 600 voting-age Illinois residents, 50 percent say they at least lean toward disapproval of his performance as mayor, to only 19 percent who somewhat or strongly approve, or lean toward approval. That's a margin of 31 percentage points.
We are pretty sure that in Red state America : Rahm will not poll much better.
