Pew’s got a new poll out that spells a drastic shift in public opinion towards Michael Nutter in the last couple years. In January 2012, he enjoyed a 60% approval rating. Now, he’s at 37%. Likely culprits: Acrimony among public-sector employees, many of whom are without a contract, and the roiling schools crisis. For that, Nutter would likely argue that the city and state are more to blame than he is. After all, he’s proposed several school funding options the City Council has declined to take up. Oh, would you look at that, City Council’s approval rating has dropped as well, to 30%. Also in the poll: More depressing figures, like these.
Anyways, good morning!
