Implosion of the Democratic Party: Illinois edition

DCblogger's picture

The voters don’t like Quinn and Madigan or Emanuel. All approaching Blago approval levels.

Earlier in the month, polling for the other state’s Democratic leader, Mayor Emanuel, had him at a 37% approval rating. That’s half of what it was a year ago just after Rahm spent $11 million hedge-fund and Hollywood dollars to get elected.

Clearly Chicagoans have buyers’ remorse. Rahm’s mismanagement and bullying provoked the first teachers strike in a quarter century and have sent murder rates to levels we haven’t seen since the crack epidemic of the 90s. Last night’s midnight firing of CPS CEO JC Brizard was a not-so-subtle attempt to shift the blame and a sign of Rahm’s growing self-made troubles.
