Rudy Down, Thompson Steady but Gains Among Republican voters

Saturday, June 23, 2007

Thirty-five percent (35%) of American voters have a favorable opinion of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg while 41% have an unfavorable opinion. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that 24% don’t know enough to have an opinion either way. The Mayor, who formally left the Republican Party last week, is viewed favorably by 32% of Republicans, 38% of Democrats, and 34% of those not affiliated with either major party. Many believe Bloomberg is considering an independent bid for the White House. A Bloomberg campaign would be a long-shot, but not necessarily an impossible task.
