WASHINGTON–Mayor-elect Rahm Emanuel, sworn-in on May 16, starts his tenure with high approval ratings, according to a poll conducted by Anzalone Liszt Research for Teamsters’ Joint Council 25.
I did not see the entire poll; I was sent a copy of a polling memo prepared for the Teamsters, who backed Emanuel during the mayoral campaign. A PDF of polling memo is here.
