New York, New York, a hell of a town, Barack Obama’s numbers are down

On second thought, maybe Michael Bloomberg is onto something after all. Maybe weaning New Yorkers off trans fats and high-fructose corn syrup is starting to clear their heads.


President Barack Obama’s approval rating in New York fell precipitously in the past month, according to a poll released Monday, and three-fifths of the state’s registered voters now believe the country is heading in the wrong direction.

Obama’s approval rating remains high in New York, at 56 percent, with 41 percent disapproving, according to the Siena College poll.

But the president’s approval rating was at 66 percent last month, with only 32 percent disapproval — so the change is a net 19 point decline.

Ouch. Well, as the 2012 election taught us, polls are always right. Sorry, Barry.

Speaking of dramatic reversals, Obama is now slamming Twitter. You gave him what he wanted, tweeps, and now you’re no longer useful.

Don’t let the door hit ya, @BarackObama

P.S. Oh wait, I forgot: New York is racist. That explains it.
