Atlas Poll: Readers Divided on Election Day Outcome But Predict Loss Overall

October 23, 2009

With over one-hundred voters thus far, it seems Atlas readers are not sure what the outcome will be for the Brooklyn GOP after the November election, but two potential outcomes are currently leading the pack.

The two largest vote-getters are:

  1. All Losses, and Mayor Bloomberg will lose
  2. All Loses, and Mayor Bloomberg will win

Just around 20% believe that at least one Brooklyn GOP candidate will win besides the Mayor’s race.

Demonstrating readers’ lack of confidence with the current candidates, only a handful of you so far believe the party will have multiple wins besides the Mayor’s race.

If you have not voted, be sure to do so!

On the right side of the screen in the poll box. We look forward to reporting your results up until Election Day!

    1. a condition of shame, loss of reputation, or dishonour
    2. a shameful person or thing
    3. exclusion from confidence or trust

    “Bloomberg’s legacy has been most tarnished by the blatantly undemocratic maneuver he pulled on term limits. Twice, New Yorkers had voted to limit the service of local elected officials to two terms. Instead of respecting that, Bloomberg and his associates peddled the idea of overturning term limits to the editorial boards of local newspapers; pressured the heads of nonprofit organizations that rely on private donors and city funding to speak before the City Council in support of undoing term limits; and contrived to run out the clock on a referendum.

    All of this is not simply slick scheming — it is a gross abuse of power. Even Venezuela’s President Hugo Chávez conducted a plebiscite on his extended stay in power. New Yorkers were not even given that chance.”
