What’s in a Thanks?

So this NY1 poll released last night at least begins to answer our questions about how the mayor’s gentle treatment of Con Ed’s leadership after the blackout would affect his popularity.

Despite disapproval of the mayor’s handling of the blackout by a 2-1 margin — and in sharp contrast with the hammering he’s taken in our comments section since his “thanks” to CEO Kevin Burke — Bloomberg’s overall approval ratings remained nearly unchanged from last month, registering at 58-29 among residents and 60-28 among registered voters.
