Bloomberg Leads 2009 Race

New Yorkers didn’t like the way Mike Bloomberg handled the school bus fiasco and snowstorm parking controversy, but they don’t really hold any of it against him, according to a new Quinnipiac poll.

Also — and I’m warning you ahead of time that this is kind of a silly exercise — the poll has numbers on a fantasy field of 2009 mayoral candidates. Bloomberg wins.

The next mayoral election will be held in about 3 years. Who would you like to see elected Mayor in the year 2009?
