According to a poll recently conducted for the Tribune and WGN, the ongoing troubles in Mayor Richard Daley's administration appear to be catching up with him. While it may seem like only yesterday when almost three quarters of respondents approved of the mayor's job performance, the number now stands at just 53%. Which, obviously, has to sting. The article mentions several potential rivals in the 2007 election, but also notes "the list of possible Daley opponents could grow if a perception takes root that the mayor has become beatable." In other words, if you've got political aspirations, now's the time to start fertilizing those perceptions.
