SurveyUSA has some ghastly approval numbers for Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels as he gears up for a run for a third term this year. Only 28% of Seattle residents approve of the job he's doing, while 61% disapprove.
Often, SurveyUSA's approval numbers seem to come down a bit harder on politicians than other polling firms (here's one example of that). However, the poll doesn't just show bad numbers for Nickels. It also shows a bad trend. A month earlier, SurveyUSA pegged his approval at 34% and his disapproval at 54%.
The question is whether Nickels, who's known nationally as a leader on environmental issues, will actually face a formidable challenger. The named being mentioned most often right now is developer Greg Smith, setting up the possibility for a Greg v. Greg dual.
