SF-Mayor (2007): Time Magazine Clocks Newsom at 80%

Posted by Bob Brigham

From the San Francisco Examiner:

Time puts Newsom's approval rating at 80 percent, which Newsom political consultant Eric Jaye said is "in the ballpark."

"It may be a few points higher or lower," said Jaye. "He is enjoying an extraordinary level of popular support given how contentious San Francisco politics are."

During his brief tenure in office Newsom has been the subject of glowing pieces in GQ, Esquire, Harper's Bazaar, and the New Yorker. Time also singled out Newsom for its 2004 "People Who Mattered" feature.

The first paragraph says he's looking good for re-election in 2007, the last paragraph reminds us why he might be looking good in 2008.

Doesn't he mean out of the ballpark? Those are stratospheric numbers, no?
