Sixty-three percent of registered Chicago voters gave Mayor Rahm Emanuel a negative approval rating in a new Chicago Tribune poll released Monday.
In the poll of 985 respondents, Emanuel garnered a 27 percent approval rating in the wake of November's release of the Laquan McDonald shooting video. By comparison, Emanuel had a 52 percent approval rating back in March 2015.
Although there have been calls for the mayor to step down over his handling of the McDonald case, only 41 percent of survey respondents think Emanuel should resign. Fifty-one percent said he should not resign.
When it comes to state legislation the would legalize the recall of Chicago's mayor, 55 percent of respondents said they support such a proposal, while 36 percent oppose it.
Among other key findings from the poll, 59 percent of survey respondents said they do not consider Emanuel to be honest and trustworthy, and 68 percent said the city's effort to withhold the McDonald shooting video before a judge ordered its release was unjustified.
The poll, conducted by Research America Inc. from January 20 through January 28, has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.2 percentage points.
