Newark Mayor Has “Stellar” Rating, According to Poll

No surprise — Newark Mayor Cory Booker’s image has gotten a major boost from his daring rescue of a neighbor from her burning home.

A Fairleigh Dickinson-PublicMind poll out Friday shows Booker with a 47 percent favorability rating. Just 6 percent rated him unfavorably, and others hadn’t heard of him.

Pollsters say that makes for a “stellar” 8-to-1 favorability rating, which they say is rare for any mayor.

That’s an increase over the 39 percent who had a favorable view of Booker in a January poll.

The mayor garnered nationwide headlines in April after rushing into a burning building to save a woman.

The telephone poll of 797 voters was conducted April 30 through May 6 and has an error margin of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
