20/20 Hindsight - Is this vision?

A long time ago(in 2002) Mayor Jennings endorsed George Pataki for Governor of New York. The first Quinnipiac poll after that endorsement showed Pataki with a 70% approval rating.. The numbers don’t look quite so good these days. Can you really blame Mayor Jennings? So what if it meant he was betraying his party back in 2002, he was attaching himself to a winner. How could he have foreseen this? Ah, the fickle public. Politics would be a lot easier without those creatures.

From the Q-poll. Do you approve or disapprove of the way George Pataki is handling his job as Governor?

Feb 10, 2005 Approve 34% Disapprove 49%

Feb 27, 2002 Approve 70% Disapprove 18%
