In August of 2011, 53% of Chicago voters thought Emanuel was doing a good or excellent job and 31% thought he was doing just a fair or poor job.

Today, Emanuel’s job performance rating is evenly divided, with negative evaluations of his job performance have jumped by 16 points: 47% excellent/good to 47% just fair/poor, according to the union survey.

The union and its president Karen Lewis have clashed with Emanuel with his push for longer-class days and other issues.

The union cited no pollster for its current poll but noted that Lake Research Partners conducted the the August 1-7, 2011 of registered Chicago voters.
