Despite a setback in his bid to bring jobs and the "New Jersey" Jets to the West Side, Mayor Michael Bloomberg has enjoyed a 21 point swing in a recent NY1/Newsday poll since March when he trailed democrat Fernando Ferrer in the race for mayor. Mayor Mike is now 14 points ahead of the leading democratic challenger 46 percent to 39 percent.

Bloomberg also has seen a massive improvement in his job approval ratings, which were in the 30s earlier in the year. The latest NY1/Newsday poll has his approval ratings at the highest of his term at 57 percent to 33 percent.
