Chicago’s Democrat Mayor Brandon Johnson is now experiencing some of the most abysmal polling leads to Illinois history signaling a loss of support from 72% of Chicago locals.
According to The Illinois Policy Institute, Johnson is joined at the bottom of the proverbial polling barrel by previous Mayors Lori Lightfoot and Rahm Emmanuel who both surveyed as low as 27%.
The Lincoln Survey went on to note,
“Johnson’s approval rankings on the problems were most affordable concerning criminal offense and public security, with 2 of every 3 citizens polled disapproving.
He likewise had majorities dissatisfied with his handling of real estate and homelessness along with his management of the migrant issue, with thousands dealing with a Chicago winter in heated tents.”
According to HeyJackass.com, Year-to-date there have been 576 Homicides in Chicago, of them 518 people were shot and killed. There were 10 officer-involved shootings with five fatalities. There were 15 protective shootings with 3 casualties.
The city has actually also racked up 1,099 carjackings with only 59 arrests. Trending Politics reported in August that Johnson quixotically blamed the boost in carjackings … on automobile producers in a confusing statement that made international headlines and revealed the city would look for legal action versus carmakers KIA and Hyundai for “stopping working” to avoid thefts.
Democratic Alderman Raymond Lopez informed Fox News, the relocation was a “play from a socialist playbook,” including “”Clearly, we don’t have a criminal offense issue. We have a Kia issue in the city of Chicago, according to Mayor Johnson.”
Illinois Policy Institute Marketing VP Austin Berg shared the outcomes noting, “This is one of the lowest task approval scores taped by a mayor in modern-day Chicago history. Today marks six months given that his inauguration.”

Berg reported even more that in the poll crosstabs, Johnson lost ten points with Democrat voters, 10 points with Black Citizens, 20 points with Hispanic voters, and a tremendous 37 points with moms and dads.
Johnson reportedly won 52.1% of the vote in the April 2023 election, and only 6 months into the function now surveys lower than Mayor Michael Bilandic who infamously enabled Chicago Streets to go unplowed during the 1979 Blizzard that resulted in 5 deaths and 15 injuries.
Dylan Sharkey, of the Illinois Policy Institute, told The Center Square, “Just 3 times since 1979 has a Chicago mayor’s approval rating dipped under 30% It happened to former Mayor Rahm Emanuel in 2016 following the Laquan McDonald shooting, and it happened previously this year to previous Mayor Lori Lightfoot quickly before she failed to make the mayoral overflow.”
In spite of the polling that might be finest described as catastrophic Johnson posted braggadociously to X, writing “We did everything I stated we would do.Youth tasks Support for unhoused Violence avoidance and intervention Department of the Environment Re-opening psychological health clinics Re-entry, restoration and reparations Without raising real estate tax. Thank you, Chicago.”

Department of the Environment
Re-opening mental health clinics
Re-entry, remediation and reparations
Without raising real estate tax.
Thank you, Chicago.

The survey revealed that 65% of Chicagoans feel the city is moving in the wrong direction, an increase of 6 percent since February. Rather than the earlier drive toward ‘defunding the authorities’ around 73% of respondents stated they desire more of an authorities presence in the city and 69% see crime as the most important concern. Authorities data, reported by The Daily Caller revealed criminal offense has actually increased 21% this calendar year and an unreasonable 69% considering that 2021.
