117. In the 9 years I lived in NYC and then another 8 or so I lived in Westchester County, I cannot

 

remember ANY mayor of NYC that the people there liked. I remember, being a polite kid who grew up in Texas, how shocked I was at the attitude New Yorkers had toward their mayors. And if you wanted a quiet cab ride you had to practically bribe cabbies NOT to give you an earful in your cab ride (the way my father would when he visited me in NYC).

I am not the least bit surprised that the "people who live in the city" can't stand him. They hate him the way they hated Koch, Dinkins (first black NYC mayor), and Lindsay (OMG, too WASPY). and on and on.

It's just what New Yorkers do. I would think there was something wrong with them if they didn't...
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
