    Mayor Michael Bloomberg certainly has no reason to smile.

    A new poll says 52 percent of New York City residents believe Mayor Michael Bloomberg is doing a good job.
    That's his lowest Marist Poll approval rating in nearly four years and a 7-point drop since November.

    The poll of 827 registered city voters was conducted this week. It also found that more people disapprove of how Bloomberg is handling the economic crisis than approve.
    Bloomberg has enjoyed record popularity. But his numbers have slipped since his bid last fall to change term limits law.
    The billionaire businessman has said his financial expertise makes him an ideal candidate for a third term during the economic meltdown.
    The poll's margin of error is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
