Lightfoot in a panic after her mayoral campaign got this dose of bad news

It really shouldn’t come as any surprise considering the state of her city.

Crime is rampant, businesses are leaving, and there’s no objective reason to argue for the Chicago mayor’s reelection.

Now, Lori Lightfoot is in a panic after her mayoral campaign got this dose of bad news.

Path to victory is looking complicated

Chicago mayor Lori Lightfoot is seeking another term but her path to victory is looking more and more complicated.

Local outlets The Daily Line and Crain’s Chicago Business have released polling of the race and the results were eye-opening.

Among the crowded eight-candidate field running to be mayor, Lightfoot isn’t faring so well.

According to the poll, Lightfoot was in a distant fourth place with only 11 percent of the vote.

That’s not where popular incumbents tend to find themselves.

Other candidates Jesus “Chuy” Garcia and Brandon Johnson had 25 percent of the vote each while Paul Vallas received 15 percent.

The survey polled more than 1,700 Chicago residents from a variety of sources and the margin of error was plus-or-minus three percent.

On Lightfoot’s watch crime in the Windy City has skyrocketed to levels that are out of control.

Julio Rosas of Townhall chronicled over the summer, “I finished conducting an interview with Democratic Chicago Alderman Raymond Lopez around 9:15 A.M. on Friday when I saw the news that a Chicago police officer had been shot in the Near West Side while on duty. The sun had been up for only a few hours. The anticipated deadly Fourth of July weekend had already seen five people shot, two of them dead, in the Loop. Now, an officer was being taken to the hospital.”

Later that day, Rosas wrote, “At one particular scene, where one man was shot on Friday in West Englewood, I met Shaneeka. Shaneeka was wearing an orange CeaseFire t-shirt, and arrived to find out what occurred because she said she knew the man who was shot. Last she heard about his condition, he was breathing in the ambulance.

‘This violence has got to stop,’ Shaneeka told me. ‘I’m very worried about what’s going to happen because there’s a lot of shooting that’s going on in Englewood, period. There’s a lot of black men being targeted, period. I’m tired.’”

It really is that simple.

Lightfoot hasn’t been able to make the residents of her city feel safe and secure and her dogmatic anti-gun, pro-crime policies have led to further decay of an already troubled city since her election in 2019.

If the voters throw her out she has no one to blame but herself, and if the citizens decide to go in a different direction at the ballot box it could very well be a welcome development.
