A poll finds that Mayor Michael Bloomberg has emerged relatively unscathed in the public eye from his service-slashing 2011 budget.
The vote comes a day after the State Legislature took a giant leap toward passing its own budget.
Gov. David Paterson told a radio show he regrets dropping out of the governor's race months ago.
The legislature and governor are still at odds over how to balance the budget, which is now 89 days late.
Gov. David Paterson predicted that another week-long budget extension bill would be required after June 20.
