In the city, 62% said they supported retaining the the suburbs, 54 % supported the laws...Maurice Carroll, the director of the polling institute, said the poll suggested that...Bruno might have trouble maintaining support even among his fellow Republicans for his proposal to phase out most rent portections this year...Officials with tenants groups among their supporters seized upon the poll results to argue that Mr.Bruno's position was becoming increasingly untenable."
