Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has a severe trust issue with his constituents, stemming from the late release of a video showing a white police officer shooting an unarmed black teenager to death, the Chicago Tribune reports. 

Three-quarters of the city's residents – 74 percent – told pollsters they don't believe the mayor was truthful about when and how he learned about a dashcam video showing the shooting death of Laquan McDonald or his claims that he didn't keep the video suppressed to protect his own re-election chances.

According to the poll, only 17 percent found Emanuel's claims believable, while 74 percent didn't.

Broken down by race, 83 percent of African Americans didn't believe him, 76 percent of Hispanics and 67 percent of whites.

The police shooting controversy also has hurt Emanuel's job approval, with 63 percent saying they disapprove.

A total of 59 percent said they mayor is not honest and trustworthy. Broken down by race, that included 64 percent of Hispanics, 63 percent of African Americans and 51 percent of whites.

Emanuel, a Democrat, served as President Barack Obama's first chief of staff before resigning to run for mayor of his hometown.

The poll talked to 985 registered voters from January 20 to 28, and it has a margin of error of plus-or-minus 3.2 percentage points.
