Mayor Bloomberg overturned results of two voter referendums when he asked the City Council to re-write the term limits law in 2008.

That paved the way for his re-election.

The survey, however, found 73-percent of New Yorkers questioned said they want the measure brought back, and they'll get their chance to do it in the Fall.

A commission whose members were appointed by the mayor voted to put the issue of term limits on the November second ballot.
