A poll of D.C. residents finds that many in the district were not too pleased with Mayor Adrian Fenty's handling of the recent snowstorm.
WASHINGTON (AP) A poll of D.C. voters finds 64 percent say Mayor Adrian Fenty did "only a fair" job or a "poor" job handling the recent snow storm.
The poll by Washington-based Clarus Research Group released Monday found 33 percent of respondents believed Fenty did an "excellent" or "good" job when asked about his handling of "the snow situation and removal."
The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 5 percentage points. It was conducted Feb. 21 and surveyed 441 voters randomly selected by telephone.
The poll found Fenty's job approval rating held steady through the storm, however. A November poll by Clarus found 49 percent of respondents disapproved of the job Fenty is doing. The current poll found 48 percent of respondents disapproved of the job he is doing.
Clarus paid for the poll.
