Mayor Fenty on Post poll: 'I haven't had a chance to read it'
Mayor Adrian M. Fenty (D) said Thursday that he still has not read The Washington Post poll published Sunday. The poll shows a dramatic slide in his popularity in the past two years, notably among African Americans.
During his weekly appearance on NBC4's "Connecting with the Mayor" segment in the morning, Fenty deflected reporter Joe Krebs questions about the poll. "I think you're referring to The Washington Post poll," Fenty said after Krebs quoted the poll's findings. "I haven't had a chance to read it. I will...This week has been busy with the snow and everything else. I just haven't gotten to it."
Krebs asked what Fenty's reaction would be once he read it and saw the "turnaround."
Fenty said he does not wait for polls to test public sentiment. He said he "tries to stay engaged with residents" and is out talking to them every day.
