  • Abstract

    This data collection centers on issues regarding District of Columbia's mayor Marion Barry. Respondents were asked if they thought Marion Barry should run for re-election, for whom they would vote if the mayoral primary were held that day, toward which candidate they were leaning, who was their second choice, and whether they would vote for Walter E. Fauntroy or Maurice Turner if the general election for mayor were held that day. Background information on respondents includes political alignment, registered voter status, section and ward of residence in the District, age, education, race, sex, and income.
