Description
  • Abstract

    This data collection is the second February poll focusing on 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 Marion Barry or Maurice Turner if the general election for mayor of the District were held that day. In addition, respondents were asked if they thought Marion Barry should resign as mayor, how they felt about Barry's indictment on drug and perjury charges, which factors would influence their decision to vote for Marion Barry, and if they thought Marion Barry needed to apologize to District residents for his behavior. Background information on respondents includes political alignment, registered voter status, section and ward of residence in the District, age, education, race, sex, and income.
