This special topic poll, which is part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicit public opinion on the presidency and on a range of other political and social issues, asked respondents living in the District of Columbia questions regarding their approval or disapproval of the way District officials, such as District Mayor Anthony Williams, District Council Chairman Linda W. Cropp, and the District City Council, have handled efforts to bring a major league baseball team to Washington, DC. This special topic poll is related to the WASHINGTON POST METRO DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA BASEBALL POLL, NOVEMBER 2004 (ICPSR 4143). Background information includes location of residency within Washington, DC (e.g., Northwest), voter registration status, last grade of school completed, age, race, Hispanic origin, gender, and whether the respondent is a fan of professional baseball.
