Version V1

This special topic poll, conducted August 26-29, 2002, was undertaken to assess opinions about current events in Washington, DC. Those polled were registered Democrats residing in Washington, DC. Respondents were asked about their likelihood of voting in the Democratic primary election for mayor, for whom they planned to vote, whether they knew if Mayor Anthony Williams' or Willie Wilson's name would be printed on the ballot, and whether they approved of the way that Williams was handling his job as mayor. Respondents were also asked to give their impressions of former Mayor Marion Barry, Williams, and Wilson, and to comment on whether the fact that Anthony Williams' name would not be printed on the Democratic primary ballot would make them more or less likely to vote for him, whether Williams' petition problems were a reason they might decide to vote for another candidate, whether they agreed with the statement that Mayor Williams was not doing enough to help lower-income city residents, whether they voted in the last Democratic mayoral primary in 1998, for whom they voted in the 1998 primary, and whether they knew the name of the school, church, or other place where people on their block voted in an election. Background information on respondents includes education, age, race, gender, and in which section of Washington, DC, the respondent lived.
