D.C. Poll: What are your answers?

The Post today releases some of the results from a poll it did in the city this past week (full results). Responses showed that support for Mayor Adrian M. Fenty has plummeted in the city, particularly among black voters, and that he is not in a strong position in his campaign for re-election.

Take some of the poll's questions yourself below or leave your thoughts in the comments.

(Note: Results from online polls are for entertainment purposes only and don't have any of the scientific rigor of the work of Jennifer Agiesta and Jon Cohen, The Post's polling team.)

According to the article, the full results of the poll can be found online. One of the hottest topics in DC today, same-sex marriage, was the subject of one of the poll questions. So why no results on this topic???

You screwed up the Fenty approval question by offering "Somewhat approve" twice, and "Somewhat disapprove" not at all. Or did the Post editorial board intervene again and edit another blog?

Anyway, I'm not convinced Gray would be that much different from Fenty. He's a charisma-less insider with no vision or interesting views. Gray isn't petulant or super-secretive, sure, but he's not the answer that people are looking for.

20009matt, thanks for spotting the error, I've corrected it and reset the results.

MrDarwin, this was a pretty extensive poll, so we'll be doing multiple stories out of it and releasing the results as we go. The same-sex marriage data will be released later this week.

Thanks for coming by the blog.

Is there a draft Kwame Brown committee, YET???....Now that is the one I would mostly strongly vote for; I like Gray, I just think he is a great Chairman and with Brown as Mayor, it will be the working partnership DC needs.

I'm still awaiting something...anything that shows proof that Kwame Brown is still a Council Member. Vincent Gray is more than capable to serve as Mayor. I'm just waiting for the Post to derail his effort.
