D.C. mayor polls: Gray maintains advantage
(Cross-posted from Mike DeBonis's blog)
Good news and bad news for Mayor Adrian M. Fenty in two new polls released Wednesday.
The heartening news: Both show Vincent Gray with a narrower lead in the mayoral race than was shown in the Washington Post poll released 10 days ago. The deflating news: Both still have Gray with a significant lead, and one shows Gray's lead growing since three weeks ago.
One, an automated telephone poll conducted from Aug. 30 to Sept. 1 by Public Policy Polling for Washington City Paper and WAMU-FM has Gray ahead of Fenty 50 percent to 39 percent among registered Democrats, with a 3.5 point error margin. The other, a live-caller poll of 492 likely Democratic primary voters conducted Tuesday by Clarus Research Group, has Gray ahead by seven points, 45 to 38, with a 4.4 point margin.
