Washington Post Mayor Barry Poll, January 1990 Version 1

DOI

This survey was conducted following the arrest of District of Columbia mayor Marion Barry on drug charges. Respondents were asked if they had read or heard anything about the arrest, if they thought Barry should resign, if federal investigators would have tried harder or not so hard to arrest Barry had he been white, and if they thought Barry was indeed using drugs on the night in question. Respondents were also asked for whom they would vote if the mayoral primary were held that day, toward which candidate they were leaning, whether they would vote for Jesse Jackson if he were a candidate, and whether they would vote for Jesse Jackson or Maurice Turner if the mayoral election were held that day. Background information on respondents includes political alignment, registered voter status, age, race, sex, and income.
