This morning’s Washington City Paper/WAMU Kojo Nnamdi Show poll results post is phenomenally interesting for its snapshot of DC. Broad-based and far-reaching, it breaks down the results of the city-wide poll of 1,222 likely voters with a variability of +/- 2.8%. Included are issues of citywide import like open primaries, taxi and sedan service, red light and speed cameras, a new D.C. United stadium, and the various city-wide elections that are up for grabs this November.
Give it a gander, it’s worth your time to look at the politics of the district. Some highlights:
Of all the Wards, Ward 5 is most likely (26%) to tell you things have gotten significantly better since 2010. Ward 4 leads the people who said it’s going the opposite direction at 28%.
Those responding that the District should not have its own representation (just 6% of respondents) come from the city’s toniest wards: Ward 3 (40%) and Ward 6 (29%).
Wards 4, 5 and 6 are in a near-tie for the most civically active, measured by neighborhood meeting attendance. Ward 3 trails that category by a large margin.
It’s not often we get such a good window into the politics of the District. Relish this one. Nice job, WCP and Kojo!
