Muriel Bowser In A Statistical Tie With Vince Gray To Be Next DC Mayor

January 16, 2014

Gray vote total stagnant while poll indicates that Bowser has the greatest potential to grow her winning margin.

Respected pollster, GarinHartYang, just released a memo to the Bowser for Mayor campaign showing “the vast majority of DC primary voters have decided they want to elect a NEW mayor, and that Muriel Bowser, who also has significant campaign resources available—reporting more than $750k cash on hand at the last period — is the candidate who is best positioned to win the Democratic primary.”

According to Bowser For Mayor Campaign Chair and former DC Councilmember, Bill Lightfoot, “This is excellent news for the future of our city. It shows that Muriel Bowser is the only candidate to beat Vince Gray. Voters are ready to turn the page and elect Muriel as mayor. They know that she won’t leave a single resident behind as the city tackles the tough issues of education, affordable housing and jobs.”

The poll results are based on a survey among a representative sample of 502 likely Democratic primary voters conducted from January 6 to 9, 2014. The survey, which has a margin of error of ±4.4 percentage points, was conducted among landline and cell-phone respondents, with the sample based off a list of registered Democratic voters with participation in past primaries.
