Residents of DC Call for Mayor’s Resignation

The residents of the nation’s capitol are not pleased with Governor Gray and according to a recent poll, the majority believe he should resign. The latest Washington Post Poll reveals that the campaign corruption scandal has taken a heavy toll on the governor’s approval rating. Governor Gray is unpopular across all demographics in the city, and according to the recent poll fifty-four percent of D.C. residents say Gray should resign. The Washington Post continues:
"Gray has said the federal investigation into his campaign has not affected how his administration is running the District, but only three in 10 approve of the job he is doing as mayor. Forty-four percent say the city would be better off if he left office. 
"The mayor’s political supporters and other city leaders have rallied behind him, saying calls for his resignation are premature because he has not been accused of wrongdoing. But only 22 percent of residents surveyed say they view Gray as honest and trustworthy.”
