In the June 2021 Power Poll, we asked three questions of our Power Poll Participants.
In Question #1, we asked if Mayor Lumumba should lift the mask mandate as July 4th weekend approaches. 39% of respondents said Yes, it was time to get on with business as usually, while 61% said we still haven't reached a high enough number of vaccinations in the city.
In Question #2, we asked a tough one—what's the MOST IMPORTANT step that the City could take to combat gun violence in 2021. While a few commentors noted that they thought it was a tough call to make and that more than one approach is the only answer, a plurality of 37.5% said the City should alllocate more police resources to the challenge. Second, at 21%, were those who said the City should organize and elevate community leaders to prevent violence crime.
In Question #3, we asked if our Power Poll participants thought the governor should call a special session to enact Medical Marijuana laws. 83% said yes.
