Mayor Vincent Gray has garnered the approval of just 34 percent of voters polled.
D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray is closing out the year with a 34 percent approval rating -- according to a new poll from Clarus Research Group. Gray's disapproval rating has jumped from 40 percent in March to 53 percent this month.
Ron Faucheux, president of the Research Group, says stories about cronyism and investigations involving Gray and several council members are contributing to the negative views of the mayor.
"You've got a cloud of uneasiness hanging over D.C. politics right now and it's holding down his numbers and it's also holding down the numbers of the city council," says Faucheux.
30 percent of those polled gave the council a positive approval rating, while 55 percent disapproved of the council.
The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percent.
