Last week we asked Borderstan.com readers to choose the biggest issue facing Washington, DC. A total of 200 readers voted and “crime” was the choice of nearly one-half (49.5%) followed by “public schools” at 22%. “High Housing Costs” and “High Tax Rates” finished a distant third and fourth, respectively. Next came “Development-Related Issues” at 4.5% followed by “Local Economy/Unemployment” and “Transportation/Metro/Parking,” each with 3%.

Here is how 200 respondents answered, “What is DC’s Biggest Issue?” in this extremely unreliable, unrepresentative and unscientific survey:

  1. Crime: 49.5% (99 votes)
  2. Public Schools: 22.0% (44 votes)
  3. High Housing Costs: 8.5% (17 votes)
  4. High Tax Rates: 6.5% (13 votes)
  5. Development-Related Issues: 4.5% (9 votes)
  6. Local Economy/Unemployment: 3.0% (6 votes)
  7. Transportation/Metro/Parking: 3.0% (6 votes)
  8. Other: 3.0% (6 votes)
