D.C.'s Democratic primary is just days away, and the dust is still settling over a major legal development that indirectly implicated incumbent Mayor Vincent Gray in a campaign corruption scheme from four years ago. The Washington City Paper and The Kojo Nnamdi Show commissioned a recent poll to study the race and other major issues in local Washington. City Paper editor Mike Madden joins Kojo to explore what the results mean about the city's evolving identity.

We explore what this means for the evolving public health debate surrounding e-cigarettes.
