(WJLA) - With less than three months to go until the pivotal Democratic mayoral primary, incumbent Mayor Vincent Gray holds a wide lead on his opponents, according to the Washington Post.

A Washington Post poll indicates that Gray, who kicked off his re-election campaign this past weekend, carried 24 percent of the vote amongst all declared candidates for mayor of District of Columbia. His closest challenger, D.C. Councilwoman Muriel Bowser, earned 12 percent in the poll.

Beyond Bowser, both Jack Evans and Tommy Wells earned 11 percent, while Vincent Orange earned 9 percent.

In total, seven people will likely appear on the ballot against Gray on April 1, when voters in Washington take to the polls to select the Democratic candidate for mayor.

The public's perception of Gray's honesty and trustworthiness is still high, though. Despite dropping by 7 percentage points between July of 2012 and this month, 54 percent of those polls said that they don't find the mayor honest nor trustworthy.
