63% of Atlantans Support $250-M Bond Project; Most Like Reed, Dislike Deal

Creative Loafing has details on a new poll that finds 63% support for the proposed, much-needed $250 million infrastructure bond package. That’s well and good. However, 43% of those polled have “very serious doubts” and 19% have “serious doubts” about the package when prompted that critics have tied it to Mayor Kasim Reed’s agenda.

OK, so the mayor seems to be unpopular, right?

Not really.

Fifty-eight percent of those polled support him, and 49% say the city is going in the right direction. With a margin of error of 4.9%, the same percentage of people could like the mayor and oppose his agenda.

Gov. Nathan Deal finds only 36% support in Atlanta, which is not terribly surprising.

    36% is a relatively good number for Deal in the city, given that the typical GOP showing in the city (for whatever race) is more akin to the temperatures we are seeing in north Georgia at lunchtime today (Friday, Feb. 20)—lots of twenties. In the US Senate race last November, for example, David Perdue only got 21% in the Fulton portion of Atlanta (a small portion of the city goes into DeKalb).
