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?
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.
