Second poll paints an even rosier picture for Atlanta bond referendum and Kasim Reed | Political Insider blog

This morning, we pointed you to a modest, 400-respondent poll by Democratic strategist Cabral Franklin, which showed Atlanta voters already well-inclined (63 percent) to support a $250 million infrastructure bond referendum.

The vote is March 17, but the campaign hasn’t even begun.

The same poll placed Mayor Kasim Reed’s favorability rating at a respectable 58 percent.

But certain people are eager to let us know that the situation is actually rosier than that. We’ve been handed a poll commissioned by Citizens for Better Infrastructure, the group that will be running the bond campaign. It was conducted by Anzalone Liszt Grove Research, the firm used both by Reed and President Barack Obama.

The survey sample is larger, and reports that 79 percent of Atlanta voters are inclined to support the bond referendum. Moreover, it puts Reed’s job approval rating at a heftier 72 percent.
