WSB/AJC poll: Norwood takes late lead in Atlanta mayor’s race

The race for Atlanta mayor enters its final weekend with new polling that shows one candidate emerging with a lead days before Tuesday’s runoff vote.

A Channel 2 Action News/Atlanta Journal-Constitution poll shows City Councilwoman Mary Norwood at 51.3 percent and Councilwoman Keisha Lance Bottoms at 45.1 percent. Norwood’s lead is larger than the margin of error of 4.3 percent.

Only 3.6 percent of respondents polled said they were undecided. The poll, conducted by Landmark Communications on Wednesday and Thursday, suggests unaligned voters have made their choice in recent days.
