Georgia is among the states wanting to land Amazon’s second headquarters, which could employ 50,000 people and change the economy of the city it chooses.
And Georgia residents appear eager for Amazon’s HQ2, with most of those surveyed for an Atlanta Journal-Constitution poll saying Georgia should pursue the internet retail company — even at a high cost. Such incentives could be worth more than $1 billion.
That’s just one of the key findings in our poll taken as this year’s legislative session gets underway. Georgians also talked about improving education, Medicaid expansion and some controversial issues that have residents divided.

What’s next: On Sunday at myAJC.com and in Monday’s print edition of the AJC, we’ll have poll results on how Georgians feel about the Republican tax cut plan.
In case you missed it: On Friday, the AJC released the first results in the poll, which examined President Donald Trump’s approval ratings in Georgia. Our survey found that 6 in 10 registered voters disapprove of his performance in office. That’s a decline from an AJC poll taken a year ago shortly before Trump took office.
