Mary Norwood has a strong lead over her opponents in the race to be Atlanta's next Mayor according to a new poll conducted by Lake Research Partners. The poll surveyed 400 likely voters on February 3 to 5.

Drawing on every demographic group and area of the city, Norwood's base of support is both wide and deep, and she is the best known member of the Atlanta City Council. "Mary Norwood has more support than all the other candidates combined. She is supported by a broad coalition made up of white and African-American voters all over the city. Norwood has 39% of the vote, followed by Reed at 9%, Mitchell at 7%, and Spikes at 1%," says David Mermin, a partner with Lake Research.

"Mary Norwood currently has the highest name recognition and favorability of any tested candidate. Seventy percent of voters have an opinion of Mary Norwood, and 61% have a favorable opinion of her. No other candidate is known by more than 30% of the voters. Norwood's favorability is high in every region of the city and with both men and women."

Norwood says, "I am gratified by these results. They show that Atlantans appreciate that I've been in their neighborhoods year after year, not just at election time. It shows that they hunger for change. They want their city to work for them again. I am the candidate of change."
