The poll is set at 500 registered Atlanta voters. However, there was an survey taking place and it conducted that 20% of Atlanta voters pick undecided. Matthew Tower Jr., Opinion Savvy Managing Partner said, “The undecided factor is enormous for an election just one week away, and there were significant difference between candidate support between the two nights of polling”. Both candidates performed this past week on Monday and Sunday.
