Poll Shows Strong Support for Downtown Atlanta Casino

New, 59 comments

If a recent online poll is any indication, public support is strong for a full-blown casino operation in downtown Atlanta — nowhere specifically, just somewhere downtown. A poll on the Atlanta Business Chronicle's homepage, which is sponsored by Mercer University and warns that it's not a "scientific sampling," asks simply, "Do you support building a casino in downtown Atlanta?" and gives a few details in terms of projected jobs and such. As of Sunday night, a strong majority (62 percent) of nearly 2,400 voters were all for rolling the dice downtown, though some commenters fear such a "thug zone" would be a hotbed of corruption.
