Poll: Atlanta voters blame ‘everyone’ for snow traffic

February 1, 2014

A majority of voters in Atlanta are blaming both city and state elected leaders for widespread traffic jams that resulted after a rare Southern snowstorm, according to a new poll released on Friday.

Atlanta highways were gridlocked for several days this week, despite the city only receiving approximately two inches of snow.

Officials have blamed the traffic on businesses and schools all sending people home as the snow began to fall, which they say made it difficult to treat the roads for ice.

Cable television pundits have debated whether blame for the snowstorm traffic should be placed on Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed (D), Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal (R) or some combination after reports emerged of drivers being stuck on Atlanta highways overnight.

Atlanta polling firm The Hicks Evaluation Group found that 50 percent of voters in the Atlanta metro area blamed “everyone” for the snow-related traffic.

The poll found 15 percent of Atlanta voters placed blame mostly on Deal, who faces an election challenge this year from the son of former President Jimmy Carter, Georgia state Sen. Jason Carter (D).
