There are reports Amazon may be paring down its list of potential sites for its new headquarters. Business Insider said the company has started rejecting bids and Arlington, Texas, is out of the running.
As we've reported before, 20 cities have made Amazon's short list, including Atlanta.
In an exclusive 11Alive poll conducted by SurveyUSA, we asked whether Georgia should offer a billion dollars in incentives to lure the new headquarters with its 50,000 jobs.
The results: 62% of likely voters in the poll said we should offer incentives; 19% said we shouldn't.
Another 19% weren't sure.
We also asked if voters would prefer to see the headquarters built in or outside metro Atlanta.
66% said it should be outside metro Atlanta, including 53% of those who live in metro Atlanta and more than 70% of those living elsewhere in the state.
SurveyUSA interviewed 2,875 Georgia adults 5/10/18 through 5/15/18. For a deeper look at the results, click here.
