Atlanta crime and affordable housing | Where both mayoral candidates stand

The candidates for Atlanta's next mayor spoke with 11Alive about the top two issues for residents.

ATLANTA — Andre Dickens and Felicia Moore are in a tight race to determine who will be elected as Atlanta's next mayor. The Election Day for the runoff is Nov. 30, with early voting ending Wednesday, and polls do not show either candidate with a lead. 

11Alive's SurveyUSA poll showed indicated Moore has an ever-so-slight advantage among all likely voters, 46% to 40%. Among the 59% who said they are certain to vote on or before Nov 30, Moore's lead is just 5 points. But the margin of error makes it a statistical dead-heat. 

However, another 13% said they will probably vote, and among those voters, Dickens has the nominal lead, 35% to 30%. The poll indicates if Dickens can motivate enough "probable" voters to become "certain" voters, he may emerge as Atlanta's 61st mayor. 

11Alive's Shiba Russell sat down to speak with each of them on the top two topics the poll said voters were concerned about in the city - crime and affordable housing.
