Wither the Mary Norwood Campaign?

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Mary Norwood has a commanding lead in the polls throughout her mayoral candidacy only to see it evaporate at the last second.

Well sorry but we’re getting an encore presentation of the 2009 Atlanta mayoral race. (Even better, she’s poised to head to a runoff with Mayor Reed the Second!)

The latest WSB Channel 2/AJC/Landmark Communications poll finds Norwood just within a statistical tie with Keisha Lance Bottoms: 22.1% to 19.6% respectively with a 3.6% margin of error. 

Early last week, Norwood had 28% of the vote to Bottoms’ 12%. 

I realize I’ve sounded like I’m partaking in a Norwood Campaign Deathwatch the past few days and with that in mind I should disclose: I’m a little disappointed Kwanza Hall is second to last.
