A majority of Nashville residents think the city is making progress, according to a new Vanderbilt Poll.

68 percent of Nashville residents say the city’s economy is “very good” or “good” and 80 percent of locals say they enjoy or love living in Nashville.

However, 47% of respondents say the city’s rapid growth and changes over the last few years have negatively impacted their day-to-day life.

According to the poll, the response to this question is often influenced by the respondent’s length of residence in the city, and whether or not the city is on the right track.

The majority of city residents (62%) who have lived in the city less than five years think the city is moving in the right direction, while 52 percent of city residents who have been living in the city for more than five years think it is moving in the wrong direction.

According to the survey, 59% of respondents said reducing traffic was their top priority. Seventy-one percent of residents said crime was their top concern.

“The poll reveals a broad bipartisan agreement on what local leaders should focus on and how the city should move forward,” said Josh Clinton, co-director of the Vanderbilt Poll and Vanderbilt Professor of Political Science. “We see a relatively united city, which is in stark contrast to the political divisions and polarization we see across much of the nation.”
