The Austin Monitor asked residents to rate the worst things about living in Austin, and the answers may surprise you.

From June 3 to June 5, Public Policy Polling called about 600 Austin voters and, according to the Austin Monitor, to gage the population’s thoughts on a few important matters about living in the city.

The worst things about living in Austin included transportation; housing; something else, or not sure; standard of living; jobs and the economy; and the natural surroundings. An overwhelming 51 percent of residents polled said that transportation was the absolute worst thing, while 20 percent considered housing to be the most ridiculous.

Next, the company asked if residents were pleased with Mayor Adler’s job performance. Again, 51 percent approved of his track record, 28 percent disapproved, and 20 percent were not quite sure.

Finally, residents were asked if they approved or disapproved of the Austin City Council’s performance so far, as well. These were mixed results with 40 percent approving, 43 percent disapproving, and 17 percent unsure.

Do you agree with what the majority chose for each question?
