As I predicted, there were not enough Dems for Ossoff to win in the first round

I think I summarized my thoughts on Georgia’s sixth congressional district well in my Heart of Atlanta post.
The sixth congressional district:

Left: this Tuesday’s results (credit: NYTimes)
Center: Swing between the 2016 and 2012 presidential election results (credit: DDHQ)
Right: 2016 Republican primary results (blue=Trump, green=Rubio; credit: Ryne Rohla)

Bullshit candidates are excluded from all charts, for obvious reasons.

There were somewhat more Dems in this district than I thought, though. Certainly, many only became so due to Trump’s campaign run. Attendance for Tuesday’s special election was well above expectations, and even higher than in the 2016 presidential primary.
