Early analysis of last weeks Atlanta’s mayoral race found that white voters outnumbered black voters.  An analysis by veteran Democratic analyst Chris Huttman found that 49% of the votes cast were from whites 46% blacks and his information did not include that part of Atlanta in DeKalb county that is majority white.  The top two candidates  Keisha Lance Bottoms and Mary Norwood will face a run-off next month on December 5 and this race is gaining national attention because of the possibility that Atlanta could elect its first white mayor in 44 years.
