So, it seems my earlier predictions where wrong by a bit. The Dems have taken the house, and they’re doing better in the Senate than I would have thought. Stacie Abrams does not seem to have won the governor’s race, but has come very close, which is quite remarkable for a Democrat in GA. Voter turnout was way, way higher too, in contrast, as of 6:40 AM the day after the totals are
In contract, in 2014 the results were
Georgia gubernatorial election, 2014
Republican Nathan Deal – 1,345,237 – 52.75%
Democratic Jason Carter – 1,144,794 – 44.89%
Libertarian Andrew Hunt – 60,185 2.36%
A difference of 1.4 million votes in only four years which is rather staggering.
