For the record I did not vote for the racist supreme.

— State Sen. Vincent Fort, 6.1 percent;

— Councilman Kwanza Hall, 5.2 percent;

— Former Fulton County Commission chairman John Eaves, 3.6 percent;

— and “undecided” at 17.4 percent.

Would Aman get the endorsements of Reed and Franklin? That could be a bump in his favor.

Tough to say but Keisha might have closer ties to Reed.

But it will be especially interesting if we end up with something like a Norwood and Aman runoff. If Reed and others end up endorsing Aman that would probably get him the win.

I'm assuming nearly all the candidates will stay in until the election. Not much reason to drop out since they've paid their fees and gotten their campaigns organized.

True. That is why I think who gets in the runoff will be the interesting part. Doubt anyone will get the 50% needed to avoid the runoff.

I will be surprised if Norwood doesn't make it into the runoff but I will also be surprised if she wins the runoff.

I actually feel like Norwood is the ONLY candidate that has ANY chance of getting to the 50% plus one (simple majority) to avoid a run off here in the Peach State. True, it is NOT PROBABLE, but she is far and away the most likely candidate to make it.

Agreed she is the most likely to get the 50% but I don't think it is likely given she has lost points since the last polling & people are going away from "undecided". She had the name recognition coming into it but I think people are finding other appealing things about the other candidates as they learn more.

Feels like maybe a Norwood/Bottoms runoff. Mary doesn't win that if last election is any indication.

Franklin isn't going to endorse a white candidate. Reed would and it is why he has a large segment of critics. Bottoms and Caesar Mitchell are tied to Mitzi Bickers and when that whole story comes out not sure how anyone could vote for either of them.
