MISSION LOCAL (SAN FRANCISCO) -- “This is a pretty big shift,” confirms San Francisco State Political Science Professor Jason McDaniel. “Yesterday Breed improved by 0.02 percent. Today it’s by 0.31 percent. That’s 10 times better.”
But, McDaniel continued, Breed needs to not just catch up but likely build a lead if she hopes to wrest the race away from Leno. After today, a shade under 80,000 votes remain to be counted. Of those, 14,000 are provisional ballots. And those, McDaniel says, will likely resemble the election-day votes and skew heavily toward Jane Kim, with her second-place votes going largely to Leno.
