Professor McDaniel Analyzes Election Results in San Francisco

Wednesday, November 07, 2018
MISSION LOCAL (SAN FRANCISCO) -- Haney trounced Johnson and Trauss by an eye-opening margin (much more on that later). There are 139,000 ballots left to count and, perhaps 10,000 to go in District 4 — but the lead for Mar “looks very solid to me,” notes SFSU Political Science Professor Jason McDaniel. In a crowded field, he continues, Mar “benefitted from the ranked-choice voting transfers.” So far, he’s pulled down more No. 2 votes from the candidate running a 1-2 campaign with Ho than she has.
