Among White voters, 35 percent of White women and 27 percent of White men voted for Jones.
The poll results led to a social media meme-fest thanking black women for delivering the election to Jones.
But not everyone was on the #blackgirlmagic bandwagon.
It wasn’t long ago that Atlanta’s Mayor-elect Keisha Lance Bottoms declared victory in part thanks to black girl magic.
“For all the little girls out there, who need somebody to believe that you are better than your circumstances, I️ want you all to remember that black girl magic is real…” said Lance Bottoms addressing a crowd of supporters.
Lance Bottoms was the only black woman on the ballot for mayor and she earned the highest number of votes in the general election.
Despite low voter turnout, Lance Bottoms won the runoff by a slim 759 votes. Her opponent, Mary Norwood requested a recount. The recount takes place on Dec. 14, but experts have said the results are unlikely to change the outcome of the election.
