Atlanta mayor: which candidate is leading in web search?

Atlanta will have a new mayor-elect after votes are counted Tuesday. If the result was based on web search, it would be a close race indeed.

A check of Google Trends for Atlanta searchers the last seven days shows nearly identical search results for Mary Norwood and Keisha Lance Bottoms, who are in the runoff to replace Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed.
