It seems that Brian Kemp is really NOT the Governor-elect of Georgia

From Ralph Lopez: 

I went and did a cumulative vote percent chart on Georgia: the Y-axis is percent of the vote, the X is counties ordered by size of the total vote, small to big from left to right. 
How interesting, showing classic symptoms of fraction magic. As the county size gets bigger (greater total votes), Abrams’ percentage declines and Kemp’s increases, rather than normal statistical flat-lining, law of big numbers.  Stranger, if Abrams does well in large population urban counties like Atlanta, her share should be increasing, not decreasing.
