Phil Ting would win the San Francisco mayor’s race (based on online friends) 

There are polls about who is winning in the race to become the next mayor of San Francisco, but there is also another yardstick by which we can measure the contestants: online friends.

All of the candidates in the race to become the chief executive of San Francisco have Facebook and Twitter pages. In the lead right now would be San Francisco Assessor-Recorder Phil Ting, based on the social media pages the candidates have listed on their campaign websites.
