Psychologically, I think people often are more motivated to defend what they have than to strive for more.

However, "speculate" is exactly the right word. I'll say this: according to GA's stats right now, black voters made up over 1/3 of the November 4 electorate, and only about 1/5 of the runoff electorate. It should be possible at least to sanity-check that result without relying on machine counts -- but I sure don't have the data to do it right now.
