Oops: MSNBC Accidentally Publishes Election Results Showing Obama Win
Politico ^ | November 5, 2012 | Jason Howerton

Posted on 11/05/2012 12:51:57 PM PST by GonzoII

MSNBC apparently published a test-page for Tuesday’s election results on accident, calling the election for President Barack Obama, Politico’s Dylan Byers reports.

While the “Presidential results” show GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney winning the popular vote 55-33 percent, the chart shows President Obama winning the election with 280 electoral votes to Romney’s 257.

While MSNBC may be excited to proclaim Obama’s victory, the network may want to wait until the votes are counted.

That’s funny, but not as funny as this:

Obarrhea.... That runny and crampy feeling of anger, regret and disbelief that will hit all left loons just as zero gets up to give his pouty mouth concession speech. Haha... squirt squirt..

Rent lots of port-a-potties lefties..

I think these accidents happen every election and they always show the democrat winning when they do. Must be some sort of inside joke.

Golly, I thought it was supposed to be a horrible miscarriage when a candidate loses the popular vote but wins the electoral college...

The real numbers sure as hell better not be what they’ve “accidentally” released.

This doesn’t even make any sense. They suggested Romney won the popular vote by 22% but lost the electoral college? This had to be someone’s idea of a joke even at MSNBC.

Back in serious mode; I have been strongly thinking the same thing. It may be couched in indirect phrasing but I suspect he will send a clear signal that his supporters understand that will echo his ‘revenge’ comment.

Happens at least once every election. Always on the side of the Dems, but what does one expect? It’s MSDNC!

It wouldn’t surprise me a bit to see him drop an F bomb. You
know Biden will for sure. That’s his favorite.

We need to work up a wager on how many times he will scratch his nose, ears and/or forehead with his middle finger.

Great, now the Democrats won’t need to go vote on November 14.

I read a fairly convincing mathematical analysis of the electoral college that shows it is possible to win the electoral college with less than 28% of the popular vote...I will have to dig it up

I'm bowing out of that deal. I never did well in higher math.

Look at the voting totals. Hard to read, but the graphic shows about 19 million votes for Romney but 15 million for Obama.

So it looks like MSNBC is planning on calling the election for Obama when only about half of the vote has been tallied.

Be at ease my Friend.
That was just Chris Mathews posting it temporarily so he could get that thrill in his pants before he heads into the Men's Room.

Delusional thinking on the part of MSNBC.

It's the only way these posers can get any satisfaction, like Cinderalla's sisters test fitting the glass slipper while batting their eyes all full of hopey-changey. Reality is about to smack them upside the head.

” While MSNBC may be excited to proclaim Obama’s victory, the network may want to wait until the votes are counted. “

So maybe the votes are already counted. Soros style. Recall how they will be counted - by some Soros group off site of states - prior to states announcing.

I find it hard to think they would just (try to) run away from it all if they lose. I mean leaving behind all the FEMA camps, already up and running, and thousands of guillotines and coffins and box cars with shackles and new DHS cadets, etc

Happened last presidential election too.
Same "accident."

It's inevitable, when you have children-mentality adults running news organizations.
