Default voters ? we don't need no stinkin voters...

MSNBC Puts Florida Governor Race Vote-Total Graphic Onscreen A Wee Bit Early

https://deadline.com/2018/11/msnbc-g...ce-1202496555/

It’s the kind of goof that the folks who scream about “fake news” likely will scream about. MSNBC this evening briefly put a graphic onscreen that showed “vote counts” for the Florida gubernatorial race — you know, the one being held tomorrow.

“Quick clarification here,” a rather embarrassed All In host Chris Hayes told viewers. “Just want to say, earlier this hour, uh, we showed a graphic of the Florida gubernatorial race. May have caught your eye because our system had inadvertently populated some test numbers. Obviously, we do not yet have any vote totals here, the night before the election. That was a misfire. Don’t worry. I was pretty confused when I saw it up there, to see it myself.”

And, of course, MSNBC had Democrat Andrew Gillum leading the GOP’s Ron DeSantis by six-tenths of a percentage point with 99% of the ballots counted.

It’s going to be a long day and night in America — and, to a lesser extent, around the world — on Tuesday, so stick with Deadline for coverage of the key national races along with what’s going on here in California.

That is, except while you’re out casting your vote in one on the most important midterm elections in recent memory.

Well, in this case I think it's just a matter of them making mock-ups of what tonight's graphics are going to look like for final approval before they go live. There's a lot that goes into making polished graphics, attention to detail counts. If they just sorta threw them together they would look amateurish. This gives the producers and other execs a chance to make any final suggestions. And naturally their mock-ups are going to have the Democrat winning, because REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

The nasty Dem candidate here in Ga lost, but won't concede. My prediction is she will stir shit until no one can stand it.
