On election night Fox News and the Associated Press, along with a couple of other fake news outlets announced that Joe Biden had won the reliably red state of Arizona.
And they did so at, like, 7pm. Hours before the polls closed in the west!
Now the ballots are actually being counted and it looks like Trump is pulling ahead.
The Decision Desk at Fox News claimed they made the call because they did not think it was possible for President Trump to get over 40% of the remaining votes. He’s actually getting 57.9%!
The network refuses to retract the report but even liberal pollsters like Nate Silver are saying it’s time to admit a big mistake.
On his blog, he wrote: “I sure as heck don’t think the state should have been called by anyone, and I think the calls that were previously made should be retracted now.”
Of course, if the results are flipped and President Trump does take Arizona, his path to 270 relies only on winning Pennsylvania – a state the Trump campaign has already declared a victory!
The nightmare of a Joe Biden presidency may never become a reality. Thank. God.
