Nate Silver Says All Calls That Biden Took Arizona In Election ‘Should Be Retracted’

Published

Nate Silver, a polling expert and the founder of FiveThirtyEight, claims that the calls made in the media that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden took Arizona need to be retracted.

Silver stated that he believes the former vice president is going to end up winning the state, but that several mainstream media outlets called the state for him far too prematurely.

“I don’t know, I guess I’d say that Biden will win Arizona if you forced me to pick, but 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,” he wrote Wednesday evening.

Fox News was the first outlet to call the state for Biden, sending shock waves through the Trump campaign. While the campaign publicly rebuked the network with Jason Miller, a campaign adviser, demanding the network retract the decision, President Trump telephoned Rupert Murdoch, the owner of Fox News.

In response, Fox News put Arnon Mishkin, director of Fox’s decision desk, on-air to explain why they called the state for Biden on Tuesday night.

“We made it after basically a half-hour of debating is it time yet because it’s been clear for a while that the former vice president is in the lead in Arizona and was most likely to win the state,” he explained. “It has been in the category that we call ‘knowable, but not callable’ for about an hour. We finally called it right now. Yes, there are some outstanding votes in Arizona. Most of them are coming from Maricopa [County], where Biden is currently in a very strong position.”

The Associated Press followed Fox News’ lead on this and ended up calling Arizona for Biden early Wednesday morning, which is the first time this state has flipped blue in a presidential election since Bill Clinton back in 1996.

Mike Brest, a contributor with Washington Examiner noted in his report that, “Both outlets have the same Electoral College map — Biden with 264 votes and Trump with 213. The remaining undecided states for the two outlets are Alaska, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Georgia, and North Carolina. According to Fox News and the Associated Press, Biden would reach the necessary 270 Electoral College votes to win the election if he won any of the outstanding states other than Alaska, which is considered unlikely.”

“Other media outlets like CNN, NBC News, and CBS haven’t called Arizona for either candidate. Arizona and its 11 Electoral College votes are the only difference between the two factions of media outlets, meaning they have Biden at 253 electoral votes and Trump still at 213. Trump has a much easier path to 270 Electoral College votes if he’s able to pull off a victory in Arizona,” he added.

Trump’s campaign has already filed lawsuits in the states of Pennsylvania, Georgia, and Michigan, while also having plans for a recount in the state of Wisconsin.

In other words, this mess is far, far from over. Will we ever know who actually, legitimately won this election?

AOC Strikes Back At Manchin For Criticizing Her, Says He’s Diminishing ‘Seriousness Of’ My ‘Policy Work’

Published

The Democratic Party is experiencing a lot of in-fighting between the hardcore socialist wing and the more traditionally center-left establishment, a battle that is clearly seen by the tiff between Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Joe Manchin. Manchin recently slammed AOC, stating that she spends most of her time on Twitter rather than being active in Congress. This comment didn’t sit well with the congresswoman who is lashing out in retaliation against Manchin for his comment, accusing him of “diminishing the seriousness” of her “policy work.” “I find it amusing when politicians try to diminish the seriousness of our policy work, movement organizing & grassroots fundraising to ‘she just tweets,’ as though ‘serious’ politics is only done by begging corporate CEOs for money through wax-sealed envelopes delivered by raven,” AOC posted on Twitter. https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1333958991613923331 via Daily Wire: Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet came in response to a comment Manchin made in response to her trolling him on social media. “I guess she put the dagger stare on me,” Manchin told The New York Times. “I don’t know the young lady — I really don’t. I never met her. I’m understanding she’s not that active with her bills or in committee. She’s more active on Twitter than anything else.” The report noted that Manchin’s words constituted “a sharp insult” because in the U.S. Senate “legislative prowess is prized.” According to Congress.gov, Ocasio-Cortez has not introduced a single bill as the primary sponsor that has become law. In fact, the furthest any of her bills have made it is to Floor Consideration and that was just one bill. She has cosponsored 11 bills that have become law. Manchin, a centrist Democrat, also conducted an interview with Fox News in which he ripped AOC and her buddies. “They’ll have to answer to the public,” Manchin told…

The NY Times has managed to get a lot of things wrong over the years that President Trump has been in office. How many times does this publication need to have its credibility shot all to pieces before folks stop reading it? President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani is currently denying a report published by the New York Times that suggests he once discussed a preemptive pardon as recently as last week. “#FakeNews NYT lies again,” he posted on Twitter. via Newsmax: “Never had the discussion they falsely attribute to an anonymous source,” Giuliani said. “Hard to keep up with all their lies.” Giuliani, who has not been charged with any crime, has drawn scrutiny for his dealings in Ukraine on behalf of President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani has come out and denied allegations made in a recent New York Times report that he discussed a pardon with the commander-in-chief. Giuliani’s lawyer, Robert Costello, told the Times that Giuliani is not concerned about the investigation, “because he didn’t do anything wrong, and that’s been our position from Day 1.” Mainstream media news outlets have been biased against the president for a long, long time. Since he first announced his bid for the White House. They recognize his power and influence over regular Americans. His ability to relate to the common man and to actually do what he says he’s going to do frightens liberals. Trump stands in direct opposition to their goal of transforming our country into a socialist nightmare. Is it any wonder they’d start targeting those who have helped him in his crusade to put America first?
