AP Explains: The election result may be delayed. That's OK.

We may not know who won the presidential election on Tuesday night. And if so, it does not necessarily mean anything is broken, fraudulent, corrupted or wrong.

BUT DONíT NEWS ORGANIZATIONS CALL A WINNER BEFORE ALL THE VOTE IS COUNTED?

Yes, thereís never been a presidential race in history in which all votes are counted on election night. Itís just not physically possible to instantly count that many ballots ó possibly as many as 150 million on the night of Nov. 3.

Media organizations, including The Associated Press, declare winners in thousands of races on election night based on the results that are in, voter surveys and other political data.

Good, informative article.

Hoping for a major Joe landslide so that AP calls the election on the night of Nov. 3rd, and ruins little Adolf Trumpler's plans to steal our election.

6. All of the respectable MSM needs to do the same

because they won't be protected in a Trump 2nd term. The media needs to bond together and if Trump prematurely claims victory they need to call him a liar, no both sides bull shit.

8. AP was part of a consortium of MSM that discussed NOT being premature. However, FOX did

NOT participate, of course.

Premature, or rather immature ejaculation is FOX's speciality.

7. I think

all news organizations should hold off until at least Wednesday before Presidential and Senate races are called. If itís necessary wait until later in the week.
