Oops: NBC Accidentally Publishes Election Results Showing Obama Win
MSNBC* apparently published a test-page for Tuesday’s election results by 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 55-43 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.
*Update (4:18 p.m. ET): Dylan Byers of Politico issued the following correction to his article: “An earlier version of this post attributed the maps to MSNBC, because NBCNews pages are currently hosted on MSNBC.com. The map belongs to NBC, not MSNBC.”
