Where are the fucking NUMBERS/PERCENTAGES? .. on races "too close to call"???????

This is maddening. It's not like the M$M don't have numbers/percentages, they do
and are fucking hiding them behind non-stop yammering, just saying "those races are
too close to call"..

and they have the audacity to call themselves "journalists".

3. The initial "results" are by exit polling

 

No numbers yet.

8. Hardly

 

that's why it's so maddening. when polls close, there have always been numbers/percentages to
show exactly where things stand so far. which is esp. important if it's 'too close to call'

But numbers are coming in now, so it's all good.

7. "Too early to call" means they HAVE numbers/%s or they couldn't say that

 

I see they are coming in now, so there's that.
