Default MAJOR RED FLAG!!! CBS News affiliate runs election results with Obama as winner...

TWO WEEKS BEFORE THE ELECTION!!!

This isn't some prediction or the result of polling. This is a premade scrolling graphic that ran across the screen showing Obama as the winner (Complete with vote counts!!!) with 99% of Precincts reporting... TWO WEEKS BEFORE THE ELECTION!!!

Eh.. it makes sense they were getting graphics together. Somebody hit the wrong switch and put it on TV. Either way it goes, they have to have graphics ready. Now if the election results were exactly what they put up there, then somebody needs to scream foul.

They have specific data in the line. That is NOT a preparation tactic.

They had to put something in the line to test it.

The "0" and "." key is outside the 9 digit keypad. They would have had to reach all the way down with their index finger to hit the "0", and not only that but the "." key, is really cumbersum to hit with the ring finger.


Much easier to just type out a number showing the Marxist in Chief in the lead.

Sure they put in the numbers they wanted to see. But it's absurd to suggest that they were putting in the numbers of some predetermined outcome.
