Nolte: Fox News Retracts False House Race Projection — 8 Days Later!

By

TRANSCRIPT:

The Fox News Decision Desk can project Democrats will retain control of the House of Representatives and expand their majority by at least five seats. That’s a major boost for Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who has pledged to roll back much of President Trump’s first term agenda if he loses reelection. … There have been projections that Democrats could pick up as many as fifteen seats.

Of course, nothing of the kind happened. The House counts are a little different everywhere, but it looks like Democrats may have somewhere between 6 and 10 House seats, and could lose as many as 15.

By the way, did you notice how I couched and caveated the above sentence? Did you notice how I informed you that the “counts are a little different everywhere” and used words like “looks” and phrases like “as many”?
