  • AP: Bush Wins Re-election

       October 07, 2004

    The AP is reporting that Bush has won re-election:

    At this hour, President Bush has won re-election as president by a 47 percent to 43 percent margin in the popular vote nationwide. Ralph Nader has 1 percent of the vote nationwide. That's with 51 percent of the precincts reporting. Bush has won 324 electoral votes in 33 states. He is leading in 4 states for a total of 43 more electoral votes.

    Kerry has won 105 electoral votes in 8 states and the District of Columbia. He is leading in 5 states for a total of 48 more electoral votes.

    Nader has not won any state and is not currently leading in any state.

    In the 435 U.S. House races, the Republicans have won 173 seats and are leading in the races for 56 seats. The Democrats have won 145 seats and are leading in the races for 56 seats. Independent and other party candidates have won or are leading for 3 seats. If these trends continue, the Republicans will retain control of the House.

    In the 34 races for the U.S. Senate, the Republicans have won 14 seats and are leading in the races for 4 seats. The Democrats have won 13 seats and are leading in the races for 3 seats. Independent and other party candidates have won or are leading for 1 seat. If these trends continue, the Republicans will retain control of the Senate and will gain 3 seats.

    Man, I know I overslept today, but I didn't know it was by THAT much.

    Anyone have any idea what's going on? Check California Yankee for more.


    UPDATE Aww, too bad. It looks like the AP has pulled the story. The link that we have above, as well as all of the links that C. Yankee has listed, now point to a message saying that the page is "unavailable."

    UPDATE 2 Reader David alerts us that the AP has explained the story:

    Correction: President Bush Did Not Win Election on October 7
    ...
    The Associated Press tests election results about four times a week leading up to elections, especially one as crucial as a presidential election, to help TV stations and newspapers make sure they are receiving the numbers. The numbers are random with every test; if this error happened a day sooner or a day later, it could've been Senator Kerry or Ralph Nader who was declared the winner.
    ...

    Oh, and what David says about the "overslept" line is exactly right. :-)

    Great, now watch all the moonbats start with the conspiracy theories. Actually, that would be kinda funny to see.

    Calm down, it was just the IT folks at VRWC testing the Cyberfraud 2004 software that will ensure Bush wins with 99% of the vote.
