LOL.... Republicans are so angry with Wasserman for calling AZ for Kelly last night

that he was forced to post a disclaimer.

Disclaimer: as has always been the case, the personal judgments offered by this account regarding election results are not official race "calls" and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Cook Political Report, NBC News or any other entity.





I've seen enough: Sen. Mark Kelly (D) wins reelection in #AZSEN, defeating Blake Masters (R).

1. It's getting to the point in this country

nobody can have an opinion unless you're a RWNJ. Next they'll want absolute loyalty to Der Fuhrer.

20. DeSantis has a shallow plot just off a road through a swamp near Apalachicola for Sen. Hawley.

The question is, will Hawley step into it while distractedly fist saluting an insurrection and NOT watching his step? Or will DeSantis have him pushed?

21. Hawley

Just tell him there's danger in the area, and point out the ditch near Apalachicola as a safe space. He'll run right into it.

4. I think it's the split ticket or mixed result in many states that is preventing them to shout fraud.

They needed some votes to count to catch up while they want others not to count.

They canít say that Kemp won fairly, but Warnock didnít if it was the same election.

7. They did in 2020.

There were plenty of claims that Biden votes were faked but down-ballot votes for Repubs on the same ballot were legitimate.

9. After saying "I've seen enough", has Wasserman ever gotten it wrong?

I've asked this two other times over the past two years, and have never gotten an answer.

11. I've seen a tweet saying he got it right about 92% of the time

and citing a race in NV that Ralston got right (assuming Wasserman didn't). I don't know enough to research the validity of that tweet. But point being, I think Wasserman is very much likely to be right.

12. I believe you're correct on that.

Wasserman's accuracy is in the high 90% but he did go against Ralston in one NV call that he got wrong, that's the one I've heard of.

Wasserman is damn good, nearly "money in the bank" good, but I don't think anyone knows NV better than Ralston.

23. He has never been wrong...and if he says Kelly wins...then Kelly wins...and Cortez Masto will win

too. And a fair number of those ballots you refer to are Culinary worker ballots and will break for the Democrats.

24. Are you referring to other comments of mine? I didn't talk about NV in this one.

The NV race was a previous race in other years. Like I said, I don't know which one that tweet was talking about but comment #13 said the same thing.

As far as the current NV race, I definitely believe CCM will pull ahead and win. It's just that we have to wait for the votes to be counted before we know for sure. Saying to wait doesn't mean I am rooting for republicans to win or that I doubt CCM's ability to win this race. Stop reading non-existing things into what I said. I am not some republican troll. But at the same time, I am trying to put out the facts as it stands now without adding too much "what I hope it is" into it.

14. It seems as though networks are fearful to make calls

after TFGís agita following Foxís call of AZ for Biden in 2020. Maybe not. Maybe there are just so many mail-in ballots now that counting takes longer than it has before. But since 2000 many election nights arenít what they used to be, 2008 and 2012 being exceptions.

16. I think for AZ, they are waiting for the 290k mail-in votes that were dropped off on election day.

It is assumed that it would lean republican but Master would need something like 70/25 to take the lead. Wasserman think it's near impossible to get that ratio so he called AZ. The networks are likely waiting for some of that votes to release later today and call it for Kelly when it shows Masters only get 60/35.
