On Sunday I blogged about the fact that the Associated Press(AP) had not yet called a number of New York House races, despite the fact that Republicans were leading in them by margins ranging from 8.7% to 22.6%.
At that time I noted that the AP had also not called three New York House races where Democrats were leading, but it was understandable, given that the margins were 2.2%, 3.7% and 5%.
Well, it is now Thursday, November 19th. And the AP has called all three Democrat races, putting them in their “win” column.
But the five seats where Republicans are leading by margins significantly higher? Still, not one called.
What is going on over there? Are they hoping for a magic fairy to come down from Lalaland with a few hundred thousand votes?
Maybe there’s a reason for this. But I would be hard pressed to come up with it.
