I have mentioned before that I generally don't talk about politics in public, just not my thing.

But, there was one thing that REALLY annoyed me.

All of the major networks, including CNN and FOX were declaring a winner in the Cruz v. O'Rourke with less than 20% of the total vote. They weren't making predictions, they were declaring winners.

Since when did we declare winners when all the results weren't in?

I guess since November of 2018.

Now their "winner" was the winner, but why not say it is a projection instead of declaring a winner.

If that was the case in life, then I declare the Lubbock High Westerners Champs in all sports for 2018, 2019, etc, etc.

That makes no sense, and neither does declaring political winners before it is time.
