That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it.
The results are inaccurate and often so premature as to be absolutely useless. Oh, it gives the countless talking heads something easy to discuss, but come on.
There is no way this premature "results reporting" doesn't effect voter turnout.
If you have worked a full day, and you are on your way to the voting booths, and you hear that the race is 73% in favor of the guy you are opposed to...why wouldn't you think, "Oh, what's the use?"
Because perhaps you don't see the little number on the top of the screen that says 0% results in.
That's right. As I write this, MSNBC is reporting preliminary results with -- statistically speaking -- ZERO PERCENT OF VOTES COUNTED.
I find this practice at best shameful and at worst?
