Well, in their defense -- google is NOT the agency or government counting the votes -- they are merely a media consolidator, and in a few cases, they
might have a staff member or intern working on creating a News Feed.
So in this case -- Google has as much "invested" in covering elections as a higher tier Blog -- which isn't much.
If this were the elections commission it might mean something. A news agency, is might mean a tiny bit. But in this case, it's probably somebody's
app probably had a bug and this was the result.
>>> After all, they are scraping news feeds -- and if it said 100% -- it might have been a feed that incorrectly terminated. That would mean those
were the results as of the time when the feed went sideways.... or it could be a hack.
It might be a tiny bit messed up if those voting ratios were wrong....
>> Overall -- let's keep this in perspective: there is already MASSIVE election fraud as a matter of course, and anyone voting on an electronic
voting machine might as well be putting quarters in a slot machine -- if you got your actual vote recorded, then the outcome probably didn't matter,
or the most sold out guy was in the bag.
>> Google isn't even part of this equation.
