CNN is very disappointed, because they have projected that the Georgia election will go to a runoff.

As of this moment:
Ossoff: 88,562 votes
Top five Republicans: 88,562 votes

Here’s CNN earlier hoping that Trump would be disgraced by a vote for the Democrat Ossoff:

Sorry leeberals, you just couldn’t do it, even with $8 million of donations from Hollywood liberals trying to overturn a Georgia election….
Even though all the Trump candidates FAILED badly, Trump is declaring victory!!
Despite major outside money, FAKE media support and eleven Republican candidates, BIG "R" win with runoff in Georgia. Glad to be of help!

You do you, buddy.
So here’s the thing – the media MADE IT A VICTORY for Trump because they made the narrative up, and it failed. The narrative was that if Jon Ossoff got 50%, it would be a huge defeat for Trump. Well he didn’t get it. So even though Trump’s candidates lost, and badly, it’s the media framing of the election that allows him to proclaim victory. So that’s fun.
