Pushing the tight race narrative to get more attention and generate more ad revenue?

Or push their desired winner's supporters to the polls by saying the opposition has the advantage?

Or some other conspiracy theory I can't fathom?

Both sides looking at "their" guy and going... "I can't believe we did this, surely everyone will see through the shittiness."

Fox apparently switched NH to a battleground bringing Clinton under 270, but the sure haven't shilled for Trump as much as they usually do for the Rep candidate.

That's because Trump is not actually a GOP candidate worth shilling for!

Sure, he is the GOP candidate, and Fox does love themselves a GOP candidate. Just not him. Or at least not as much as other GOP candidates that they have shilled for in the past. Other than Hannity - if there is an (R) after the guys name, then you can expect a Hannity endorsement.

I thought it was just one of the NH "districts" that they put up as "Toss Up" for 2 delegates, thus dropping HRC to 268. NH is actually worth 3, if I am not mistaken, so I think HRC is lock for one of them.

It certainly is interesting seeing the maps change so close to the election. I figured it would have been the other way around, with the map constantly changing and then starting to form its final picture the closer we got. 2016 is one weird election year, for sure.

NH doesn't award its districts separately, think you're thinking of Maine.

Ah, yes, that's correct. My bad. Thanks for the clarification.

At the top of the hour we will explore the real story behind the electoral college outlook and you will not believe what we have discovered. It may just save your children's lives.

Personally, I think it's a combination of wanting to scare folks -- on both sides -- into voting. "It's not won yet, folks -- don't forget to vote!"

Also, I don't think Fox wants Trump to win. I don't. Think about it; if Trump wins, the GOP would also take the House and the Senate. If *that* happened, I bet you Fox would take a YUGE hit in viewership.

Anyway, it's all madness.
