Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Democrats won't commit to releasing the unofficial results of Saturday's Nevada caucuses on the day of the vote, as they emphasize accuracy over speed in the aftermath of the chaos surrounding the Iowa caucuses.

Tom Perez, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, told The Associated Press that several factors, including early voting and potentially high turnout, could affect the tabulation and timing of results. In addition, Nevada, like Iowa, will be reporting three sets of data from the multistage caucus process.

Perez said he doesn't know when results will be released. "We're going to do our best to release results as soon as possible, but our North Star, again, is accuracy," he said late Tuesday after touring an early voting site in Las Vegas.

Wait, I thought that Nevada got rid of the Iowa App...is this because they shifted last minute or is something else going on? (serious question)

Calm down, America. If election results aren't instant, it doesn't mean they're 'rigged.'

The Nevada Democratic Party is running Saturday's caucuses, while state election officials are in charge of the South Carolina primary on Feb. 29. Nevada Democrats are trying to learn from the experience of their Iowa counterparts, but the bottom line is unavoidable: The practice of nonprofessionals administering caucuses adds another reason to question the entire caucus system, which is generally undemocratic and unrepresentative to begin with.

The other problem is our impatience to know the outcome. Regardless of who is running an election, the news media and the public should let the process play out without demanding immediate results. Spending several days to determine an election winner is a feature, not a bug, of election administration. We must all temper our expectations on election night.

Oddly enough, his supporters do.

He has the Trump strategy of saying one thing then having his mouthpieces say/do the nasty stuff.

Putin does the same.
