(RightWing.org) – Democratic hopeful Joe Biden and running mate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) have been claiming victory in the 2020 presidential election since November 7. As one might expect, mainstream media outlets have encouraged that claim. However, as election experts all understand, the election results won’t be official until December 14.
CNN was first to call the election at about 11:24 a.m. eastern time, followed by the three television networks, the Associated Press, and Fox News about 16 minutes later. Here’s the thing: Presidential elections aren’t final until the Electoral College meets and members cast their votes on December 14 — no matter how much the MSM claims otherwise.

Additionally, one could reasonably argue that the election results aren’t a certainty until January 6, 2021, when the House of Representatives and Senate meet in a joint session to officially count the electors’ ballots.
If that isn’t enough, there’s a remote possibility the US Supreme Court might end up deciding the vote, or handing it over to the House, depending on the outcome of the Trump campaign’s current lawsuits in various federal and state courts.
It’s time for all Americans to calm down and accept that the election’s official outcome won’t be determined for at least two more weeks.
