Google Glitch Prematurely Showed Primary Results

Google’s premature New Hampshire primary numbers.

Does Google know something that the American public does not? Or did the search engine simply botch an election results test-run?

According to National Journal, an apparent Google glitch displayed the “results” of the New Hampshire primary early this morning, hours before polls close.

Sourced to The Associated Press and displayed alongside searches for GOP hopefuls Mitt Romney and Buddy Roemer, the “results” showed front-runner Romney coming in sixth place behind Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Ron Paul, Jon Huntsman and Michele Bachmann, who ended her campaign.

The apparent error was reportedly fixed at about 7:05 a.m.
