Google Glitch Prematurely Showed Primary Results

Google Glitch Prematurely Showed Primary Results

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.

    Poll stats are rigged! Gingrich first, Santorum second and Paul third?
    A legit poll for NH would have Ron Paul first by far. I’m tired of the corruption in politics of this country.

  • Reg

    Many of the members of BBad are predicting a win by Ron Paul!

  • John Ryan

    If we did an independant poll combining all eligible voters both online and over the phone, without a chance of rigging, and Id bet Ron Paul would win.

    “eligible voters” don’t give the same results as “likely voters” does. The Paulbots do have deep support for RP, but it’s not as broad as they’d like you to think it is. There are many young people that are eligible but don’t bother to exercise their right to vote. 18-25 is the most fickle group by far and seniors vote in droves in the general election. I don’t see RP being the guy – the MSM and the Dumbocrats want a Romney/Obama matchup b/c they think (rightly so) that it would be the most favorable matchup for the President – he’d be running against Gordon Gecko….at least that’s how they will portray Mitt Romney, and Romney is unable to run against Obamacare. This will be the most devicive General Election in history, set up to be that way by all the OWS, the crony capitalism, and class warfare from the Obama administration.

    The conspiracy theory candidate, Ron Paul, (and I do believe that there are secret organizations out there) has a majority of conspiracy theorists who see conspiracy in EVERYTHING. I mean come on John Lynch II, Reg and John Ryan? You’re SO slanted in your view that you embarrass the rest of us with your over-zealousness to see Conspiracy. I can see that there are hidden dynamics that go on all the time in politics, banking, government, military, etc. But, it doesn’t mean that EVERY single thing in the world related to Ron Paul is rigged when he doesn’t win. He has YET to show the kind of leadership that the “middle” requires before they’ll vote for him. And, worse, he has so many supporter “skeletons” in his closet that it makes his other would-be followers leery of him.

      @curtis rasmussen: What are you talking about? Have you researched Ron Paul AT ALL? While I agree with the comment that a loss for Ron Paul does not necessarily mean a rigged system, the fact that you are calling HIM a conspiracy theorist instead of attributing this to SOME (I stress SOME, not ALL, not even MOST) of his supporters tells me that you have not followed him, read his books, or even listened to the debates. He is NOT a 911 “Truther” as many have been saying. In fact, he voted to go after Al-Queda after the attack on the World Trade Center. He has also voted consistently with his views and his campaign promised for all 10 TERMS that he has been in Congress. Please explain how he could show any more leadership than the middle requires? Also, what are these “skeletons” that you speak of? If you are talking about the 20-year-old newsletters that the media just keeps bringing up then you are jumping to conclusions MUCH faster than any conspiracy theorist I have ever met. 10 terms in Congress and the ONLY thing the media can find to harp on is a newsletter written by someone else, using his name. Hardly skeletons. Lets try taking money from the bailouts for personal gain, sexually assaulting multiple women, voting with the hard LEFT and calling oneself a Republican, or the best one, being elected President without ever proving American citizenship. BTW, the Supreme Court has agreed to hear that case, so please don’t respond by calling me a “conspiracy theorist”. I read. Sorry if that offends you.

    As if the conservative Supreme Court seeing the case gives any legitimacy to the case. *Snort.
