Major network to call election prematurely


In 2000, major news networks, such as NBC, called the election early for Al Gore. In the end, George Bush actually received the required votes in the electoral college, and became president.

Will a major network call the election prematurely?

This question resolves positively if any of the following major news networks call the 2020 presidential election for a candidate who does not eventually win the election (as defined by whoever wins at least 270 votes in the electoral college, or a majority in the House of Representatives in case no candidate receives a majority in the electoral college).

  • Fox News
  • Associated Press
  • NBC
  • ABC
  • CBS
  • PBS
  • CNN
