Fox News insider says you’d have better odds ‘playing the Powerball’ than betting against Fox’s election projections

Former Fox News political editor Chris Stirewalt said Monday that the chances of winning the lottery sweepstakes were better than Fox News 2020 election projections being incorrect according to Breitbart News.

Stirewalt told the partisan January 6 Committee that “You’re better off to play the Powerball”  than to assume the possibility that the 2020 election projection might have been wrong on November 7, 2020.

“Our Decision Desk was the best in the business, and I was very proud to be a part of it,” Stirewalt stated. “By the time everyone was losing their minds over this call, we were … moved on to other states.”

The committee had some questions for Stirewalt, including the one that encompassed the entire hearings, questioning who won the 2020 presidental election to which Stirewalt emphatically stated, “Joseph Robinette Biden Jr., of the great state of Delaware.”

Stirewalt was the Fox News contributor in charge of predicting Arizona for President Biden, which many believe was predicted too early. Stirewalt justified his early prediction, arguing that Fox News had “a better set of data” than CNN or MSNBC.

“Our poll in Arizona was beautiful, and it was giving just what we wanted it to do and it was cooking up just right,” he added. “We knew it would be a consequential call … because it was one of five states we were watching … Trump’s chances were very small and getting smaller,” Stirewalt said.

Stirewalt claimed many at Fox News were “losing their minds” because Arizona was called early, but that his emphasis was on predicting the following state’s winner.

“We looked around the room, everybody says, ‘Yeah.’ And by the time we found out how much everybody was freaking out and losing their minds over this call, we were going to try and call the next state,” he said.
