Can someone smarter than me explain to me (election)

watching news channel and they're saying certain states have been called with a winner but also says like "IN:16%"

Am I missing something? how are they calling states if that low of a percentage of votes are in?

I understand that, but when they say, on election night, that a state has been called for one candidate over the other that makes it sound official.

It’s all based on historical data and registered voters in counties

They always get it right except the times they don’t


It's based on past statistics of each precinct.***

It's quite simple; Don't watch any of the coverage, or read anything into the polls.

Looks like Biden will win in a squeaker. Trump will say he was ripped off. Biden will end up as president. Trump will create chaos until the day he dies. The next 4 years will be a mess.

The past 4 yrs indicate that a Trump victory will not be accepted by the Dems.***
