Dewey defeats Truman 2010?
From Bob Powers at the Boston Globe, regarding the little oopsie I tweaked them for earlier:
[Associated Press] was testing an election data feed to its Massachusetts clients.
During corresponding tests at our end, the feed of AP's hypothetical test
data was inadvertently posted for a few minutes on a single subsection page
within our site. As soon as the error was discovered, it was removed. We
regret the mishap.
Boston.com briefly put up this map of the final results of today's election -- some 8 hours before polls closed!
As you can see, over 2 million people voted, with Coakley eking out a 50-49 victory.
The map was fully interactive, so you could roll over and get town-by-town results -- above we show Coakley taking Cohasset 56-43.
