MSNBC Has to Scroll to Find Biden in NH Results

February 11, 2020

MSNBC political correspondent Steve Kornacki on Tuesday had to scroll to find Joe Biden's name on his New Hampshire results chart, prompting anchor Brian Williams to note that the former vice president is near the bottom.

"It's never good when Kornacki has to scroll up to find you parked next to Tulsi Gabbard. That's where Joe Biden is so far," Williams said during a discussion of the New Hampshire Democratic primary.

With most polling places still not reporting in, Kornacki analyzed the results from multiple New Hampshire cities, including Dover and Concord and found Biden far behind Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) and others. After analyzing the top four candidates in Dover, he said, "I got to scroll down to get you to Joe Biden to see Biden at 5 [percent]."

Kornacki then analyzed the results in New Hampshire's capital city, Concord, which showed Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D., Minn.) in first place with 32 percent of the vote. Biden was in fifth place again, with 8 percent of the vote.

On CNN, anchor John King had more bad news for Biden: He was not running first or second anywhere in the state except Millsfield, where he was second. And the only other place where he was better than fourth was Dixville, where he tied for third with every candidate who had zero votes.

Biden left New Hampshire early on Tuesday and landed in South Carolina shortly after the polls closed.
