If Democrats and anti-Trumpers thought that Arizona was a loss for President Donald Trump then they should rein in their horses because it looks like Trump now stands a strong chance of winning it.

According to Jeff Dufour, Editor-in-Chief of the National Journal, it would appear that an error in data feeds estimate only 86 percent of the vote has actually been counted.

“The latest plot twist comes from Arizona, which had reportedly counted 95%+ of its votes. NYT notes that “due to an error in an Edison Research data feed of results … the actual estimate is that 86% of the vote has been counted,” tweeted Dufour.

“This gives some credence to the Trump camp’s argument in a call with reporters that it expects to pull ahead in Arizona, because most of the outstanding vote is in Trump-friendly territory,” he added in a second tweet.

Does this guarantee a win for Trump? No. It’s still anyone’s game in Arizona. However, there is good news for Trump that makes it somewhat likely that he’ll win by a slim margin.

As Chris Buskirk of Ameican Greatness pointed out earlier this morning, Arizona has been pulling in a 60-40 split between Republicans and Democrats since last night. If this holds, Trump will pull Arizona by a slim margin.

“AZ early am update. Maricopa County overnight was a pickup of ~50,000 votes for Trump. Biden lead is now ~90k with ~520k ballots out there. A 60-40 Trump split of those ballots would put Trump ahead by ~10k. Trump has been winning the count 60-40 or better since late last night,” tweeted Buskirk.

I wouldn’t trust to hope at this time as anything could happen but it would appear that at least, for now, Trump still has a chip and a chair.

Earlier today it was reported that odd things were happening in Arizona. Ballots marked with sharpie pens weren’t being counted, yet voters were forced to use sharpies in order to fill out their ballots. Right now, Arizona is the wild west in terms of this election.
