Virtually every outlet called Montana a “test” for Trump. The day after the Republican won, the media changed its mind.
The morning after Republican Greg Gianforte’s special election win for Montana’s at-large congressional seat, the media were quick to discount the victory as an isolated incident. The Associated Press’s headline blared: “Was Montana’s wild House race a Trump test? Not so much.”
Whether Montana was a test for President Trump or not is hard to gauge, but what’s not is the media’s universal acknowledgement in the lead-up to Election Day that Montana absolutely was a test. Don’t take NTK’s word for it – see below for a few of the key stories written prior to polls closing:
