With just a few hours after the polling closed in multiple states, there is still no clear winner of the 2020 elections. However, social media has chosen their victor of the election night and it's CNN's Chief National Correspondent John King. Multiple people took to social media on Tuesday night, November 3, to note how exceptionally adept King is at his job, working with the election screen on live television. 

There were several others who pointed out how "neutral and unflustered" King, the anchor of CNN's roundtable political discussion program Inside Politics, was during his election votes presentation. One user wrote: "John King. A broadcasting masterclass on @CNN Compelling, neutral, informative, reassuring, unflustered. Excellent in particular on demographic changes in the US which in itself is fascinating." Another added: "How much time does John King spend practicing that touch screen in the four years between presidential election nights? This is his Olympics." A third wrote: "John King is out here breaking down how a particular block on a street in Fushaloosa County voted in the 86 midterms. Dude is beasting on the map." 



 



 



 

Another user opined that King was so good at his job that he should be given an Emmy for it: "Say what you want about CNN, but this is fucking incredible TV. Give John King an Emmy." A fifth Twitter user wrote: "John King is crushing that interactive map on CNN Homie so smooth with the touch screen." One user called the television presenter a "phenomenon": "This guy John King is a phenomenon! He hasn't taken a breath...his depth of knowledge and speed of delivery makes it so hard to go to bed...I'm afraid he'd see me leaving! I need to get him in for one of our Multidisciplinary Team Meetings and let him loose on a CT Scan or two!"



 

There were some who wanted King to be president instead of Trump or Biden: "Can't CNN's John King be President? @iainmartin1 says that his election coverage for the network is television wonder to behold, classic showmanship." Another wrote: "Regardless of your political affiliation, one thing we can agree on is John King isn’t a man, he’s a damn machine. His memory bank and mastery of the touchscreen is remarkable." One added: "Once again I am dazzled by John [email protected] on these nights and the way he rattles through votes and swings and totals and predictions. He is like Peter Snow crossed with Gamesmaster. #USElections2020."
