Steve Kornacki Projected Thanksgiving Dessert Trends With The Same Composure As He Did The Election

The fan favorite "chart throb" is back!!!

Steve Kornacki, MSNBC's resident election statistics expert and "chart throb," according to fans on Twitter, made an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show to talk all about his famed election coverage...and to project Thanksgiving dessert trends for the upcoming holiday. Although he said the results were too close to call during the segment, it looked like pumpkin pie, pecan pie, and sweet potato pie were some of the most popular choices.

"We just had a close presidential election," he said: "That had nothing on this." With the same composure he used throughout his five-day election coverage, Steve ran through each state's dessert preference with sweet potato pie taking the lead in many southeast states like Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and Florida.

"This is a very competitive election, Kelly," Steve continued while Kelly was laughing hysterically in studio:

It's not just sweet potato pie, take a look here in Pennsylvania, this was heavily contested pumpkin pie. We've got just about all the votes in, pumpkin pie is going to win Pennsylvania. Pumpkin pie also got New York, it got some other big states. Also Nevada, very slow count in Nevada.

Other regions like the "prairie and plain" states, as Steve referenced, were voting heavily toward brownies. Some areas even leaned toward options like pumpkin cheesecake, apple pie, and pecan pie.

"We may have an election, Kelly, where no dessert gets 270 electoral votes and it goes to the House of Representatives," he explained, "I don't know what they're going to decide, but we're going to overtime when it comes to the battle for America's favorite Thanksgiving dessert." If that doesn't just say it all.
