It’s been a long road to the Presidential Election, and at least one station appears anxious for it to be over. Phoenix CBS affiliate KPHO accidentally aired a lower-third graphic during “The People’s Court” on Friday afternoon that declared President Obama the winner (above).

The graphic, which gives Obama 43% of the vote to Governor Romney‘s 40% with 99% of precincts reporting, stayed up for 17 seconds, NewscastStudio reports.
