The on-screen display, noticed by Vox’s Aaron Rupar, flashed on during an exchange between Shannon Bream and Bret Baier as the election returns rolled in.
It showed the results of a poll in which 98% of Georgia voters contacted by Fox News said that the importance of which party controls the Senate was a factor in their balloting, and 2% said it was not. Duh.
But it was the “SDFG SDFG SDFG SDFG SDFG SDFG SF” below the headline that sparked the intrigue.
What does it mean?

People on Twitter, including many who were pleased that Democratic challenger Raphael Warnock had defeated Republican Kelly Loeffler, and that Democrat Jon Ossoff was leading Republican David Perdue, had theories.

In my opinion, SDFG would mean “So Damn F’ing Great!” but not sure that’s what Fox meant. SF: “So Fine.”

Oh my gosh…🤣 Does anyone know what the SDFG means, though? Is it just despondent gibberish?🥳🎉

I think whoever has to make that was more frustrated with the obviousness of the question than anything…
