In what seems to have been the longest Election Night ever, Joe Biden has just taken the lead in Pennsylvania, where 95% of the vote count has been reported. Earlier Biden also took the lead in Georgia!
So what happens now? Donald Trump cannot make it to 270 electoral votes without Pennsylvania’s 20 electoral votes, so his chances of securing reelection will hinge on developments in the states.
Right now, Biden has 253 electoral votes. If he wins Pennsylvania, he’s over the 270 electoral vote threshold.
Apart from all this, five more states — Alaska, Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, and North Carolina – are still yet to be projected. Trump is leading in Alaska and North Carolina, while Biden is leading in Arizona, Georgia, and Nevada.
