Former Vice President Joe Biden pulled narrowly ahead of President Donald Trump in the key battleground states of Pennsylvania and Georgia on Friday, making his victory all but certain.
After initially trailing Trump by hundreds of thousands of votes during Election night counting in Pennsylvania, Biden steadily ate into Trump’s margins as more mail-in ballots are counted and put him in the lead for the first time.
With over 100,000 ballots left to be counted, Biden’s lead in Pennsylvania stands at 5,600. That number is expected to only grow after all remaining ballots are tallied.
Biden has now moved ahead of Trump in Georgia, taking a narrow lead of about 1,000 votes. There are still thousands of outstanding votes in the heavily democratic areas of Atlanta plus military ballots.
With all but 5 states called Biden now stands at 252 electoral votes to Trumps 213. Pennsylvania (20), Georgia (16), Arizona (11) and Nevada (6) are all likely to be added to his column. Trump’s lead in North Carolina (15) is unlikely to change while the state waits for the last mail-in ballots to arrive.
Trump has vowed to continue fighting and promised to file legal challenges where he claims his team has detected voting irregularities.
