Joe Biden Is One State Away From Defeating Trump; See How The Numbers Stand At The Moment



Just In: Biden Leads with 223 electoral votes, Trump has145

Democrat Joe Biden is one state away from presidential victory after winning Michigan about placing him six electoral votes away from the needed 270.

President Donald Trump has claimed that there is elctoral malpractices in the ongoing election and made it clear he would not accept the reported results, issuing unprecedented complaints of fraud.

Democrat Joe Biden took a huge step Wednesday to capturing the White House, with wins in Michigan and Wisconsin bringing him close to a majority, but President Donald Trump responded with fury as his campaign sued to suspend vote counting.


In press conferences on Thursday morning, Biden told reporters his team believes they are the winners, meanwhile Trump’s camp have claimed the Democrats are “cheating” in Pennsylvania. Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has expressed confidence in the US’s “great democracy”.

By flipping the northern battlegrounds of Michigan and Wisconsin, Biden reached 264 electoral votes against 214 so far for Trump. By adding the six of Nevada, where he is narrowly ahead, or the larger prizes of hard-fought Georgia or Pennsylvania, Biden would hit the magic number of 270 needed to win the White House.

In stark contrast to Trump’s increasingly heated rhetoric about being cheated, Biden sought to project calm, reaching out to a nation torn by four years of polarizing leadership and traumatized by the Covid-19 pandemic, with new daily infections Wednesday close to hitting 100,000 for the first time.


“I know how deep and hard the opposing views are in our country on so many things,” Biden, 77, said.
