Democratic candidate Joe Biden has gradually moved closer to victory in the US presidential election on the night from Tuesday to Wednesday. Counting is still in progress in six states – five of which can be decisive for the final result.
With 253 electors in his camp, compared to the 213 of the incumbent President Donald Trump, Biden needs one or two more states to reach the required number of 270 electors to secure the majority in the 538-member Electoral College. set.
States still counting (number of electors and current forecast in brackets)
- Pennsylvania (20; nek-aan)
- Georgia (16; nek-aan)
- Arizona (11; nek-aan)
- North Carolina (15; leaning towards Trump)
- Nevada (6; leaning towards Biden)
- Alaska (3; safe from Trump)
President Trump must win both Pennsylvania and Georgia to maintain a path to profit. From that vital starting point, a combination of victories in Nevada and Arizona, or either of those two states plus North Carolina, would take him back to the Oval Office in January.
Biden envisions more possible paths. If he wins in Pennsylvania, the battle is over. This also applies to a profit in a combination of two of the other states where the counts are still running (with the exception of Alaska: that state can no longer escape Trump).
Although minor updates trickled in from the states during the night, a decision was not forthcoming.
It will probably take a while before the winner is known. Georgia and Arizona are expected to publish new interim results later on Thursday morning and afternoon. In Nevada, an update is expected in the afternoon at the earliest.
In states where the margin of victory may be very small, such as Pennsylvania, recounts could take place. Counting there can also take until Friday or Saturday without such further delay.
Unrest in the US appears to be increasing
The unrest about the absence of the final result seems to be growing. Demonstrators took to the streets in various places in the US and arrests were reported. This happened in New York and Washington, among others, but also in the swing states of Michigan and Minnesota.
In several states, the National Guard has been put on alert and entrepreneurs are slamming the windows of their shops.
The protests are taking place on both sides of the political spectrum. Supporters of President Trump reiterate his baseless claim that the Democrats are trying to “steal” the election and demand that the counting stop. Left-wing protesters are urging every vote to be counted.
