Biden, it will be recalled, has already amassed 264 electors, according to the Fox News network and the AP news agency, and therefore lacks only 6 to reach a number that gives victory in the election – 270. Other networks in the US, which unlike Fox News and AP have not yet Biden won In Arizona, Placing the Democratic candidate on 253 electors, and thus at a slightly greater distance from the finish line; But a victory in Pennsylvania, for its 20 electors, would give him the victory one way or another.

“I think we can definitely know the outcome in Pennsylvania by the end of the day,” said Local Secretary of State Kathy Bokever. This means that the result there can be known tonight according to Israel time.

Another country that is very close to ending its count is Georgia, Where after counting 98% of the vote, Trump’s advantage shrank to just 0.3%. Georgia has 16 electors, and if Biden succeeds in revolutionizing it, then according to Fox News and AP, it will reach far more than the 270 electors needed to win the election, and according to a network like CNN, it will reach 269 – distance A touch of victory. Since there are only 61,000 votes left that have not been counted in Georgia, it is estimated that the end result there will be very close, so even when the winner is announced – there is a high probability that the loser will appeal and ask for a recount.

In Arizona, 375,000 votes remain, with Biden leading by 68,000 votes. Most of the remaining votes count come from Maricopa County, the most populous area in Arizona. If Trump revolutionizes this country, he will significantly increase his chances of winning the election, but his path to 270 electors will still be longer than Biden’s.

In Nevada, Which divides 6 electors, so according to “Fox” and the AP will be enough to bring Biden from 264 to 270 electors, tonight Biden increased its advantage from 0.6% to 0.9%. So far, 88% of the votes have been counted. In the Biden campaign tonight they said they still believe he will win in Nevada, and even U.S. commentators familiar with the nature of the counties from which the remaining votes are expected to come are expressing a growing belief that Nevada will turn blue.

In the afternoon, Fox News reported that as in Michigan, Pennsylvania and other states, in Nevada, too, the Trump campaign intends to petition against the count. Meanwhile, legal action of this kind is not beneficial to Trump on the ground. Tonight a Michigan court rejected the petition seeking to stop the vote count in the state. U.S. television networks already announced Biden as the winner there yesterday, by a margin of 2.8 percent of the vote. In Georgia, too, Biden’s petition against the counting in one of the counties was denied.

Each of the 50 states in the United States (as well as Washington, D.C.) is assigned a certain number of electors, that is, representatives in that body, according to its population size (e.g., California with a population of 55, and sparse Alaska with only 3). All of its electorate.Because there are a total of 538 electors, whoever gets 270 (i.e. more than half) – wins.In the case of a draw 269-269 the decision goes to the House of Representatives, and it is he who decides who will be the president.

By the way, in the votes of the voters themselves, Biden leads by a gap of almost 4 million votes over Donald Trump. He also set a record when he became the presidential candidate with the highest number of votes ever: so far he has garnered more than 72 million and easily. The previous record was set by Barack Obama in 2008, when he received 69.4 million votes. Baiden helped break the record for the fact that the turnout was particularly high this year – the highest estimate since 1908.
