The resolution of the White House race between the Democratic candidate, Joe Biden, and the president, Donald Trump, hangs by the thread of only five states, and in four of them Biden has the lead in the count.
However, the results so far are still too close to know who will win, both in those states and the presidency. In addition, the Trump campaign has filed up to 10 lawsuits in four different states questioning the counts, for which the resolution of the results will be extended.
The Decisions Board of Noticias Telemundo and NBC News, our sister network, carefully analyze the data before announcing that either candidate is projected as a winner of a state. That is why Noticias Telemundo has not declared the Arizona contest as defined, as other media have done.
In Georgia and Pennsylvania, the Democrat Biden has been in the lead since the early hours of this Thursday, after tabulating mainly the votes by mail, ballots legally cast and whose counting takes longer due to the processes of inspecting them and the delays of the Postal Service in delivering them.
In this election, voting by mail and early voting broke records, and it was mostly Democratic voters who have participated in this way, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the possibility of contagion when going to a voting center. Republican voters said, for the most part, that they would participate in person on the day of the vote.
That is why specialists warned of mirages in the initial counting trends: Trump had slight advantages in states like Pennsylvania in the first hours of tabulation, when the votes cast in person were counted, but that did not mean that he would have the victory, because he still millions of ballots remained to be counted.
As of 7 a.m. EST Saturday, Biden had more than 28,800 votes ahead of Pennsylvania, which is the most coveted awardGiven that it has 20 electoral votes available, the most of the remaining states.
If Biden wins there, he will immediately be confirmed as president-elect. If Trump succeeds in that state, the race will continue to be tight for the necessary 270 votes.
In Georgia, where only a few thousand votes remain, Biden is ahead this Saturday morning by 7,248 votes, according to the latest tally update.
In addition, the counts of Arizona, North Carolina and Nevada.

In Arizona, which has 11 electoral votes, Biden had a slight advantage this Saturday morning of about 29,861 votes. Trump led North Carolina by 1.4%.
Nevada is moving forward in accounting more slowly than other key states. As of 7 a.m. ET Saturday, Biden had an advantage of about 22,657 votes.
In the Electoral College, a group of voters that determines who wins the presidency and does not always coincide with the decision of the popular vote, Biden adds 253 votes while Trump has 214. It takes 270 to win the White House.
Biden has achieved at least 74 million popular votes, a record, and Trump has made more than $ 70 million.
Since Wednesday morning there have been protests from both sides in different parts of the country. Some who demand that “every vote be counted”, as in Maricopa County in Arizona, and others, as in the city of Detroit in Michigan, ask instead for the counting to be stopped.
“Everyone should want every vote to be counted, whether they were sent by mail or cast in person. And faithfully reviewing the ballots takes time. That is evidence that there is democracy, not that there is fraud,” they said in a joint statement by Republican Clint Hickman, director of the Maricopa board of supervisors, and Democrat Steve Gallardo, part of the board.
Trump, his campaign and his family have said that he has already won in states like Pennsylvania, although this is not true, by means of e-mails to his followers or on his Twitter account. No one has actually been declared the winner there because the votes are still being counted.
The president tried to declare himself the winner since early Wednesday morning, when millions of legally cast votes had yet to be counted, and alleged, without evidence, that he considered that there had been fraud.

This year, Pennsylvania’s count has been longer than in the past, as a huge number of ballots were issued by mail. This is normal and the electoral authorities had announced in advance that this was expected.
The Postal Service has had delays in that state for weeks, so thousands of ballots that were legally cast by voters for days or weeks are still not received.
The courts then allowed ballots that arrive no later than this Friday, if they were apostilled before the afternoon of November 3, to still be counted.
Biden and Trump, for their part, have alternated between saying they are confident they will be the winners. In Trump’s case, announce lawsuits to stop the count in certain states or to demand a recount.
The president’s campaign Trump called for a recount in Wisconsin, where the projected winner is Biden, and there was asked to halt the counts of Georgia, Pennsylvania and Michigan (In this last state Biden was projected winner on Wednesday night).
The lawsuits in Georgia and Michigan were denied Thursday afternoon.

So this Thursday the nation is awaiting the count in those five states that will determine who will be president for the next four years from January, as well as what the courts say, where the result could be extended or determined.
The other races at stake
At the legislative level, Democrats managed to maintain control in the House of Representatives, although they lost several seats, and in the Senate it is still pending to know who will have a majority, although Republicans have maintained important positions that bring them closer to staying with control.
At the state level, Republican politicians were reelected in most governorships.

More than 100 million citizens voted early this year, doubling the total that did so in 2016. Millions more went to the polls on Election Day to vote in person, even amid a surge in cases in the worst pandemic in a century.
The first exit polls from NBC News and Noticias Telemundo show that the economy, the rejection of racism and COVID-19 are the main concerns of voters. The vast majority of voters also said that they made their decision long ago and only 4% said that they decided who to vote for the week before the election, which implies a decrease compared to 2016, when 13% of voters took a last minute decision.
