Joe Biden, former vice president, has collected votes all day long even in the night as calculation still going on in Pennsylvania states, racking up a significant difference among mail-in votes favored by Democratic voters.
Biden passed Trump by 917 votes
On Friday, former vice president crossed President Trump by 917 votes just after 04:30 am. Joe Biden’s stunning potential in Georgia stemmed from the massive presence from Black voters in Fulton Country and even in the suburbs near Atlanta, exhaustion with Donald Trump in Georgia’s rapidly growing suburbs, which have turned into progressively young and diverse in the previous few years.
No Democratic presidential contenders have taken the victory in that state since Clinton in 1992. Moreover, Bill Clinton closely got victory over George Bush (former President) in Georgia in part because Clinton and George Bush were having a three-way election that added Ross Perot (an independent presidential candidate).
The election was tightened intensely on Thursday night not only in Georgia state but also in Pennsylvania state, which is supposed another US state that Trump can’t bear the damage in case of being defeated.
Who is the expected winner of the race?
Now all the momentum turned in Joe Biden’s favor and also pushed him on the entrance of a serious threshold of 270 electoral votes required to become the winner of the race. Furthermore, Biden also got a significant margin among mail-in votes favored by Democratic voters.
Besides this, there is also another tight race, in two states, including Arizona and Nevada, is on the way that could affect the destiny of the election.
Thus far, Joe Biden has acquired 253 electoral votes, and on the opposite side, President Trump has 213 votes, CNN reported.
There is no way for Trump to touch 270 electoral votes without acquiring victory in Pennsylvania and Georgia. On Thursday night, President Trump effectively described that he has no intention of leaving power without fighting in case if he ends up losing the race.
