TABLES TURNED AS TRUMP VOTERS START TO WORRY

Written by on November 5, 2020

THE SHORT STORY FROM THE FIELD OF CONTEST OF THE US ELECTION 2020 IS WE STILL DON’T KNOW WHO HAS WON THE PRESIDENCY.

WHILE THERE HAVE BEEN NO MAJOR SHIFTS OVERNIGHT, THE COUNT HAS BEEN CONTINUING IN SIX STATES THAT CAN SWING THE OUTCOME. A PATHWAY FOR JOE BIDEN IS BECOMING CLEARER BUT IT COULD STILL GO TO EITHER CANDIDATE.

BIDEN CURRENTLY HAS 243 ELECTORAL COLLEGE VOTES, AND TRUMP 214. THEY NEED 270 TO WIN THE WHITE HOUSE.

JOE BIDEN IS NOW PROJECTED TO WIN IN MICHIGAN – ONE OF THE TRADITIONALLY DEMOCRATIC STATES HILLARY CLINTON LOST IN 2016

IN GEORGIA, OFFICIALS SAID THEY WOULD KEEP COUNTING ALL NIGHT UNTIL ALL THE BALLOTS ARE TALLIED. BUT AS OF 04:45 GMT, THERE WERE STILL ABOUT 90,000 TO COUNT. TRUMP’S LEAD IS SLOWLY DWINDLING – DOWN TO 28,000 NOW

IN NEVADA, THE RACE IS ON A KNIFE-EDGE. BIDEN’S LEAD IS JUST 7,647. OFFICIALS ON WEDNESDAY SAID THAT THE NEXT RESULTS WOULD BE POSTED ON THURSDAY AT 17:00 GMT (09:00 LOCAL TIME)

ARIZONA SAYS MORE VOTES ARE COMING AT 06:00 GMT – BUT IT IS NOT CLEAR WHEN PROJECTIONS WILL BE POSSIBLE

OUR PARTNERS, REUTERS, HAVE STILL NOT PROJECTED WISCONSIN – BIDEN LEADS CURRENTLY BY 20,510 VOTES

TRUMP’S SIGNIFICANT LEAD IN PENNSYLVANIA HAS NARROWED. WITH 90% OF BALLOTS COUNTED AT 05:45 GMT (23:30 WEDNESDAY LOCAL TIME) TRUMP WAS AHEAD BY 164,414 VOTES. LATE ON WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON TRUMP HELD A LEAD OF 379,639 VOTES

AND IN NORTH CAROLINA, WHERE 96% OF THE VOTES HAVE BEEN COUNTED, TRUMP HAS A LEAD OF 76,737

TRUMP’S CAMPAIGN LAUNCHED A LEGAL CHALLENGE IN GEORGIA, MAKING IT THE FOURTH STATE WHERE HIS TEAM ALLEGE IRREGULARITIES

THERE HAVE BEEN PROTESTS BY BOTH CAMPS. IN DETROIT, MICHIGAN AND IN PHILADELPHIA, PENNSLYVANIA, DEMOCRATS GATHERED AT VOTE COUNTING CENTRES CARRYING SIGN AND CHANTING “COUNT MY VOTE”. AND TRUMP SUPPORTERS HAVE ALSO PROTESTED AT VOTE CENTRES – IN ARIZONA, GROUPS DEMANDED THAT THE COUNT STOP

AND REPUBLICANS HAVE RETAINED THEIR GRIP ON THE SENATE – WHICH LEAVES CONGRESS MOSTLY UNCHANGED, DESPITE DEMOCRATS HOPE OF WRESTING FOUR SEATS FROM THEIR OPPONENTS

AND THE QUESTION WE ALL REALLY WANT THE ANSWER TO – IS WHEN MIGHT WE GET A WINNER? WELL HOPEFULLY SOON.
