In quick remarks this afternoon, Joe Biden advised Americans “to stay calm” because the “process is working. The count is being completed, and we’ll know soon.”
The red mirage in action: President Trump’s 625,000 vote lead in Pennsylvania Wednesday early morning has shrunk to less than 100,000, and its secretary of state says “we absolutely might” know the winner by as quickly as tonight.
Why it matters: Losing Pennsylvania would block any course for Trump to win re-election.
Biden stressed that every tally should be counted:
- ” Democracy is in some cases messy. It often needs a little patience. That perseverance has actually been rewarded now for 240 years with a system of governance that’s been the envy of the world.”
The rundown of what remains:
- Georgia: Trump’s lead over Biden has diminished to about 13,000 votes, with tens of thousands more ballots delegated be counted.
- Nevada still has 60,000 provisional ballots left to count in
