We should probably begin to prepare for the worst case scenario, which is that come January, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will be in the White House.
According to Decision Desk HQ, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has won the 2020 race for the White House, after giving him the state of Pennsylvania, which pushes him way over the 270 electoral college votes needed to be declared the next president.
This is not the outcome we hoped for folks, but at the same time, this isn’t over yet. Lots of litigation is still out there to determine if voter fraud has caused many of these states to go to Biden when they should be for President Trump.
Decision Desk HQ’s model now shows the Democratic candidate with a winning total, after Biden edged ahead of President Trump by around 5,000 votes Friday morning in the key battleground state of Pennsylvania, with 2 percent of the vote still outstanding. The model projects Biden winning with 273 electoral votes, just over the 270 a presidential candidate needs to be declared the victor.
Georgia, North Carolina, Arizona, Nevada, and Alaska are still uncalled in the model, and for most other outlets as well. Arizona has been called for Biden by Fox News and the Associated Press, though thousands of outstanding ballots remain to be counted and Trump is gaining on Biden in the state.
The Trump campaign has filed a series of lawsuits in battleground states, the latest of which was filed in Nevada alleging thousands of ballots were cast illegally. The legal battles will likely take some time to play out in the courts and it is unclear what impact, if any, they will have on the presidential election.
Early Friday morning, Joe Biden took President Trump’s lead in Georgia, but the state has yet to be called for either candidate as of this writing. Biden is leading in the state by a very, very slim 917 votes.
Ladies and gentlemen, we should probably begin to prepare for the worst case scenario, which is that come January, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will be in the White House. Sure, the litigation might prove that this win is illegitimate, but it seems unlikely at this point.
