Joe Biden cut President Trump’s lead in Pennsylvania to less than 20,000 votes early Friday morning – rebounding after losing more than 600,000 votes in a state of critical oscillation.
The Democratic candidate is currently just 18,229 behind Trump, with tens of thousands of votes still untold, according to NBC News recorded numbers. Biden has won the late ballots by a large margin and is expected to take the lead.
Biden’s state vote rate rose more than two days after Keystone State polls closed on Tuesday night, soaring due to mailed ballots supporting the former vice president.
If Biden overtakes Trump and holds the edge in the state, he will secure his presidential election with a total of at least 273 electoral votes.
Biden is leading in other revolving states that are yet to be named by major news organizations, including in Arizona and Nevada. Both Fox News and the Associated Press called Arizona for the former vice president, but Trump̵7;s campaign suggested he could still win in the southwestern state.
If Biden wins Pennsylvania, he will successfully overthrow the so-called “green wall” states – Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania – that Trump performed in a nasty win over Hillary Clinton in 2016.
Biden, a native of Pennsylvania, focused his campaign on his state and hometown Scranton.
On Election Day, Biden visited his childhood home in the old coal industry city and signed his signature on the inside wall before arriving at his campaign headquarters in Delaware.
“From this house to the White House by the grace of God,” Biden wrote, according to a signed photo.
If Trump does not win the Keystone State, he will have no path to re-election.
