Biden is still close to the required number of electoral college votes
Democratic candidate Joe Biden still needs six or more electoral college votes to propel him up to the required 270 required for presidential election.

What states have yet to be named?
While there are a few states still counting votes, eyes are on some of the battlefield states that have yet to be verified: Georgia, Nevada, Pennsylvania and North Carolina. Alaska has also not been called but most likely won’t go for Trump.
In Georgia, Biden grabbed the lead over President Donald Trump early Friday morning. More than 4,000 votes currently separate the two candidates, or about 0.1%, by 4am EST Saturday.

Trump’s new campaign: Series of electoral lawsuits to seek strategy
Trump’s initial lead was reversed in key states because of the direct vote count, pre-voting date and Trump supporters. But after the president spent months making unsubstantiated claims that vote by mail resulted in widespread fraud, the record number of mail ballots was enough to put Biden in the lead in most battles. school remaining.
