Since yesterday it’s been fairly clear to us here at Palmer Report that Joe Biden would end up winning Pennsylvania. The only question was how quickly he would close the gap, and thus how quickly the state would be called in Biden’s favor.
When today began, Biden was behind in Pennsylvania by more than half a million votes. But that number has continued to drop throughout the day, as mail-in votes have been counted around the state. As of now, Biden is within 90,000 votes in Pennsylvania. The number keeps closing fast, and this is all without the big chunk in Philadelphia having come in yet.
At this rate the odds seem pretty decent that the major news outlets could call Pennsylvania for Joe Biden by the end of tonight. This would put Biden over 270 electoral votes, meaning they’d be declaring him the winner of the presidential election. Buckle up for a potentially big night.
