Joe Biden is now within 109,000 votes in Pennsylvania, and CNN now believes there are still about 370,000 outstanding mail-in votes. That means the percentage of votes that Biden needs to win is in the mid-sixties. Biden has been getting a far higher percentage than that thus far, meaning he’s on track to win Pennsylvania fairly easily.
Nate Cohn of the New York Times tweeted this: “For Trump to win Pennsylvania, the Secretary of State would have to be very, very wrong about how many mail ballots aren’t included in the current results tally.”
In other words the math in Pennsylvania points to Joe Biden. Even with the one-day delay in counting the mail-in votes in Allegheny County, there’s a decent chance the major news outlets will call Pennsylvania for Biden at some point today. Stay tuned.
