US Election 2020: Decision Desk Declares Biden Winner

Washington: Joe Biden is on the verge to topple Donald Trump from the White House, three days after Americans voted in presidential elections in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Decision Desk HQ, a network of election and data experts, has called the the battleground state of Pennsylvania in Biden’s favour, giving him its 20 electoral college votes for a total of 273 and making him the 46th president of the United States.

An estimated 95% of the votes in the state have been tabulated so far, pushing Biden closer to the presidency.

The votes being counted in Pennsylvania do not include mail ballots that arrived after November 3, which are being kept separately. The votes being counted now are those that were in by Election Day.

Biden, whose running mate is Indian-origin Kamala Harris, would become the next president by winning Pennsylvania, or the two out of the trio – Georgia, Nevada and Arizona.

Trump needed to hang onto both Pennsylvania and Georgia and also to overtake Biden in either Nevada or Arizona.

In Pennsylvania, which has 20 electoral votes, Biden cut Trump’s lead to just over 18,000 by the early hours of Friday, while his deficit in Georgia, which has 16 electoral votes, shrunk to about 450.
