Mail-in Ballots to the Rescue for Biden in Swing States
As the mail-in votes pile in, former Vice-President Joe Biden's numbers continue to increase for Pennsylvania and Georgia. President Donald Trump is trying to do everything he can to prevent that from happening.
According to PA state data, mail-in ballots left to count are about 124,190, provisional ballots more than 92,500. Biden's lead on Trump is about 6,700.
Pennsylvania shatters 2016's number of votes as mail-in ballots continue to be counted. With York county having the highest increase so far. Pennsylvania was one of the winning states for Trump in 2016. Now, Trump is initiating lawsuits over voting procedures in many states where the race is tight, trying to take legal advantages to maintain his presidency. Election lawyers According to the Wall Street Journal says that all the lawsuits filed so far face long odds. The only one with the most potential is a Pennsylvania case pending at the US Supreme Court over the state's extended mail-in ballot deadline.
A Biden spokesman says that if Biden wins, and Trump refuses to concede, "The United States government is perfectly capable of escorting trespassers out of the White House."
Biden is patiently waiting for the results as more mail-in ballots come in. Trump's impatience and desire to win no matter the cost will continue to get the best of him.
