President Trump tweeted Friday that the constitution of the United States was violated during the elections. He is particularly upset about the vote controllers who, according to the Republicans, were not allowed to join the trial. Trump is therefore threatening to go to the Supreme Court. He seems to be focusing mainly on Pennsylvania, where no less than 20 electors can be won. In Georgia (16) presumably a recount awaits due to the minor differences. “As soon as the elections are over, President Trump has been re-elected,” said Team Trump.
“ Pennsylvania has behaved in a terribly legal manner,” said the President on Friday. He saw a 500,000 vote head start in the crucial state being pulverized over the last few days. “Hopefully, the United States Supreme Court will correct this.”
“ The false prediction that Joe Biden is the winner is based on results in four states that are far from definitive,” says campaign leader Matt Morgan. He alludes to major abuses in Pennsylvania and Nevada.
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has for the time being caught up with his initially gigantic backlog of President Donald Trump in the crucial swing state of Pennsylvania (20 electors). Biden now has a head start of over 6000 votes over Trump. Also in Arizona (11), Nevada (6) and Georgia (16), the Democrat is in charge.
If Biden doesn‘t lose his lead in Pennsylvania, he’ll have more than enough electors to win the presidential election. Trump wants to win a second term of office, he has to win virtually all states where no decision has yet been taken.
Biden leads in Nevada, Arizona and Georgia
Biden has increased its lead over President Donald Trump in the state of Nevada. The Democrat has so far received 6246 votes against 602,170 for the President. The state with the gambling cities of Las Vegas and Reno accounts for six voters. Thursday, the difference between the two kemphans was 11,000 votes. There are at least 100,000 votes to be counted.
Biden continues to lead in Arizona, but his lead over President Donald Trump is getting smaller. Counted voting totals from the state‘s main county released in Friday, Trump made up for several thousand votes, but the difference between the two candidates was nearly 43,779 votes. In the state, 220,000 votes still have to be counted.
time being, Biden has caught up with Trump in swing state Georgia (16 electors). Biden now has 49.4 percent of the votes counted there, less than 0.1 percent more than Trump. The Minister of the Interior of the State said Friday to count on a recount due to the minor differences. “The margin is so small, there will be a recount in Georgia”, predicted top driver Brad Raffensperger.
The difference in Georgia is currently 1589 votes in favour of Biden with several thousand votes to count in the state. In addition, votes from abroad and from military stationed elsewhere must be counted.
If the difference in votes between the two candidates is less than 0.5 percentage point, Georgia rules allow a recount to be requested after all votes have been counted. President Trump’s campaign team has already indicated that it will do so.
According to Fox News, Biden is on 264 voters, according to The New York Times, 253, Trump now has 214, text runs under the graphic.
Biden now stands on 253 electors against 214 for Trump. Some media have already given the victory in state Arizona to Biden and have him on 264 electors. This would mean that the Democratic challenger needs six more electors for the victory (270 electoral men).

This is the stand in the undecided states:
Georgia (16 electors)
Little by little Joe Biden is working his backlog on Donald Trump in Georgia. Some 99% of the votes are counted. Due to the minimal difference, it may come to a recount in this state.
Pennsylvania (20 voters)
In Pennsylvania, Trump‘s lead also fell sharply, from a head start of hundreds of thousands of votes to nothing. Biden caught up with Trump in the decisive state on Friday. On the day after the elections, his head start was ten times greater. Pennsylvania may be coming with a final score on Friday.
Arizona (11 electors)
In Arizona, Biden’s lead over Trump became smaller. From 70,000 to about 47,000. Arizona has already been assigned to Biden by press agency AP. Some other media, including The New York Times and CNN, still consider the state to be undecided.
North Carolina (15 voters)
In NorthCarolina had Trump a head start of 76,000 votes on Thursday in the evening. About 95% of the votes are counted there. More than 150,000 ballots are still waiting to be counted. North Carolina expects to be able to give a final result until next week.
Nevada (6 electors)
In Nevada, Biden has a head start. 11 percent of the votes still need to be counted there. The Trump Team is accusing the Democrats of fraud in the state. Also, the president has established his hopes on Los Angeles, where the casinos may suffer from possible Democratic lockdowns.
Alaska (3 voters)
In Alaska, no winner has yet been declared. The state does not start counting the votes cast early or by post until next week. In Alaska, 56 percent of the votes are counted. The state is expected to go to Trump.
