USElection: Biden inches closer to Presidency with win in Pennsylvania

Joe Biden have edge closer to becoming the president of united states as he wins in Pennsylvania.

The latest batch of mail-in ballots from Philadelphia pulled him ahead by more than 5,000 votes.

Across the state, tens of thousands of ballots have yet to be counted, mostly from predominantly Democratic area

Mr. Biden currently has 253 electoral votes. Should he win Pennsylvania, he would

surpass the necessary threshold of 270 Electoral College votes to capture the White House.

Since Thursday, the state has been at the center of efforts by Republicans to create

uncertainty about the results, by falsely claiming that election observers had not

been allowed to watch the tally.

While Philadelphia is an enormous source of Democratic votes, Mr. Biden’s strength in

Pennsylvania appeared to be more closely tied to improvements in the party’s 2016

performance in other parts of the state.

When votes began being counted, Mr. Trump appeared to have an early edge in

the state — at one point, the president appeared ahead by half a million votes.

But Mr. Biden steadily erased that lead as ballots, mostly mail-in and absentee votes,

were counted over the past two days.
