Democrats confident of victory after clinching 264 electoral votes
Vice President Joe Biden is so certain of victory that he has boasted that his party will win the Presidency by no fewer than 300 electoral votes. He is currently leading President Trump 2ith 264 electoral college votes while Donald Trump is at 214.
Biden said during an address to America on Friday night that it was “clear and convincing” that the democrats were going to win the race for the White House.
“We don’t have the final declaration victory yet. But the numbers tell us it is a clear… clear and convincing story. We are going to win this race,” said Joe Biden.
“Just look what has happened in the last 24 hours,” Joe Biden said in his brief speech on Friday night, referring his leads in four of the five key battleground states.
Biden has maintained the lead in four of the five key battleground states where counting of ballots is still going on. Trump was trailing behind Biden in Arizona (by 38,455 votes), Georgia (4,224), Nevada (22,657) and Pennsylvania (19,500) but leading in North Carolina with 76,587 votes.
To be declared the winner of the US election, either of the two candidates needs at least 270 of the 538 electoral college votes. Biden’s chances are far better with 264 votes at the time of filing this report.
