The US election is most definitely warming up. On Wednesday night, Joe Biden took to the podium again saying that he will not declare a win until each and every vote has been counted. In the meantime, votes have been tallied in his favour in two battleground states; Wisconsin and Michigan. While nothing is official as yet, we do have projections on tap. 


According to the Guardian, Biden’s current margin of victory in Wisconsin, in terms of a raw vote count, is almost identical to Donald Trump’s margin four years ago in 2016. As of now, Biden leads Trump in Wisconsin by roughly 20 000 votes. 

“If Biden won both Nevada and Michigan after securing Wisconsin, his electoral vote count would be 270, the exact number needed to capture the White House,” it said on Wednesday. 

Lucky for Biden, there has also been a projected win for him in the state of Michigan. 

“Of all the votes counted, we have won Wisconsin by 20 000 votes. In Michigan, we lead by over 35 000 votes and it’s growing,” Biden said during his address.

He also said he feels good about Pennsylvania in terms of the US election as virtually all of the remaining ballots to be counted were cast by mail. 

“We’ve been winning 78% of the votes by mail in Pennsylvania. We flipped Arizona and the second district of Nebraska,” he added. 

Bloomberg reporter Emma Kinery tweeted saying; “With Michigan, the Electoral College tally stands Biden at 264 and Trump at 214. Biden needs just six more electoral votes in order to win the presidency. All eyes then turn to Nevada, worth six electoral votes, where Biden currently leads by about 8 000 votes”. 


Should he win the US election, Biden knows exactly what he will do. He said; “the presidency, itself, is not a partisan institution. It’s the one office in the nation that represents everyone and it demands a duty of care for all Americans, and that is precisely what I will do.”  

“Power can’t be taken or asserted, it flows from the people, and it’s their will that determines who will be the President of the United States,” he added. 

Trump’s response was a little different referring to secretly dumped ballots;

“We have claimed, for Electoral Vote purposes, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (which won’t allow legal observers) the State of Georgia, and the State of North Carolina, each one of which has a BIG Trump lead. Additionally, we hereby claim the State of Michigan if, in fact…..there was a large number of secretly dumped ballots as has been widely reported!”
