Joe Biden has taken a lead in his native Pennsylvania by 5,587 votes, where he has climbed back after trailing by more than 600,000 votes in the crucial swing state.
The Democratic candidate’s vote percentage in the Keystone State rallied more than two days after polls closed Tuesday evening, shooting up because of mail-in ballots that have heavily favoured the former veep.
If Biden keeps his lead in the state, he’ll secure his presidential election with a total electoral vote count of at least 273 – three more than the magic number.
And if he wins Pennsylvania, he’ll have successfully flipped the so-call “blue wall” states — Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania — that the president carried in his upset victory over Hillary Clinton in 2016. (NYPost)
