Several US media outlets have projected a victory for the Democratic Party candidate Joe Biden who is apparently in a comfortable lead against incumbebt Republican rival Donald Trump. Sever reports indicate that Biden’s chances of winning are on 79% while Trump’s projection is shrinking eacg and every second.
Mr Biden has the edge in the race to accumulate the 270 Electoral College votes needed to win the White House. The Democrat has 243 votes, while the Republican has 214.
In the US election, voters decide state-level contests rather than a single, national one. Each US state gets a certain number of electoral college votes partly based on its population and there are a total of 538 up for grabs.
If Mr Trump does lose Wisconsin (10 Electoral College votes), he must win Georgia (16 votes), North Carolina (15), Pennsylvania (20) and either Arizona (11) or Nevada (6) to prevail.
