The Democrat candidate Joe Biden takes the lead in a key battleground state of Pennsylvania, where a victory here would put the former Vice-President at the cusp of victory that would push him past the threshold of the electoral college votes needed to win and make him the next man to run the affairs of the White House.
Though as at the time of publishing this article more ballots are yet to be counted, shortly before 1400 GMT, CNN and The New York Times reported that Biden had blown past the incumbent U.S President by some 5,500 votes.
Biden currently has at least 253 electoral votes. The magic number is 270. If he wins Pennsylvania — a state won by Trump in 2016 — and its 20 electoral votes, he would pass that threshold.
Joe Biden is also currently in the lead in key states Georgia and Nevada.
