Numerous important states are still contested as of Thursday, with recently Donald Trump being narrowly behind in Nevada while Joe Biden mysteriously surged ahead in Pennsylvania and Georgia. Some news outlets have already called Arizona for Biden however we find that it is too early to do so. Trump held onto his lead in North Carolina while he accused Nevada of voter fraud, and filed a lawsuit in order to stop counting “improper votes”. Meanwhile, in Arizona, another hotly contested state, Trump started to close the gap with Biden only leading by 47 thousand votes.
On Thursday, Trump took a stand against what he felt was a fraudulent election. However, he neglected to offer any evidence and did not take questions.
In Nevada, a Republican, Adam Laxalt, who was the former attorney general for the state, said the Republicans would file a lawsuit to stop counting “improper” votes. Simultaneously in Georgia, a lawsuit from the Trump campaign that was asking to make certain that a county was following laws regarding ballets was dismissed. The judge did not give an explanation for this decision.
Despite more and more votes coming in, neither party has won the election yet, as none of the four battleground states have been called yet. Biden is expected to get more votes the longer they are counted, as mail-in ballots are overwhelmingly Democratic. Much controversy surrounds these absentee ballots as some Republicans, including the president, allege that they are fraudulent and created for the purpose of boosting the Democratic party. Biden, on Twitter stated that “No one is going to take our democracy away from us”. Both candidates allege there is foul play from the opposing party.
