After three days, the lead of incumbent US President Donald Trump in the states of Georgia and Pennsylvania came to an end on Friday. Joe Biden has been on his heels since Wednesday and now appears to be winning the states. Georgia will even turn blue instead of red for the first time in 28 years. What does this mean for a possible result?

Which other states are forgivable?

In our live blog we will keep you informed of the latest developments.

At the moment, Biden is still on 253 electoral votes, just like last days (we count in contrast to AP in Fox News the Arizona electoral votes) and Trump at 214. If Biden does indeed take the twenty Pennsylvania electors, the race is over. He then comes to a total of 273.

Should Biden Georgia win before Pennsylvania, he will get sixteen electoral votes and he will come to a total of 269. That is just one too few to officially call him the 46th president.

Unofficially, many media will already be heading that way in their analyzes, because Biden also has a great chance of bringing in even more states. And he only needs one more. If Trump does not win Georgia, he will no longer have a chance to win the necessary 270 electoral votes.

If we add up all the remaining electors that can still be won, he can only arrive at 269. This calculation therefore takes into account that Trump will take over Biden’s lead in Pennsylvania again. In theory, a tie can then arise. Then there is a situation where the House of Representatives makes a decision. Each state delegation (50) then gets one vote and whoever obtains a majority (at least 26) wins. The Senate then elects the vice president in the same way.

In addition to Georgia and Pennsylvania, five other states are forgivable: Alaska, Arizona, North Carolina and Nevada. We list them briefly:

Alaska (3 electorial votes) is the least exciting. With nearly 50 percent of the votes counted, Trump is well ahead. He now has almost twice as many votes as Biden. But with this state Trump is of course far from there.

The incumbent president is currently also ahead in North Carolina (15 electors), but here Biden is also close behind because of the postal votes that are still being counted. This is because Democratic voters in particular voted in this way.

Nevada (6 electors) and Arizona (11 electors) have faded a bit into the background, but are no less interesting. In both states, Biden currently has a head start; AP in Fox News even designated him as the winner on Wednesday. According to CNN and the New York Times however, that was far too premature. Unlike in Pennsylvania and North Carolina, a lot of votes still go to Trump here. So the question is whether Biden will keep this state.

Nevada also looks very good for the Democrat on paper, but here only 84 percent of the vote is counted. However, it may be that Biden’s lead is so great that the media will assign this state to him.
