Bridgewater, Va. – As of 11 p.m Thursday night, two days after voting ended in most states, there is still no winner of the 2020 Presidential Election.

According to the New York Times, Biden has so far won 253 of the 270 Electoral College votes needed to win the election. Donald Trump currently has 214 Electoral College Votes. 

Biden was able to flip multiple states President Trump won in 2016, including the former Democratic strongholds of Wisconsin and Michigan. Although some southern states like Texas looked more competitive for the Democrats this year, they still went to President Trump. 

All of the remaining states (AZ, NV, PA, GA, and NC) are incredibly close at the time of this writing, with none having more than a 2% margin for either candidate. If Joe Biden wins two more states, he will win the election. In order for President Trump to win the election, he would need to win at least four of the remaining swing states.
