CBS News reported that the race now hinges on five swing states five swing states, Arizona, Nevada, Georgia, Pennsylvania and North Carolina. Suspense was lingering throughout the week, however as of Friday afternoon, it is becoming clearer that Biden will be the next President of the United States.

“The race now centers on Arizona, Nevada, Georgia, Pennsylvania and North Carolina,” said CBS News. “Biden holds slim leads in Nevada and Arizona, both of which are still considered likely to go to Biden in CBS News’ estimation.”

President Trump has voiced his displeasure about the new votes coming in, saying that the election is being stolen.

“If you count the legal votes, I easily win,” said Trump. “If you count the illegal votes, they can try to steal the election from us. If you count the votes that came in late, we’re looking at them very strongly.”

Republicans have followed in President Trump’s footsteps, saying that this race is far from over. Despite Biden pulling ahead in the polls overnight, Republicans such as Longwood, Florida Mayor Matt Morgan said that Trump still has a shot at winning the election. 

“This election is not over,” said Matt Morgan. “The false projection of Joe Biden as the winner is based on results in four states that are far from final.”
