Election Day has come and gone, but the results are still very much in limbo for a hotly contested race between President Trump and Democrat challenger Joe Biden.
Different news outlets are showing different final results for some states – as it currently stands, by Fox News’ count, Biden leads the electoral vote count with 238 votes to Trump’s 213.
The New York Times has Biden at 227 and Trump at 213.
The winner would need to capture 270 votes to declare victory.
Results in six states, however, are too close to call. Those states include Nevada, North Carolina, Georgia, along with the critical swing states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin.
