Pennsylvania's latest update on ballots shows Biden is increasing his lead in the Keystone State.
“Joe Biden is not only winning — meaning building his lead — but that lopsided advantage makes it harder and harder, more difficult by the vote count for Donald Trump to catch up,” CNN’s John King said.
The latest update on 2,617 votes came from Bucks County, shows Biden picked up 1,732 votes and Trump picked up 853 votes. Biden got 66% of the vote in Bucks County in the latest batch.
“Every time new votes come in, you have to get more,” King said. “Almost every time new votes come in, it is Joe Biden not only getting more but getting two-thirds of the votes.”
It’s not a giant lead yet, King explains, but Joe Biden is building a lead as an overall trend, with one tiny exception in one of the Republican counties to the north of Pennsylvania.
Currently, approximately 20,000 of the outstanding votes in Pennsylvania are still in Philadelphia County, where Joe Biden has been getting over 80% of the votes with each batch, King noted, adding that the mail-in ballots are consistently delivering a higher percentage of votes in each batch to Biden.
There are approximately 175,880 absentee ballots left to be counted across Pennsylvania, according to the election site.
As Biden approaches a margin of 10,000 votes over Trump in Pennsylvania, history shows that once you get to that number, it can be almost “impossible” to overturn in legal challenges or recounts, King added.
