Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is inching towards a victory in the US presidential election. With 264 projected electoral college votes, Biden needs just six more to win the race to the White House.

Candidates need 270 Electoral College votes to secure the presidency. President Donald Trump currently has 214, while former Vice President Joe Biden has 253, including Wisconsin.

According to ABC News, Biden, with a comfortable lead in the popular vote, has also broken the record for obtaining the most votes ever cast for a U.S. presidential candidate with more than 70 million and counting — in an election that has shattered early vote records and is on track to eclipse the 138 million who went to the polls in 2016.

The BSE Sensex has jumped over 500 points in early trade to cross the 41,000 mark, while the broader Nifty rises over 140 points to cross 12,000 mark. Markets are rallying as Joe Biden inches closer to victory in the US presidential elections.

 

The race in Pennsylvania is too close to call, with Joe Biden now narrowing the margin between himself and Trump. Trump has 50.7 per cent of the votes (3,215,969), while Biden trails with 48.1 per cent (3,051,555), a difference of just 164,414 votes, according to CNN. Pennsylvania has 20 electoral votes, a crucial state for both Trump and Biden.

 

The US has reported over 100,000 cases of the novel coronavirus on Wednesday, another record in daily cases. The surge in cases is the biggest challenge the new president will have to face, especially as winter approaches — it remains unknown how Covid-19 will spread in colder months.

Joe Biden has secured 264 electoral college votes, while Donald Trump has 214. Biden is ahead in Nevada, a state with six votes, which can help him secure the presidency.

 

Democratic candidate Joe Biden is confident of a victory in the 2020 US election. In a message, he says, “I’m confident that we will emerge victorious. But this will not be my victory alone. It will be a victory for the American people.” Watch here:
