This is bad news, because it doesn’t look to me like President Trump is on track to win Michigan, Nevada, or Arizona either. And he needs at least one of those to win. Even if he wins Pennsylvania, Georgia, and North Carolina.
But the legal fights are about to begin.
It looks like Biden is ahead in Wisconsin with essentially all the vote counted, 49.4 percent to 48.8 percent.
According to the Associated Press:
The fate of the United States presidency hung in the balance Wednesday as Democratic challenger Joe Biden picked up a win in Wisconsin while fighting President Donald Trump in other battleground states that could prove crucial in determining who wins the White House.
Neither candidate cleared the 270 Electoral College votes needed to win the White House, and the margins were tight in several other battleground states. Top advisers for both Biden and Trump on Wednesday morning expressed confidence that they respectively had the likelier path to victory in the outstanding states.
The AP called Wisconsin for Biden after election officials in the state said all outstanding ballots had been counted, save for a few hundred in one township and an expected small number of provisional ballots.
Trump’s campaign has requested a recount. Statewide recounts in Wisconsin have historically changed the vote tally by only a few hundred votes; Biden leads by 0.624 percentage point out of nearly 3.3 million ballots counted.
