To their credit, the news organizations aren’t having it. Here’s The Post:
With millions of votes yet to be counted, President Trump falsely asserted election fraud, pledged to mount a legal challenge to official state results and made a premature claim of victory in a bitterly contested race that may take days to resolve. In remarks at the White House early Wednesday, Trump claimed that he’d won several states that are still counting ballots, including Georgia, North Carolina and Pennsylvania.
His Democratic challenger, Joe Biden, insisted earlier that “we believe we’re on track to win this election” and cited Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan, where votes were still being tallied. “It ain’t over till every vote is counted,” Biden said.
But I’m not gonna lie — this looks bad. Biden is projected to pick up Arizona, and it’s still possible he can squeak out a win in the Midwest. But The Post has Trump narrowly ahead in Wisconsin (83% counted) and pretty far ahead in Pennsylvania (74% counted) and Michigan (72% counted). The polls were off by a mile.
ETA: Ben Wikler says Biden will win Wisconsin (and he would know), so now it all depends on Biden picking up either Michigan or Pennsylvania for the win.
