Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has come close to the 270 electoral votes needed to reach the White House in the US election and has made it difficult for President Donald Trump to win in Wisconsin and Michigan. . At the same time, his Republican rival Donald Trump is considering legally challenging Biden’s victory in some states. Two days after the election, no candidate has yet won the necessary votes to win. But Biden has reached the 264 mark after winning in decisive states Wisconsin and Michigan.
Donald Trump has received 214 electoral college votes. The path to the current president, however, is tough as Trump will have to win the remaining four ‘Battleground’ states of Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Georgia and Nevada to reach the magical figure of 270. Battlegrounds are called states where the trend is unclear. A clear win requires at least 270 electoral college votes to become the winner out of 538 electoral college members.
