Biden took the lead in Georgia this morning. Here's what else you need to know

Ballots are still being counted in several key states, with elections officials expec ...

What if he doesn't concede? The US presidential tradition explained.
When a candidate loses a U.S. presidential election, tradition holds the candidate promptly and publicly acknowledges defeat in a concession speech to help with the peaceful transition of power. The speeches, while difficult for a candidate, are typically gracious celebrations of American democracy. The Chicago Tribune and Arizona Republic opinion columns have held up John McCain's concession to Barack Obama in 2008 as an example of the tradi ...

The MAGA bullhorn shouts Trump's baseless claims of fraud
On Tuesday afternoon, the MAGA internet was quiet at best, bitter at worst. By Wednesday, it was crowing and chest-thumping about voter fraud and the establishment’s destruction, flooding social media with viral — and incorrect — accusations of electoral theft. What started as a day of uncharacteristic restraint for President Donald Trump’s supporters on Tuesday quickly turned into a round of “I told you so” admonishments as it became clear ...

Three Reasons Biden Flipped the Midwest
Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania giveth, and Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania taketh away. Joe Biden has not yet been declared the winner in his campaign against President Donald Trump.

CNN and others have projected that Floria electoral votes will go to President Trump. With 29 electoral votes at stake, Florida had the most electoral votes to offer of the states viewed as toss-ups heading into Election Day.

Race to 270 is a nail-biter
Nebraska and Maine are the only two states that apportion some of their electoral votes based on how each congressional district votes. That means that while four of Nebraska's five electoral votes heavily favor the GOP, one of them — awarded to the presidential candidate that wins the Omaha-based 2nd District — is in play. (So is Maine's 2nd district, which is more competitive than the Democratic-leaning state overall.) Both the Biden and Tr ...

Brash and pugnacious, Trump has presided over a tumultuous presidency
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Businessman-turned-politician Donald Trump has promoted “America First” nationalism, withstood impeachment and a bout with COVID-19, and taken contentious stands on race and immigration during a turbulent presidency that detractors say has flouted U.S. democratic norms.

Can Trump Be Elected Only By A Big Mistake?
President Donald Trump still has a chance for second term but most likely only there is a last minute polling mistake that hides a possible Trump victory. Remember 2016? A series of state polls Trump's chances of winning a second term now require winning states where he still trails with only days to go until voting concludes. In most of the core swing states, Joe Biden has a stable lead over Trump in polls over the past few months, and it ...

PHOENIX — President Donald Trump has refused to say he’d accept the results of the election in the event that he loses, and in the closing days of the race, some of his supporters have taken his faulty or unsubstantiated claims about voter fraud to heart.
