Joe Biden is in a virtual tie with President Trump in Georgia after he shaved the president’s lead to just under 2,000 votes, new returns showed Thursday.
Biden and Trump each had 49.4 percent of the vote, with the president leading Biden by the razor-thin margin of 1,902 votes, according to NBC News.
Biden has been cutting into the president’s lead in the state since polls closed on Tuesday night and poll workers began counting mail-in votes, which have cut in Biden’s favor.
Neither Trump or Biden have carried enough states to reach 270 electoral votes needed to be elected president. Several states — Arizona, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Georgia — have not been called because mail-in votes are still being counted.
Trump narrowed Biden’s lead in Arizona on Thursday night when a batch of mail-in ballots that favored the president were counted.
In Arizona, which Fox News and The Associated Press have called for Biden, Trump now trails Biden by some 56,800 votes.
There’s about 88 percent of the vote counted in the state with some 420,000 votes remaining to be counted. Biden leads Trump by two percentage points, a margin of 50.3% to 48.3%.
