Biden now leads Trump in Georgia, where the count continues.


first_imgWhile Mr. Biden was powered by high turnout among Black voters in Atlanta, he also flipped some suburban white voters in the moderate suburban counties that ring the city.- Advertisement – – Advertisement – At a drive-in rally in Atlanta last week, Mr. Biden said, “We win Georgia, we win everything.” The candidates had been locked in a virtual dead heat for much of Thursday, with each controlling about 49.4 percent of the vote but Mr. Trump maintaining a slight lead. As absentee ballots were counted early Friday particularly in Clayton County, Mr. Biden pulled ahead with 917 more votes.Mr. Biden’s late surge in this year’s count, thanks to his dominance in Atlanta, Savannah and the increasingly Democratic-friendly suburbs around both, transformed what had seemed to be a safe Trump state in early tabulations on Tuesday into one of the closest contests in the nation. Joseph R. Biden Jr. has pulled ahead of President Trump in Georgia, a state with 16 electoral votes where a win would bring him to 269, or within one electoral vote of the presidency. If Mr. Biden were to win Georgia and then win Nevada or Arizona — both states in which he is leading — or Pennsylvania, where the continued counting of ballots is methodically erasing Mr. Trump’s advantage, he would become the president-elect.Flipping Georgia, a state last won by a Democrat in 1992, and where Mr. Trump won by more than 200,000 votes four years ago, would represent a significant political shift this year, but the state has shown signs of trending blue: When Mr. Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016 he did so by only five percentage points, a far slimmer margin than Republicans had enjoyed in previous presidential elections.- Advertisement –last_img read more
