Trump’s lead narrows in Pennsylvania

Trump’s lead in the crucial battleground state of Pennsylvania narrows to seven points with around 80% of votes counted.

Trump leads Biden 52.8% to 46%, The New York Times reports.

The votes still to be counted are mainly mail-in ballots which are expected to heavily favor Democrats.

State officials say the final count is still days away, with most votes expected to be counted by Friday.

A recount in the state is possible, a state official says.

Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar says the state holds an automatic recount if the final vote tally results in a 0.5 difference.

“I think we’ll know more by the end of the day where we see where we are,” Boockvar tells CNN.

“I don’t think it’s inevitable. We are definitely tracking it,” she says.

The Trump campaign has also requested a recount in Wisconsin after multiple news outlets predicted a Biden win in the state.
