Joe Biden’s lead in the Philadelphia suburbs continues to grow as mail-in ballots continue to be counted by election officials, writes Andrew Seidman for The Philadelphia Inquirer.
If current trends hold regarding the candidates’ share of mail-in ballots, the former Vice President is poised to beat President Donald Trump in the city’s four collar counties by a larger margin than Hillary Clinton did four years ago.
In Montgomery County, Biden is ahead of Trump with more than 60 percent of the vote, and tens of thousands of mail ballots – which, so far, have heavily favored Biden – are still left to count.
Biden is also winning by large margins in Chester and Delaware counties and is expected to have a 20,000-vote edge in Bucks County after the outstanding mail-in ballots are counted.
The “blue shift” that is pushing the total votes in Pennsylvania toward Biden is expected to continue as mail-in ballots – including those that have been received but not yet scanned into the state’s database – are counted in the following days.
