Joe Biden has opened up a lead over President Donald Trump in Pennsylvania, and MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki explained why that was likely to expand.
Vote counts have been entered throughout Friday morning from the key swing state, whose 20 electoral votes would put Biden across the 270-vote electoral threshold, and Kornacki said newly counted ballots would swing heavily toward the former vice president.
“Biden has increased his statewide lead here to 6,817,” Kornacki said. “There are the 7,000 votes in Allegheny County, they are working on them now. We may get a readout from there. The trend here has been unmistakable, it’s it’s been consistent across the state. Joe Biden is generally leading the mail-in votes by a wide margin and winning 75 percent of them, so you can expect, based on that trend, that whatever coming out of Allegheny would further pad that lead.”
