Democratic candidate Joe Biden is close to winning the US presidential election. Only one state vote separates him from the White House, which will be the decisive factor for the closest elections in the United States’ history.
With the victory of the state of Michigan, Biden needs to adhere to his meager supremacy in western Nevada, nicknamed “the silver state,” to reach 270 electoral votes and win the presidential race at the expense of Donald Trump.
As of Wednesday, Biden beats Trump in Nevada by 49.3 percent to 48.7 percent.
The 6 Nevada votes will be the decisive factor for Biden’s victory, given that he decreed Michigan and Wisconsin on Wednesday and became far in the lead in Arizona.
There is still 14 percent of the votes not counted in the state, which will make the Nevada race very exciting, on Thursday, with Biden only leading by about 7,000 votes.
Biden relied on the main city in the state, Las Vegas, famous for its nightclubs and dubbed “the city of sins,” which has more than 70 percent of the voting bloc and is usually Democratic.
With Nevada, Biden will reach the “magic” number of electoral votes, which is 270, which will guarantee him a formal victory in the closest elections in the history of the United States.
Neither candidate expected that Nevada, which has only 6 electoral votes and the candidates usually do not pay much attention to, will be the defining state in this year’s election.
Biden’s victory in Nevada will mean that he will be the 46th president of the United States and that the Trump era is over, and his defeat against the president in the state will mean that the Democratic candidate has to reverse the results of Georgia or North Carolina, in which Trump excels, which is unlikely.
