Live updates: Trump losing lead in Pa. as more mail-in votes are counted
Trump lead dwindles from 11 points to 4 points as count continues
More than 58 percent of mail-in votes have been counted, and they continue to boost Democrat Joe Biden’s totals as expected.
As of 6:45 p.m. Wednesday, Republican President Donald Trump’s lead in Pennsylvania had fallen from 11 points on election night to 4 points less than 24 hours later.
The president came out of Election Day with a 618,000-vote advantage. But once the heavily Democratic mail-in votes started to be counted, he had about 265,000 more votes than Biden.
There are still about 1 million votes to count.
Biden said during a news conference Wednesday that he felt good about Pennsylvania, where he is winning 78 percent of mail-in votes.
The most populated counties have counted more than half of their mail-in votes.
Here are the number of mail-in ballots that still need to be counted in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and its suburban counties:
- Philadelphia: 167,225
- Allegheny: 155,803
- Montgomery: 61,943
- Bucks: 68,328
- Chester: 52,175
- Delaware: 29,443
- Lancaster: 19,480
- Lehigh: 47,674
- Westmoreland: 32,593
- Luzerne: 20,185
- Erie: 30,633
Numerous other counties also have thousands of mail-in ballots to count.

I am enjoying not knowing while all of the ballots get counted.
This is an election that sets a precedent.
Count me as surprised if Biden wins Pa, and even more than that, inspired.
Maybe even Meg Ryan inspired.
One thought/question, in hindsight of the last 3 days. When was the last time the JCOS held a public/private , meeting with centralized media, just before an election, announcing and answering, certain questions which could have easily been answered with a short pressor, something done with regularity ?
It is my suspicion, that military is not ‘involved’, but perhaps also elucidated to those present, that if they were required to be, it would be because of them, and that they should behave. In such case, I would say, Adequate performance of duty. But, perhaps more tools should be utilized for avoidance in the future. I cannot however avoid thoughts of reprimand having reached this point in the first place.
I think they call it, the premeditated, carefully executed, deterrent. Pretty sure that was it.
