Update in Arizona vote count shows Trump gaining on Biden, with 173k ballots left to be counted

News & Politics

An update to the vote tally in the key state of Arizona has President Donald Trump gaining on Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, but still behind with only 173,000 ballots left to count.

The updated count from Maricopa County on Friday evening included 71,932 votes, with 31,433 going to Biden, and 38,388 going to Trump. The difference means that the president added a net gain of 6,955 votes.

That brings the total tally thus far to 1,004,003 vote for Biden and 950,503 votes for the president. This leaves Biden with an advantage of 29,861 votes over the president.

With 173,000 Arizona ballots left to be counted, the margin gets harder and harder for the president to bridge.

That includes about 47,000 provisional ballots, according to Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs.

As of Friday, Biden had already garnered about 253 electoral votes to the president’s 214. The Trump campaign has said they expect to win Arizona, and without winning the state the president’s pathway to 270 electoral votes becomes prohibitively difficult.

Officials expect to release the count from another tranche of early ballots on Saturday on 9 a.m. Protesters have gathered outside the Maricopa County Election Center since election day to demand a fair election ballot counting process.

  1. I ThInk we need another special presidential election in all battleground states with in person voting at polling locations and observed by 2 election judges from each party and not six feet away from the ballots .

  2. Why is Trump doing this? Validating the Democrat tactics hoping ‘legal’ Trump votes will overcome ‘illega’l Biden votes.

    Win or lose he leavers the criminal Democrat machine intact and unpunished.

    This election should be thrown out completely and run again using “ONLY” Vote-In-Person rules next spring after the Seditious Democrat election officials are arrested.

    Trump and the GOP are dangerously naive!

  3. I like the rerun vote in every battleground state Thats the ones that were fixed look at how biden almost as many as the winning senator not even counting the losing one on the other hand trump didnt something is wrong take a look at the battle ground ones here is one Trumps is normal but not bidens Ihave seen these every election since they started it and never anything like bidens something is wrong Michigan

    Trump: 2,637,173
    GOP Sen: 2,630,042
    Dif: 7,131

    Biden: 2,787,544
    Dem Sen: 2,718,451
    Dif: 69,093

    1. Shows vote stuffing. Boxes of anoymous souced Mailed in, or walked in from the trunk of a Democrat operative, bundles of ballots mechanically voted, some only
      Voting for Biden, & no other races?
      Once the mystery ballots, bringing votes to 105% of voters, how can that be reconciled? Really authentic when 15,000 Votes are added for Biden & none for anyone else? Supposedly counted in private, while banishing all neutral observers and election judges! HOW can that stand uncorrected? If a vote is challenged in one district, or hand picked % are reviewed, ALL districts must also review a similar amount.
      It is undecided until all LEGAL votes are counted, and illegal votes discharged.

      President Trump quite obviously garnered more legally legitimate votes.

      Too many votes being included, stuffed, inserted, mixed-in, from harvesters, voting banks, and ‘magically found’ boxes of anonymously voted ballots without any legitimate chain of custody. Chicago voting on steroids.
