The presidential election remained undecided Wednesday evening, turning the nation’s attention to a handful of battleground states that continue to tabulate the crush of mail-in ballots that will decide whether Donald Trump or Joe Biden will be victorious.
NBC News has projected the outcome in 44 states, giving Biden a narrow but growing lead over Trump in the Electoral College count. But both remain shy of the 270 electors needed to win, with many critical battleground states still too early or too close to call.
Biden is the projected winner in Michigan, picking up the state’s 16 electoral votes in a state Trump carried in 2016. He is also the apparent winner in Wisconsin, NBC News projected, but the results are close enough that there could be a recount.
