When I turned in last night, President Trump had comfortable leads, considering the amount of votes counted, in Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennslyvania, North Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. I had noticed and was puzzled by the halt to reporting of voting in these states. It did not seem to me, based on previous elections, that Trump’s margins could be overcome by the few votes remaining to be counted. I assumed Trump had won.
This morning when I checked I saw that Trump’s lead in Wisconsin had been replaced by Biden’s lead by a fraction of a percentage point, and that Trump’s lead in Michigan had been reduced to a fraction of a percentage point, since lost. I also noticed that neither Pennsylvania, North Carolina nor Georgia had managed to count any more votes with most votes counted and Trump in the lead. The halt of vote counting is puzzling. It suggests that authorities were waiting to see how the vote went.
