With Trump leading with 100,000 votes, is Georgia out of reach for Biden?

Reliably Republican Georgia hasn't supported a Democrat for president since 1992, reports USA Today.

But changing political affiliations in and around the Atlanta suburbs, as well as growing Black and Latino populations, have kept Democrats hopeful they might eventually win Georgia back. Still, Donald Trump won handily here in 2016.

With just under 300,000 votes remaining to be counted in Georgia, Trump leads by 102,212 votes.

Trump has 2,382,470 (50.5%) votes under his belt while Biden has 2,280,258 of the total 94% votes counted, reports USA Today citing AP's projection.

Two Southern states - Georgia and North Carolina - that are still in play, Trump has held lead in both. A win for Biden in either one would narrow Trump's chances considerably.

The Republican president appears to have lost some support among white men and some older voters in Georgia, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, reports Reuters citing Edison polls.

Edison’s polls showed Trump winning seven in 10 white men in Georgia, down from an eight-in-10 advantage over Clinton in 2016. While Trump is winning six in 10 voters who are at least 65 years old in Georgia, that was down from seven in 10 four years ago.

Republican Donald Trump faced Democratic challenger Joe Biden on Tuesday in the US presidential election.

There are 538 Electoral College votes allotted to the 50 states and the District of Columbia. It takes 270 votes to win.

The latest vote tally showed Democrat challenger Joe Biden with a lead in the Electoral College - 224 votes to 213, with 270 needed for victory - but with counting still to be completed in at least five major “battleground” states: Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, North Carolina and Georgia.
