According to ABC exit polls, “Biden led by a 33-point margin among first-time voters, and a 26-point margin among voters ages 18 to 29, while Trump had a slight edge on seniors (50%-48%) in the exit poll results.”
The 2020 presidential race still hangs in the balance, but former Vice President Joe Biden appears to be in the lead, with Wisconsin being called for him Wednesday afternoon and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, more than likely breaking his way.
According to both campaigns, Georgia is still very much in play.
Speaking to supporters Tuesday night, Biden appeared hopeful.
“We believe we are on track to win this election… keep the faith,” the Democratic presidential nominee told a cheering crowd in his home town of Wilmington. “It ain’t over until every vote is counted.”
