Despite the count for president continuing in several battleground states, it is becoming more and more clear that Joe Biden will defeat President Donald Trump and assume his office in January.

Hours before the Index’s early press deadline on Friday, November 6, Biden pulled ahead in the battleground states of Georgia and Pennsylvania, while leading in the states of Arizona and Nevada.

Trump’s path to victory has narrowed considerably, with his election team filing a number of lawsuits to try and deny votes being counted.

As the paper went to press, Fox News had Biden ahead in the electoral college with 264 to Trump’s 214. Biden was also leading the popular election with 73,708,172 votes for 50.5 percent of all votes being cast, while Trump had 47.8 percent of all votes cast, or 69,771,277.
