Facts on Michigan. Biden has pulled ahead, and he's going to stay ahead. The reason?
Wayne County has a couple hundred thousand votes left to count. Because they're Detroit *and* absentee they're ~ 3:1 Biden.
He has 448k votes in Wayne so far. Obama won 660k in 08, 596k in 12.

IS THIS TRUE BUBBA?
Here’s why some pundits are predicting Georgia to tilt blue later today: Trump has a roughly 104k lead over Biden but the counties with ballots remaining to be tallied include some of biggest – & most populous – D strongholds: Dougherty, DeKalb, Chatham, Bibb, Richmond. #gapol pic.twitter.com/jf6wTT0CK5

Green Bay and Kenosha results are in. Biden is now up in Wisconsin by roughly 20,600 votes. That number could wobble a bit, but there’s no realistic path for Trump to pull ahead.
Biden has won more votes any prez candidate in WI history.
Folks: Joe Biden just won Wisconsin. https://t.co/xtg0hiSlW4

In Maine, Biden has a clear lead statewide and in the 1st Congressional District, so he’s locked up three of the state’s four electoral votes (as in Nebraska, each of Maine’s districts gets one electoral vote). But we still have a fair bit to wait on from Maine’s 2nd Congressional District, which Trump carried by 10 points in 2016 but leads by only 6 points right now. Just 75 percent of the district’s 2016 vote has been reported so far, and given the high turnout in this election, it wouldn’t be a surprise if more votes were cast there in 2020 than four years ago. And if neither candidate has a majority there by the time all the votes are counted, ranked-choice voting will come into play for third-party votes, with their second (or more) choices affecting the Trump-Biden resul
Around 150,000 new votes dropped in Wayne County, Michigan — home to Detroit — and they were overwhelmingly Democratic. Trump’s statewide lead has dropped from a little over 4 points to just about 1.3 points as a result. More ballots are still coming from Wayne — only around 600,000 have been cast there, whereas 780,000 were cast in 2016. The expected vote is over 900,000.
