CNN has also projected Biden as the winner in the key battleground state. According to its figures, Biden currently leads with 1,630,389 (49.4%) votes while Trump follows with 1,609,879 (48.8%).

Legit.ng notes that vote counting is still ongoing in some battleground states and no candidate has been declared winner yet.

Meanwhile, the campaign organisation of President Donald Trump has said it will request for the recount of votes in Wisconsin.
