Be Patient: Vote Counting Continues, Key States Remain Outstanding
Play • 14 min
As election officials predicted, high numbers of mail-in ballots and state processing restrictions have drawn out the vote counting process. Florida and Ohio have been called for Donald Trump. Arizona has been called for Joe Biden. Georgia, North Carolina, Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania all remain outstanding.


With millions of votes still to be counted, neither candidate has been declared the winner. Despite that, Trump raised conspiracies about electoral fraud and falsely claimed victory. Joe Biden said he's feeling optimistic and looking forward to all of the votes being counted.

This episode: congressional correspondent Susan Davis, campaign correspondent Asma Khalid, White House correspondent Ayesha Rascoe, and senior political editor and correspondent Domenico Montanaro.
