BREAKING: Trump Closes Gap On Biden In Arizona With Substantial Gains

Great news! Yesterday a Phoenix-based data firm said that Arizona would flip back to Trump and it looks like that may be the case!

“President Trump is gaining ground on former Vice President Joe Biden’s lead in Arizona, though results are still delayed.

The commander-in-chief saw his numbers in the battleground state improve substantially from Wednesday to Thursday, cutting their gap in half from a five-point difference to a mere 2.4 points between the two.

While Biden is still leading Trump 50.5 percent to 48.1 percent, 12 percent of votes have yet to be counted.

As for when those votes will arrive, Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs said Thursday the process was far from over.

“There are just under 300,000 votes left to count in Maricopa County, which is two-thirds of the voting population,” Hobbs told ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

“Statewide, just under 450,000 votes left to count,” Hobbs continued, “So, we’re getting there, we have said from the beginning this takes time and we’re going to focus on making sure every valid vote counts.”

“I haven’t gotten an estimate from Maricopa County about how long it’s going to take them to get through the rest of those ballots, so I hope to have a more solid number in terms of how long it’s going to take later today. But I don’t think, it’s not looking like today, probably closer to tomorrow that we’ll be looking at getting through all of those ballots,” she concluded.

Speaking to CBS’ “This Morning,” the secretary of state made a more specific prediction, estimating late Friday evening would be when they had results out to the public.

As the wait continues to drag on for the American people, Arizona has remained in flux since results began coming in Tuesday.

The state, which has 11 electoral votes, was called by Fox News and the Associated Press, two of the seven preeminent news agencies that call election results for the American public.


Fox was the first to call the state for Biden, and AP followed.

In the nearly two days since, the Trump campaign has furiously called on both news agencies to retract their call, saying the race is too close to call. Both have declined, and continue to publicly stand by their calls.

Other networks and outlets have not gone as far as Fox and AP, classifying the race as too close to call until more results come in.”
