Thursday 3 pm update: Biden netting votes even in Red PA counties

This Pennsylvania update shows why Biden will win:

1. Even PA’s reddest counties like Carbon are still netting more votes for Biden, because the absentee/mail is solidly Dem everywhere in PA.
H/t @SteveKornacki:

2. The Philadelphia absentee votes are coming in for Biden at 90%-10% or better, at an even bigger turnout than for Obama 2008/12. And that’s the lion’s share of remaining ballots.

3. PA Dem officials tracking the vote totals project a Biden win by 175,000 overall. See image below.

4. Nevada is going to called for Biden soon to get Biden to 259 electoral votes beyond any realistic recount or legal challenge, just like where Pennsylvania is headed: a politically clear and legally unimpeachable count for Biden.
