Democratic nominee Joe Biden is leading in four out of five key states, CNN has reported. Meanwhile, the Associated Press has advised everyone to “chill” after tweeting that it continues to count votes in the presidential election and that it has not declared a winner.

“When the AP does declare a winner, it will be tweeted from @AP and @AP_Politics,” AP tweeted on Friday.

According to CNN, Biden is leading in Pennsylvania (0.1%), Georgia (0.0%), Nevada (+1.7%) and Arizona (+1.4%) while Trump leads in North Carolina with +1.4%.

Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden is on the brink of becoming the next US president.

CNN has reported that airspace over Biden’s home has been restricted after “national defense airspace” has been put in place over his home in Wilmington, Delaware.

The Federal Aviation Administration posted the Temporary Flight Restriction on Wednesday, the day after the general election. The notice shows the one mile radius no-fly zone is active until next Wednesday morning.

Similarly, airspace has been restricted over the nearby Chase Center, where possibly Biden will deliver his victory speech in case he wins the presidential election.

While AP has not called the win for Biden, this move is being interpreted as the federal government preparing for a presidential transition.

Earlier Biden has taken lead in Pennsylvania with 5,587 votes. The state has 20 electoral college votes up for grabs, which could crown Biden as present should he win the state.

Commenting on his likely loss in Pennsylvania, President Donald Trump who is seeking re-election, once again has spread baseless concerns about the integrity of the vote count in Philadelphia.

“Philadelpiha has got a rotten history on election integrity,” Trump said in a tweet, attributing the quote to Stuart Varney of Fox Business.

Pennsylvania’s Republican senator, Pat Toomey, has disputed Trump’s claims of fraud.

The race is incredibly close, with Biden on 3,295,319 votes, and Trump on 3,289,725.

The Democratic nominee is also currently leading narrowly in Georgia and Nevada.

AP and Fox News have called Arizona for Biden, however, Trump campaign still believes they can win this state.
