Democratic challenger in the US presidential election Joe Biden says it is clear he is winning enough states to take the US presidency, despite key results still outstanding.
The former vice president told a news conference: “I am here to report that when the count is finished we believe we will be the winners.”

The final result will come down to key, undeclared battleground states: Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania.
Arizona, Wisconsin and Michigan are almost certain to be wins for the Democratic candidate. All were sates won by Trump in the 2016 election against Hilary Clinton.
Trump is so far projected to win 23 states, including Texas, Ohio and Florida, having outperformed pollsters’ predictions.
Earlier on Wednesday, the president alleged fraud, without offering evidence, and says he will launch a Supreme Court challenge. Biden’s campaign called Trump’s statement “outrageous”, adding: “The counting will not stop”.
