As the US presidential election vote counting goes on, both the candidates are at a possibility to win the precedency, with Joe Biden being ahead in some key state electoral collage votes.
The US news outlets - largely vehement in their opposing of another term of President Donald Trump, has been covering the US presidential election since the voting began on 3 November. With reports of protests taking places in some parts of the US, President Trump making accusations of vote fraud and urging the supreme court to intervene the mail-in votes, the headlines across US media outlets have been trying to project a view of the election.
Here are some of the headlines from the leading US news outlets:
The Washington Post
The US capital based newspaper's headline was, "As Biden leads in electoral votes, Trump team launches legal blitz".
The news states that Democratic nominee Joe Biden needs only a few more electoral votes to claim victory over President Trump.
Arizona, Alaska, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Georgia and Nevada remain uncalled. In Arizona, Biden's lead narrowed overnight, leaving the Republican incumbent with a small path to victory in the key battleground state.
Meanwhile, Trump's lead in Georgia shrank, opening the possibility that Biden could pull an upset there, the report adds.
The New York Times
US east coast's the New York Times's headline was, "Undecided states prepare to release new vote counts after tense night", highlighting the tension from the previous night in the US.
It states that Joe Biden gained ground on President Trump in Georgia and Pennsylvania, but his lead diminished in Arizona.
The five states yet to declare a winner will release more results Thursday, offering a clearer picture of the state of the contest, it added.
The Los Angeles Times
US west coast's Los Angeles Times' headline was, "Trump's margin in Georgia is wafer-thin, with more votes left to count," pivoting on the crucial Electoral College votes in Georgia.
The newspaper adds that the margin between President Trump and Joe Biden in Georgia narrowed as poll workers in mostly Democratic-leaning counties tallied absentee ballots.
The Boston Globe
"With wins in Michigan and Wisconsin, Biden edges toward 270 Electoral College votes," was the headline of the Boston Globe.
Democrat Joe Biden was pushing closer to the 270 Electoral College votes needed to carry the White House Thursday, securing victories yesterday in the "blue wall" battlegrounds of Wisconsin and Michigan and narrowing President Donald Trump's path, the newspaper states.
It also adds that with just a handful of states still up for grabs, Trump tried to press his case in court in some key swing states, and that it was unclear if any of his campaign's legal maneuvering over balloting would succeed in shifting the race in his favor.
"Road to 270 comes down to a few thousand votes," is the headline that CNN published.
It says that there are only 50,000 ballots left to count in the tight Georgia race as Arizona, Nevada and Pennsylvania also work to finish tallying.
The Fox News's cover headline, "4 States in focus," states that the spotlight falls on battlegrounds in 2020 race to 270.
