With multiple networks calling the state of Michigan for former Vice President Joe Biden, the Democrat is closer than ever to vanquishing President Donald Trump to history as a one-termer.

We’re still waiting for more numbers out of Nevada, Georgia, North Carolina and Pennsylvania, but securing Michigan — a crucial “Blue Wall” state that Trump won in an upset in 2016 — puts a second term nearly out of reach for the President.

That doesn’t mean the President’s campaign isn’t doing all it can to muddy the results. It has promised to file for a recount in Wisconsin, falsely declared victory in Pennsylvania and pursued legal action in Michigan, where it also sent supporters to bang on the windows of a vote-counting center on Wednesday.
