Joe Biden says he now has ‘no doubt’ that he and Kamala Harris will win the US election, despite several states still being too close to call.
America remains in a state of uncertainty this morning, as the race to the White House continues.
There are still six states that are still too close to call, as we near 24 hours since the electoral vote tally has changed.

Democratic hopeful Joe Biden has maintained his narrow lead in the electoral vote count, ahead of Donald Trump 253 to 213.
However, counting is continuing in Pennsylvania, Georgia, North Carolina, Nevada, Arizona, and Alaska.
Commentators says it’s predominately mail-in ballots that still have to be counted, which has been disproportionately (in some cases 4 to 1) in favour of Joe Biden.
It means he’s closed that gap in the major swing state of Pennsylvania, with Trump now only 97,900 votes ahead and still eight percent of votes to be counted.
The Biden campaign is confident they will win Pennsylvania, with commentators now extremely focused on the ballots to count there.
“We continue to feel – the senator and I – continue to feel very good about where things stand,” Joe Biden told supporters in Delaware just now.
“We have no doubt that when the count is finished, Senator Harris and I will be declared the winners.
“So I ask everyone to stay calm, all people to stay calm. The process is working. The count is being completed, and we’ll know very soon.
“So thank you all for your patience, but we have to count the votes,” Biden said.
If Biden can flip that state, it will almost be a done deal for the White House. But no one is calling it just yet.
In North Carolina, Trump leads by 76,737, with five percent of the vote still to count.
In Georgia, Trump leads by 12,768 votes, with two percent of the ballots still to count.
Joe Biden is leading in Arizona, ahead by 67,906 votes with 14 percent of the ballots still to count.
He’s also leading in Nevada, ahead just 11,438 votes with 11 percent of the ballots still to count.
In Alaska, not even half of the ballots have been counted, but Trump has a dominant lead of 62.9 percent to 33 percent.
But it could still be days before all the votes are counted, and the waiting game continues.
