(Liberty Bell) – According to a new projection from one of the primary organizations whose election calls are relied upon by most prominent outlets covering an election, President Donald Trump has won the state of North Carolina in the still-contested 2020 presidential election.
This comes as part of a wave of relief Trump supporters began to feel on Tuesday as lawsuits geared up, Trump voter deficit numbers narrowed, AG Barr reportedly authorized officials to investigate allegations of fraud, and a bunch of people noticed that RealClearPolitics never called Pennsylvania, or the president-elect, at all.
The tide is turning, folks.
Decision Desk projected on Tuesday that President Trump won the key swing state after leading for the better part of the last week (oh, I get it…call Arizona within five seconds of the polls closing and wait a week to call North Carolina. Yeah, that makes sense).
According to Decision Desk, this will secure the state’s 15 electoral college points for Trump.
Additionally, the entity has projected Republican Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) as the victor in his race against Democrat challenger Cal Cunningham.

This would secure the Republicans’ 49 seats in the Senate they need to maintain a healthy majority in the upper chamber with three races still not yet called or in runoffs.
Trump has now received, according to DD’s unofficial count, 2.73 million votes in North Carolina.
Former President Joe Biden received 2.65 million.
According to the North Carolina Board of Elections executive director, Karen Brinson Bell, the reason the vote counting has taken so long is because the scheduled meetings to count the remainder of the votes were set before the election.
“It is safe to say that North Carolina’s numbers are not going to move until November 13th,” she told members of the media last week.
She also noted that most county board meetings were scheduled for Nov. 12 or Nov. 13.
Meanwhile, the Trump campaign still has a much bigger battle to fight across the nation in several legal—and potentially judicial—skirmishes across the nation.
As the Trump campaign has lawsuits ongoing in Pennsylvania and Arizona, investigations and calls for a recount in Wisconsin, this takes North Carolina out of the picture and placed squarely in Trump’s column.
What you’re hearing from the media is spin.
It is far from decided as to whether Biden is the winner.
And if we know anything about President Donald Trump, he’s going to fight tirelessly to ensure that if he goes down, it’s not without the fight of his lifetime.
