Here’s Glenn Thrush at the New York Times on the how and why of that very slight Biden lead in Georgia:
The candidates had been locked in a virtual dead heat for much of Thursday, with each controlling about 49.4 percent of the vote, but with Trump maintaining a slight lead. As absentee ballots were counted early Friday, Biden pulled ahead with 917 more votes.
Flipping Georgia, a state last won by a Democrat in 1992, and where Trump won by more than 200,000 votes four years ago, would represent a significant political shift. But the state has shown signs of trending blue: When Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016, he did so by only five percentage points, a far slimmer margin than Republicans enjoyed in previous presidential elections.
John Legend, who performed in support of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in Pennsylvania at a campaign rally just two days before the election, has this to say about Georgia – and you’ll want your sound up:

Now, some people see the meanness, the bullying, the selfishness of Donald Trump and they mistake it for strength, a kind of twisted masculinity. Some see his greed and they mistake it for being good at business.
