Luntz’s comments on “Squawk Box” come as the outcome of Tuesday’s election still hangs in the balance, with neither candidate having earned the necessary 270 electoral votes to win the presidential race, according to NBC News. Biden currently has 224 electoral votes compared with Trump’s 213, NBC News reports.

“Donald Trump must win Pennsylvania if he’s to get to 270,” Luntz said. Pennsylvania has 20 electoral votes. While Trump currently holds a lead in the Keystone State, NBC News considers the race too early to call as a significant number of mail-in votes remain uncounted. Luntz said he believes those mail-in votes will favor Biden heavily.

“I believe when all the votes are counted, this is going to be dead even, which is why it’s going to take at least the next six hours and as much as another 24 hours before we know who is the winner,” Luntz added. “It’s going to be so close in Pennsylvania that it may require a state recount.”
