Democrat Joe Biden has carried Michigan and its 16 electoral votes, further dismantling Donald Trump's Rust Belt wall of support that helped deliver him the presidency four years ago.

The flip from red back to blue was a huge blow to Trump, whose victories in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania in 2016 sent him to the White House.

Biden also carried Wisconsin, though Pennsylvania hasn't been called yet. Biden's victory in Michigan pushes him to 264 Electoral College votes, six short of the 270 needed to win the White House.

Trump is at 214 electoral votes.

Nevada, which has six electoral votes, is among the states Democrat Hillary Clinton won in 2016 that hasn't yet been called.
