WASHINGTON (AP) — Facing the potential for narrow losses in multiple battlegrounds, President Donald Trump might have a tough time persuading the Supreme Court to take up his call to intervene and prevent Joe Biden from becoming president.

Trump could need the court’s help in two or more states.

That’s an unlikely scenario that is far different from what took place in 2000, the only time the court has effectively settled a presidential election.

Twenty years ago, the entire fight was over Florida’s electoral votes and involved a recount as opposed to trying to halt the initial counting of ballots.
