Margins of victory in close states in the US Presidential Election in November 2020

In the election in November, President-Elect Joe Biden's margin of victory over President Donald Trump was 2.78% in Michigan and 2.39% in Nevada. Those are the two largest margins in states that Trump and his cronies have been challenging since the count shifted in Biden's favor in the predicted "blue shift" in the days following Election Day, with the other four states having closer margins (Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Arizona, and Georgia, from largest to smallest). But if those results deserve to be challenged on the grounds of alleged voter fraud, so does the result in North Carolina, where Trump's margin of victory was 1.35%, but no Republicans are challenging the results there.
