As we get so close to the end of the election. Tight results are being shown. However, with such a fierce and tight election, we know who is leading and who isn’t.
According to The Guardian, the gap is narrow but is in favour of Democrats presidential candidate and former president Joe Biden leading with 264 electoral votes out of 270 electoral votes needed to win the seat.
Donald Trump on the other hand has gained 214 electoral votes.
A lot of mail-in ballots have been filed while others had a stand out vote. As both sides clashed for citizens’ votes, Joe Biden has a total of 72,212,272 votes and 68,727,384 votes for President Trump.
Democrats around the world may start to jubilant but their flagship Joe Biden has urged their voters to stay calm as they witness every vote being counted.
No clear statement has been made by Donald Trump, personally, but reports have it that his supporters have prepared themselves ahead of any unfavourable results.
Protests have started in some States with the intention that some votes are not being counted.
The Trump Campaign Team has made a clear statement that they will appeal the support of court to start a recounting of votes in some States like Michigan and Wisconsin, where they have already crowned Biden victorious, Pennsylvania is likely to be part of the States if the end result is unfavourable.
Millions of votes are still to be counted, including in key battleground states. In addition, AP has called Arizona’s 11 votes for Biden while other news organisations regard the race as still too close to call “Which states haven’t been called yet?” The Guardian reports.
In an early encounter with the media, Georgia State Secretary, Brad Raffensperger, stated that the State of Georgia is doing everything possible to make people come to the realization that there is no fraud crime committed in their counting.
Georgia is one of the crucial states we must take note of, Trump needs to win this State to his votes, also Pennsylvania as well.
