US Presidential Election 2020

Americans will decide the fate of incumbent President Donald Trump and former Vice President & Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden as the voting to choose the next President of the United States began on Tuesday.

The first ballots were cast in Dixville Notch and Millsfield, towns in the northeastern state of New Hampshire. Polling has also opened in New York, New Jersey, Virginia. Whereas, other states will open ballots early morning according to their time zones.

Either Trump or Biden must acquire over 50 per cent of the 538 electoral college vote. Therefore, each candidate must get a minimum of 270 electoral votes to win the presidency.

As the rallies end a day before the US elections, Joe Biden said “I’m running as a proud Democrat, but I will govern as an American president. I will work with Democrats and Republicans, and I’ll work as hard for those who don’t support me as for those who do. Because that’s the job of a president.”

Meanwhile, Trump posted a video of him dancing on campaign rallies with background music of YMCA by the Village People with caption ‘VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!’

Joe Biden is currently leading Donald Trump in the national polls, but leading in polls does not guarantee victory. Hillary Clinton also had a clear lead over Trump in the polls for almost the entire 2016 campaign. She ended up losing in the electoral college.
