The early voting for the election is setting historical records due to pandemic prevention, and if it continues at this rate, more than 100 million votes will have been cast by Tuesday’s election day.
According to CNN, nearly 92 million Americans have already voted, equivalent to two-thirds of the total turnout in the 2016 election and approximately 43 percent of registered voters nationwide.
In states like Texas, more people have already voted than in the election between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
Precisely in this state, the Supreme Court has dismissed a Republican Party lawsuit to invalidate 127,000 votes cast in advance in the city of Houston because it was done in a format that allowed citizens to vote from their car.
After some initial statements in which he demanded that the result of the elections should be known on election night itself, Trump has backed down and has assured that he will wait for the votes to be counted before claiming victory if he is the most voted.
In most Rust Belt states, key to determining victory in these elections, absentee ballots are counted after face-to-face votes, so results could vary greatly as the count progresses, with more Republicans expected to vote face-to-face on the same Tuesday and more Democrats expected to vote by mail.
This Monday, Trump plans to attend five events, each held in four different states: North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin.
In his actions on Sunday, the president has defended his economic management and accused Biden of being a “puppet of Castro,” while his followers have asked him to fire the top scientist in the fight against the coronavirus in the country, Anthony Fauci.
For his part, Democratic candidate Joe Biden campaigned this Sunday in his native Pennsylvania, a key state for his presidential aspirations, and focused his speech on the mismanagement of the pandemic by Donald Trump and his government team.
Biden highlighted his proposals to create jobs and raise taxes on the rich in a message to the working class in these key ‘Rust Belt’ states, including Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin.
The candidate will remain in his home state this Monday and will be accompanied by his vice presidential candidate, Kamala Harris, and rock star Lady Gaga, who will perform at the final event of the former vice president’s campaign.
