According to NBC News, President Donald Trump is expected to gain Florida’s 29 votes against Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. On Wednesday, Trump got 5.65 million votes, contrary to 5.27 million for Joe Biden, a 51.2 percent gap to 47.8 percent.
On the other hand, according to Fox News, Joe Biden takes the lead in Arizona, securing a Southwest battleground state formerly carried by President Trump. From 53.7% to 45.1%, with 73% of the precincts reporting. The Grand Night of the Grand Canyon State of the former Democratic Vice President nets him 11 electoral votes, with 270 expected to secure the White House.
In his speech to Delaware supporters, Biden urged patience as votes were tallied and expressed faith that he would eventually win. In contrast, President Donald Trump met supporters early Wednesday from the White House. Trump sought to secure the presidential race, even though states across the U.S. began to count ballots.
Pres. Trump, whose first candidacy fuelled efforts to develop a wall along the US-Mexican border, earned Arizona over Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in 2016. However, according to RealClearPolitics’ average poll, the state was a virtual toss-up to Election Day 2020, with Biden keeping a lead of less than one percentage point.
Trump Wrongly Declared His Win in the Presidency
President Trump talked to the White House nation around 2 a.m. when the election result was still uncertain. He declared wins in states that had not yet been determined and depicted the organized counting of millions of lawfully cast ballots as an illegal attempt to win the election.
The President stated that the results were “phenomenal,” referring to Florida and Texas anticipated victories, saying that he dominated Georgia while the results are still trickling. The President has declared victory in North Carolina, which is now a toss-up.
The President’s claim that ballots are already being counted in the battlefield states is inaccurate. Millions of votes were cast early in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin and are yet to be tallied. Both states recognize mail-in ballots postmarked by Election Day. The time limits for receiving mail-in votes have been expanded for each country, and the Supreme Court has accepted the extensions.
