The United States goes to the polls today as the U.S. electorate is expected to choose between incumbent President and Republican candidate Donald Trump and Democratic candidate Joe Biden. So far 100 million people have already cast their vote in an early voting ballot, indicating that this election will see the largest number of people voting for the presidential election.
The battle between the two candidates for the Presidency of the United States continues. Both Joe Biden and Donald Trump held the last rallies in the most decisive states. National public opinion polls so far have given Joe Biden an advantage but the race is closer in swing states which are more likely to decide the outcome.
In his last campaign speech in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Democratic candidate Joe Biden said that tomorrow, a new day would dawn in the United States
“Look, we’ve been through a lot in this country since we announced. America is facing a confluence of crises unlike anything in living memory. We’re still in the battle for the soul of America. Decency, honour, respect, where has it gone with this president? Well, let me tell you something folks. Tomorrow’s the beginning of a new day. Tomorrow, we can put an end to a presidency that is left hardworking Americans out in the cold. Tomorrow, we can put an end to a president that’s divided this nation and fanned the flames of hate. Tomorrow, we can put an end to a presidency that has failed to protect this nation.”
In his last campaign speech in Michigan, Republican candidate Donald Trump dismissed indications of a likely win for his opponent Biden.
“And if I don’t sound like a typical Washington politician, it’s because…thank you, I’m not a politician. I don’t always play by the rules of Washington and the Washington establishment it’s because I was elected to fight for you and I fight for you harder than anyone has ever fought for you before. Joe Biden is bought and paid for by big tech, big media and powerful special interests. That’s why he takes in 300 million dollars. They’ve taken millions and millions of dollars for his crazy campaign and he’s not going to win. I really don’t believe he’s going to win because of this. Take a look. This is going on all over the country.”
Initial indications of the result are expected in the early hours of tomorrow morning as the results start to emerge in the so called deciding states.
