US Election 2020: Donald Trump has taken the critical milestone states of Florida, Texas, Ohio, and Iowa, however, Joe Biden has won Arizona, the Press reported.
Because of the numerous postal ballots cast in this political election, a few states’ results may not be known for quite a long time or even weeks. More than 100m Americans cast a ballot early or by post, highlighting a record turnout.
Democrats’ expectations of dealing with the Senate are blurring after Republicans Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Joni Ernst of Iowa won their re-election campaigns. Control of the Senate may boil down to a Georgia main election that has gone to a run-off to be held in January. Three Senate seats have flipped: Democrats expelled Republican occupants in Colorado and Arizona, while Republicans increased a seat in Alabama.
Trump claimed election victory and blamed Democrats for fraud as key states kept on including a large number of mail-in ballots.
“This is a fraud on the American public. This is an embarrassment to this country. We were getting ready to win this election. Frankly, we did win this election,” President Trump said from the White House.
“This is a major fraud on our nation,” Trump said.
Benjamin L. Ginsberg, a long-term Republican political election lawyer who co-led the Presidential Commission on Election Administration, said Wednesday that President Trump should “let all the votes be counted,” following his assaults on genuine vote checking efforts.
“If you have objections to either the particular ballots or to the process, then you have remedies after the fact from each state individual contests laws or recount laws if the margins are close enough,” Ginsberg said special election coverage.
“But these are legally cast ballots, Jake, or at least will be determined to be legally cast ballots by the appropriate local county and state officials. And for a president to say we are going to disenfranchise those legally cast ballots — it really is extraordinary.”
“We believe we’re on track to win this election,” Biden told a crowd of supporters.
“It’s not my place or Donald Trump’s place to say who won this election. That’s the decision of the American people. But I’m optimistic about this outcome,” Biden said.
Biden said his campaign is “confident about Arizona,” “feeling really good about Michigan,” and that Democrats are “still in the game in Georgia.”
He acknowledged that it will require some time for all votes to be counted but said he’s clear he will win Pennsylvania.
