Washington: After a campaign full of resentment and fear, Americans made a decision on Tuesday between President Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden to choose a leader to lead a country that suffered It was struck by a pandemic that has killed more than 231,000 people, killed millions and reshaped daily life.
Nearly 100 million Americans voted early. It is now that voters on Election Day have finished their work, ending the campaign that was subverted by the coronavirus and defined by the tensions who can best resolve this issue. Each candidate declared that another was simply not fit to lead a country that is fighting COVID-19 and facing basic issues of racial justice and economic fairness.
When Biden entered Election Day, he won in a variety of ways, while Trump pursued in multiple battlefield states, but obtained a narrow but viable path to win 270 electoral college votes. The control of the Senate is also at risk:
If Biden seizes the White House to gain control of all seats in Washington for the first time in a decade, the Democrats must win three seats. The House of Representatives is expected to continue to be controlled by the Democratic Party.
Over the next four years, voters will choose between two very different views of the United States, face it bravely, and vote for the threat of the virus. The record early voting-and the skirmish of the law on how to calculate-attracted Trump’s inability to support allegations, and Trump refused to guarantee that he would honor the election results.
Fighting to the end for every vote, Biden was headed to Philadelphia and his native Scranton on Tuesday as part of a closing get-out-the-vote effort before awaiting election results in his hometown of Wilmington, Delaware. His running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, was visiting Detroit, a heavily Black city in battleground Michigan. Both of their spouses were headed out, too, as the Democrats reached for a clear victory.
Trump plans to visit his campaign headquarters in Virginia after appearing in the morning on his favorite online Fox News Channel. He invited hundreds of supporters to an election night party in the East Room of the White House.
This difficult election has made voters on both sides eager to move on.
“I just want it to be done,” said Starlet Holden, a 26-year-old medical biller from New York City, who planned to vote for Biden but spoke for many on both sides of the campaign.
On their final full day on the campaign trail, Trump and Biden broke sharply over the mechanics of the vote itself while visiting the most fiercely contested battleground, Pennsylvania.
