Elections in the United States begin to put their last two weeks of campaign on track, and candidates Donald Trump and Joe Biden design their rallies with the aim of winning in the so-called ‘hinge states’, where the number of voters for both candidates is very similar, but which could be decisive for next November 3.
Polls so far favor Democratic Party candidate Joe Biden by at least six points of difference with Trump. The difference came to be around fourteen points according to some polls, but the current White House tenant has been regaining confidence.
Measurements have been made by RearClearPolitics, and reflect the intention of direct voting, that is, the total percentage of votersHowever, due to the peculiar American electoral system, which has similarities to the Spanish one, the candidate with the most votes is not proclaimed president, but the one with the most representation in each of the 50 states.
So much so, that Hilary Clinton herself won 3 million more votes than Trump in the 2016 electionBut in terms of states, Trump won in thirty states and Clinton in twenty, so he ended up losing the elections and disappearing from political life in the Democratic party.
The states that show the most indecision according to the polls are Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Wisconsin and Michigan. The five play a decisive role in the elections, as it already happened in 2016, where Trump ended up winning in all and therefore obtained the 83 corresponding delegates, which allowed him to make a difference and become president of the United States.
Finally, the Republican president expects something similar to happen to the last elections, where the distance in the polls was shortened as the voting date approached until they were almost even, so that finally Donald Trump ended up winning the elections.
