On the eve of official voting day, the president tries to reverse the polls in Wisconsin, Michigan, North Carolina and Pennsylvania | Biden will be in Ohio and Pennsylvania and Obama in Georgia and Florida | Anticipated participation exceeds 68% of the total of 2016
There is only one day left for the elections in the United States and the candidates continue at an unbridled pace to try to convince the few undecided that may remain and mobilize as many voters as possible to the polls in an electoral cycle that can break turnout figures . As of Monday, more than 94 million Americans have already voted, more than 68% of those who voted in total in 2016.
Today ends an atypical presidential campaign marked by the pandemic and ends an electoral cycle in which polarization has reached unprecedented levels in recent times in the United States. Meanwhile, some cities reinforce security due to fear of possible disturbances in the Election night and the president continues to stir up the specter of fraud and prepare the ground to answer the vote count, if it is not favorable to them. On Sunday, he insisted on his Twitter account that the election should “be resolved on November 3,” highly unlikely in a year in which there has been record early turnout. Republicans, who trust that the majority of their voters will cast their ballot on Tuesday, as is traditional, flirt with the dangerous game of proclaiming their candidate the winner once the recount concludes that same day, as Pablo Guimón explains in this article.
The Democratic candidate, Joe Biden, who this Monday will be in the pendulum states of Ohio and Pennsylvania, leads the race by 6.7 points, according to the average of the Real Clear Politics polls. Biden is a favorite. However, Donald Trump, who makes his ‘final sprint’ with five events in Wisconsin, Michigan, North Carolina and Pennsylvania, retains a choice of six to win.
