US President Donald Trump seems to have the wind in the presidential election. The incumbent president was assigned the swingstates Ohio, Texas and previously Florida by American media around 6:00 a.m. Biden opposes Arizona, a state that went to the Republicans four years ago. Minnesota, which accounts for ten electors, probably falls to the side of the Democrats.
Take a look at the results known so far in this article.
In order to win the presidential election, a candidate needs 270 or more electors. Crucial states like Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Iowa probably need more days to count all the votes.
Challenger Joe Biden had mainly put his hopes on the states of Ohio and Florida to avenge the loss of his party mate Hillary Clinton in 2016. He took the lead early in both states, but the Republicans managed to catch up. Ohio is also symbolically important for Trump and his party. No Republican candidate ever became president without winning that state.
The Democrats must now do well in the north of the country to have another chance to win the presidential elections. Voters in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin seem to be making the decisive factor just like four years ago. Iowa is going to the Republicans just like the last election.
Blue golf stays out of
anyone who was counting on a blue golf or the Democrats landslide, comes from a cold carnival home. Trumps doing it properly. It leads to a neck-to-neck race. According to American media, he won the elections in South Carolina, Missouri and Kansas. These states provide 9, 10 and 6 electors respectively. In swingstate Georgia and in Ohio, Trump is pretty good, just like in Florida. Profit in the southeastern state yields Trump 29 electoral. Less surprising was Trumps win in Idaho. In that state there are 4 electors to earn.
Republican Donald Trump got the most votes in Texas, predicts news channel Fox News. The southern state has been going to Republican presidential candidates over the past decades. Fox News is the first major medium to venture to predict the election results in Texas.
Biden strikes back
The Democrat Joe Biden wins in the swing state New Hampshire, predicts news channel NBC. In that state, four electoral men can be divided. Democrate Hillary Clinton won Donald Trump in 2016. Biden also wins in California, the state where more than 10 percent of voters can be divided. The states of Washington and Oregon are also going to the Democrat, predicting American media.
But Biden will have to win even more if he wants to end up in the White House. According to Fox News, the Democrat won in Arizona (11 voters). That would be the first state to take Biden on Trump compared to the battle four years ago. While most major media were still waiting, Fox News called the Democratic candidate to be the winner after counting 73 percent of the votes. Biden then stood at 53.6 percent, Trump at 45.1 percent.
His team still has faith in it. Democratic campaign employee Rufus Gifford tweeted Were going to win around 6:00 a.m. Dutch time. According to his campaign team, Biden will come up with a statement at 6:30 a.m.
Preliminary results of the US presidential elections are in line with expectations in a series of states. Major news media reports that incumbent President Donald Trump can count on profits in Oklahoma (7 voters), West Virginia (5), Mississippi (6), Alabama (9), Kentucky (8), Arkansas (6), Wyoming (3), North Dakota (3), South Dakota (3), Indiana (11) and Tennessee (11). In Utah (6) Trump goes well in the lead.
Voters in Virginia (thirteen voters) and Vermont (three electors) have voted for Biden in the majority of US media. He would also lead in New York (29 voters), Illinois (20), New Jersey (14), Massachusetts (11), Maryland (10), Colorado (9), Connecticut (7), New Mexico (5), Rhode Island (4), Delaware (3), Washington D.C. (3) and Maine (2).
These outcomes do not yet contain any big surprises. None of the states were considered as swing state, as they are called the states where, according to opinion pollers, it could go in all directions. Yet the first results point in Trumps favor. According to several gambling sites, he is now a favorite, while Biden was by far.
In the crucial state of Florida, the first results point to a win for Trump. While 91 percent of the votes are counted, Trump is slightly ahead of its Democratic rival (50.7 percent versus 48.3 percent). For large American media, that margin is still too small to make a candidate a winnerin Florida. The New York Times now gives Trump a 95 percent chance of winning it. Trumps campaign team has already claimed victory. The last votes in the southern state, which also went to Trump in 2016, are still counted.
In North Carolina, four years ago for Trump, Joe Biden is slightly ahead of the president, while three-quarters of the votes are counted.
Kentucky and Indiana usually vote Republican. Besides, Vice President Mike Pence is from Indiana. In West Virginia, Trump achieved his biggest victory of all US states in 2016. Over two-thirds of the voters voted for him at that time.
The zogheten swingstates are decisive for the outcome. This election is expected to be mainly Michigan, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Florida, Georgia and Iowa. There are still a million votes to be counted in Pennsylvania. It is expected that the outcome, which may be decisive, will be waiting for a while. In Wisconsin the results are also waiting for a while, because there was an unexpected lot of votes in Detroit. In Michigan, the results would be known on Wednesday night.
Also the usually red Texas is at stake. That state has to win Trump. Texas stands for 38 voters and voted in the near past actually always Republican. The last democrat to win was a Jimmy Carter, which was in 1976, and since then Texas has been voting red. Obama couldnt win, neither could Bill Clinton. Sure for Trump so, youd say, but in the polls, its not exactly an ABC. Trump does lead in the poll of polls (48% versus 46%), but the differences are too small to give the incumbent a feeling of peace.
