Baaghi TV: In most states in the United States, including Washington, polling time has ended, while the counting process is underway.
In exit polls so far, Biden has the upper hand over President Trump. Biden is leading with 238 electoral votes, while Trump is trailing with 213 electoral votes. In the White House, the focus is on the swing state of Florida and its 29 electoral college votes.
Both Republicans and Democrats have worked hard historically in Florida. Republican George W. Bush won in 2000 with only 537 votes out of a total of 6 million, because of such a small difference, state law requires a recount of votes, which led to a month-long legal battle in which the results of the 2000 election could not be known for more than a month after polling.
The battle ended with a controversial Supreme Court decision, which effectively got 259 Florida votes in favor of Bush. However, Gore won the popular vote with 8,895 votes. Once again, this electoral college is winning. Florida had close competition in 2012 (Barack Obama vs. Mitt Romney) and 2016 (Trump vs. Clinton) with a decisive lead of one percent.
Pennsylvania is also what most experts call a “make or break” presidential candidate. That means the state either makes or breaks the Presidential candidate and selects the winner. This means that, if a candidate wins Pennsylvania, he or she can get enough electoral votes to get the 270 magic number, which is 20 electoral votes. In 2016, Trump defeated Pennsylvania by just 44,292 votes, or 0.7 percentage points, compared to Clinton.
It was a huge victory for Trump because no Republican has won Pennsylvania since George HW. Bush in 1988. For Donald Trump, both Florida and Pennsylvania must win if he is to be re-elected for a second term.
On November 3rd, 2020, during election day in Brooklyn, New York, USA, people watch the preliminary results from Pennsylvania.
