Victory seems certain as Joe Biden leads as vote count continues in major battleground states.
Upon addressing the nation on Friday night from Delaware he encouraged the people to wait patiently and remain calm. He said: “My fellow Americans, we don’t have a final declaration of victory yet, but the numbers tell us it’s clear. Tell us a clear and convincing story. We are going to win this race.”
It comes toward the end of one more day of vote tallying and excitement across America, with Joe Biden holding on to the strong position and Donald Trump not willing to let go of the presidential power, regardless of the Bidens lead growing in major swing states.
As tallying is going to be carried out till Sunday, Biden said they weren’t going to wait around for the eventual outcome to start working. Indeed, Bernie Sanders posted a video following the president’s speech, sketching out the Democrat’s bold progressive agenda for the initial 100 days of the following Congress with Joe Biden in the White House.
On the other hand, Donald Trump, is not willing to take defeat so easily, saying that Biden ought not “illegitimately” pronounce triumph as lawful procedures were just starting.
Prior, a statement was released by the Trump’s campaign declaring that they “will pursue this process through every aspect of the law”.
It was reported that in a private meeting the president lashed out at his legal counselors for not being readied while requesting that they find him “killers” who could take the battle to the US Supreme Court.
False electoral fraud claims are continually being pushed by the president since the past few days, leading to Trumps supporters taking the streets to protest against the results, asking “every vote to be counted.”
Why has no one called the election yet?
The reason that the election has not be called yet by anyone is because in order to call the election, there should be 99.5% precision of the results to be correct.
“What we’re doing is scrubbing through the vote and making sure Joe Biden’s going to get a comfortable enough lead but also looking at the recount threshold, of which he’ll need about 33,000 votes.” said John Lapinsky, the network’s director of elections at NBC news.
“What we’re really… looking at is how many of those remaining votes are going to be counted – a lot of people are assuming all of them are going to be counted and usually they count the hard votes last.”
According to Mr Lapinsky, even though the results are coming out in favor of Biden, there still has to be full certainty that the results are authentic.
