The counting of votes in the 2020 presidential election continues in the United States. As of the morning of November 5, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is ahead of his opponent, the current US President Donald Trump.
According to the CNN calculations, Biden has 50.5% of votes and Trump has 48%. For an overall victory in the elections, Biden must win another state - Nevada (6 electoral votes) or Pennsylvania (20 electoral votes). It became known yesterday that Biden confidently bypassed Trump in Michigan, gaining 50.5% of votes. This state gives 16 electoral votes.
At the same time, incumbent President Donald Trump said on his Twitter page that he considers himself the winner in Michigan and three other states - Pennsylvania, Georgia and North Carolina, where the vote count continues.
In addition, the Trump campaign asked the U.S. Supreme Court to intervene in the ballot counting in Pennsylvania.
In his turn, Joe Biden has already launched a transition website "so that the Biden-Harris administration can hit the ground running" even though votes are still being counted, as Daily Mail reports.
As we reported earlier, the record number of the electorate voted for candidate for the presidency in the U.S. Joe Biden ever in the history of the United States.
The record number of votes is spotted at the U.S. elections for the first time ever and Joe Biden gets them. Almost 70 million citizens voted for him. Trump received the votes of over 67 million Americans and it is more than in 2016.
