Joe Biden, the representative of the Democrat, is only one step away from winning the presidential position. Biden is currently leading over Donald Trump in critical battlegrounds.
Biden is leading in important states
A massive number of ballots delay the announcement of a new president, but Biden currently is leading in important states. Some of them are Pennsylvania, Nevada, and Georgia. He is only 6 ballots away from 270 Electoral College votes needed to take the White House.
In Pennsylvania, Biden led Trump by more than 27,000 votes, and in Nevada, the number is 22,000 votes. Whether Biden or Trump wins this election, the U.S. will face historic challenges such as surging the pandemic and political polarization.
As the vote continues, Biden eventually has a better opportunity than Donald Trump to become the next president of the U.S. The representative of Democrat defeated Trump in must-win Pennsylvania astoundingly. In Nevada, although the victory is narrow, Biden has claimed another urgent winning.
Trump’s skepticism about the voting process
The current president, Donald Trump, said that he was doubtful about the voting process. Trump and his lawyers were skeptical about how Biden got his victory in Pennsylvania.
“This is a case when they are trying to steal an election, they are trying to rig an election,” Trump said from the podium of the White House briefing room. On Twitter, Trump wrote this statement “Joe Biden should not wrongfully claim the office of the President. I could make that claim also. Legal proceedings are just now beginning!”
The president believed that he won on the election night, and somehow, all of his votes disappeared in one night. Whereas Biden trusts that the process is working properly. “I ask everyone to stay calm. The process is working,” Biden said. “It is the will of the voters. No one, not anyone else who chooses the president of the United States of America.”
Maryland GOP Gov. Larry Hogan also defended the voting process.
“There is no defense for the President’s comments tonight undermining our Democratic process. America is counting the votes, and we must respect the results as we always have before,” Hogan said.
“But to just make accusations of the election being stolen and widespread fraud without providing any evidence, I thought was really bad for our democratic process and it was something I had never seen in my lifetime,” Hogan added.
Contrastingly, Ari Fleischer, a former aide to President George W. Bush, protected Trump’s behavior. “I wish people talked with less bombast. But I’m not going to fault the president for it,” Fleischer said.
“Be gentle about Trump’s behavior,” he urged. “When I watched it last night and watched these heads explode I just rolled my eyes. … We’ve always been a noisy democracy.”
Since the beginning of the election, Joe Biden impressively led the voting. Even if Trump is hesitant about the integrity of the voting, he could not deny that he was way behind. The counting progress is continuing, but Biden is absolutely only inches away from the presidential chair in the White House. He has waited for 47 years for this moment, and he is closer to it than ever.
