Topic Description:

After winning Florida and Iowa, US President Donald Trump is engaged in a tight electoral battle with Democrat Joe Biden on the three Northern battleground state — Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania — that could prove crucial in determining who wins the Oval office. Several states allow mailed-in votes to be accepted after Election Day, as long as they were postmarked by Tuesday. Democrats typically outperform Republicans in mail voting, while the GOP looks to make up ground in Election Day turnout. Meanwhile, Biden’s campaign said Wednesday it has legal teams standing by if Trump follows through with his threat to move court to stop the counting of votes. Trump, accusing Biden campaign of fraud, claimed he had already won the elections and further counting of votes was like committing a “fraud on the American public”. Both Trump and Biden have made expected gains in smaller states, and all eyes are on the key battleground states. Trump has won Florida, Texas, Iowa and Ohio. Biden, on the other hand, has won Arizona. At 4 pm IST, Biden had 238 electoral votes against Trump’s 213, according to The Associated Press (AP). A candidate needs 270 electoral votes to win the presidency.
