Election Day is becoming election week because the counting of votes keeps across the U.S with initial outcomes showing tight races in several key battleground states.
Applicants want 270 electoral university votes to secure the presidency. Online polls and predictions projects President Donald Trump currently has 214, while Former Vice President Joe Biden has 264, along with Wisconsin, in which online poll is characterizing him as the apparent winner because the vote is very close and has not yet been certified.
Both Trump, the republican incumbent, and Biden, his democratic challenger, addressed the country within the early hours of Wednesday morning, each expressing self assurance in the race for the White House.
By Wednesday evening, Biden again brought remarks urging endurance, but Trump remained out of public view, taking to twitter instead to spout baseless claims of voter fraud and falsely call races for himself, at the same time as his legal professionals waged legal battles to halt vote counting in key states.
Joe Biden, with a comfortable lead in the popular vote has also broken the record for obtaining the maximum votes ever solid for a U.S presidential candidate with greater than 70 million and counting, in a political race that has broken early vote records and is on track to overshadow the 138 million who went to the surveys in 2016.
