The moment of Tuesday’s fate – and what could become a long vote by crushing the post – will decide whether the Americans will reject Trump after just one term or whether they will continue their shameless presidency for another four years.
On Monday, Biden will campaign in Ohio – a later addition to his list of destinations – and in his home state of Pennsylvania, which could be a turning point in the run-up to the elections. Trump will make a busy Air Force One trip through North Carolina, Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania in a final attempt to save the states he won four years ago and block Biden’s entry into the White House.
Biden argues that Trump’s denial and contempt for the pandemic, which has killed and exacerbated more than 230,000 Americans every day, should be reason to refuse to re-elect the president.
The truth is, to defeat the virus, we have to defeat Donald Trump first. It’s the virus, Biden said Sunday in Philadelphia.
Biden and Trump both have a chance to win.
The Democratic candidate came a distant second in national polls on the last day of the campaign and in states far enough away to open several strips for the 270 ballots needed to win the White House, including across the Sunbelt and the Midwest.
We are definitely on the road to victory, Biden senior advisor Anita Dunn told Jake Tapper Sunday at CNN’s State of the Union. Biden hopes that Tuesday night’s victories in states like Arizona, Florida, Georgia and North Carolina will send an early signal that he is on his way to victory.
Relying on the battlefields of the Midwest, such as Michigan and Wisconsin, where he expects good results, may take longer and lead to a controversial outcome that threatens the president. Trump has already tried to discredit absentee ballots that take longer to be counted, while Republicans in Texas have tried – so far without success – to discredit the ballots presented in the Houston passage.

The acquisition, although he is after Biden, also has a clear, if not inferior, chance of winning 270 votes, and is counting on the battlefield he won with his campaign four years ago to falter, promising a strong voter turnout on election day. The president can’t afford to give up states like Florida, Georgia or North Carolina and has to face Biden in the Midwest, the crucial area in his victory over Hillary Clinton, where he fights four years later. Nevertheless, the president is within reach in a number of crucial polls, and Democrats are haunted by the idea that he could once again defy expectations and make an amazing comeback on election day.
Capricorn fools the virus and casts a shadow on election night
The president spent the weekend in a luxury campaign in which he diverted responsibility for the mistreatment of Covid-19, accused the doctors of blowing up deadly bills, and claimed that Biden would impose new blockades in the country if he won.
During a rally in Florida on Sunday night, the Trump Crowd Fire Fauci started singing when the president complained that everyone had heard too much about the pandemic.
Don’t tell anyone, but let me wait until after the election. Mr Fauci has been director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases since 1984. It is respected worldwide and has played an important role in the fight against HIV/AIDS and the Ebola virus. In an interview with the Washington Post on Saturday, Fauci said that the United States could not be in a better position because the fear of a winter accident on Covida-19, which is now coming out, contradicts Trump’s claims that the disease will inevitably disappear.
Trump began his day on Sunday in snowy Michigan and then embarked on a journey through Iowa, North Carolina, Georgia and Florida in a grueling race that not only showed his stamina but also his contempt – and his large crowd – for the social aloof measures recommended by his own government to stop the spread of Covida-19.
During a rally in North Carolina on Sunday, he again falsely claimed that the United States had completed their fight against the virus and that the vaccines he hoped to introduce for the elections were there.
The president bets that the stream of pro-Trampa voters who were unable to pass the polls will accept his hyperbolic warnings of a takeover by radical Democrats if Biden wins and his condemnation of riots in cities where he accuses left-wing villains.
Fault! The file name is not specified.
But the air of anticipation floats above one of the most surrealistic elections in modern American history. Reports of voting delays in some critical battleground states increased fears of protracted legal duels between campaigns if elections were to be closed.
The extra time and complexity of the election process can give the chairman room to question the fairness of the election he or she has warned about, but only if he or she is the winner.
In Texas, the state Supreme Court denied a petition from a group of Republicans to invalidate nearly 127,000 ballots cast in Harris County, a very Democratic district near Houston. Republicans also filed a lawsuit in federal court, which will hold an emergency hearing in Houston on Monday morning.
Meanwhile, the FBI has opened an investigation into a caravan of Trump Supporters after a campaign bus from Biden Harris, Texas.
And the president added to the concern over the disputed elections the suspicion of a perfectly normal counting practice after election night – a likely event this year, as some states can’t even start counting the ballots for election day.
I think it’s terrible when ballots can be collected after an election, Trump said, referring to the critical state of North Carolina, which he’s trying to keep in his column despite the demographic changes that give hope to democracies.
I think it’s terrible if people or states are allowed to vote for a long time after the elections, because that can only lead to one thing, and that’s very bad. You know how it is. I think it’s a very dangerous and terrible thing, Trump told reporters.
In another ominous remark, the president said that once the vote in states like Pennsylvania is over, we will go with our lawyers once we have appealed against a Supreme Court decision that upholds the decision of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court so that the ballots can be counted three days after election day.
However, elections are not limited in time – they depend on counting all the votes.
Concerns about the early declaration of victory
But Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan said she is concerned that Trump might try to announce a victory in her state if he took the lead on election day before the ballots are counted and sent.
I think that it is a very real opportunity and that is why we try to make sure that all journalists understand the number of votes coming in as we have never seen before and that it takes time to count the votes, she said.
And it’s more important that we get an accurate count than a quick one, which may not be accurate.
On Sunday, Biden tried to convince the black voters, who historically tend to vote on election day, that they should come to the cities and suburbs in sufficient numbers to overtake Trump, the dominant rural center.
He participated in the Soul to Vote campaign at the Philadelphia Baptist Church and then drove a car race. He described the unequal impact of the virus on minorities and pointed to the trump card in the cradle of the American experience as a threat to the fundamental freedoms of Americans.
Every generation must fight to preserve democracy. I never thought we’d have to fight this hard, Biden.
His roommate, Californian Senator Kamala Harris, travelled to North Carolina and Georgia, two states where the Democrats believe they can win, thanks in part to strong African-American participation.
Don’t let anyone take away our strength. Let’s not stop, let’s not be silent, the stakes are too high and the ancestors expect much more from us, said Harris in North Carolina.
