USA NEWS – According to information received by World News Superfast, Corona has also changed the trend of voting for the US presidential election. Millions of voters are refraining from visiting crowded polling booths. However, he is also excited for the tough fight between President Donald Trump and Democratic candidate Joe Biden. This is the reason that pre poll voting has made a new record this time.
According to an independent vote monitor
The number of pre-election ballots in 2020 has surpassed such votes cast in elections held 4 years ago. This is the figure 9 days before the final voting to be held on 3 November. An independent US election project run by the University of Florida claimed that by Sunday more than 59 million people had voted. According to the US Election Assistance Commission website, a total of 5.7 crore people voted last time via mail or before polling.
Democrats hope for profit
The Democratic Party has been promoting pre poll voting since the beginning. It seems that they can get an edge in this. In contrast, Donald Trump has been claiming for months that there is no evidence that mail-in votes (mail-in ballots) constitute fraud. Because of this, supporters of the Republican Party are expected to vote on election day.
On this, Michael McDonald, Professor of Political Science at the University of Florida, says
According to information received by World News Superfast, the way corona is spreading in the country, this strategy is more risky. Michael is also managing an election project. He tweeted that what if some of his voters decide not to vote or the polling booth is closed.
150 million people can vote
An election project has estimated that this time more than 150 million people can cast their votes. In 2016 elections, this figure was 13.7 crores. Some of these states can prove to be very important. The voting figures here are breaking records. They also include Texas. As of last Sunday, 80% of the votes have been cast here as compared to 2016.
Republic Party stronghold records voting in Texas
McDonald said in his tweet that pre-poll voting continues in Texas until Friday. There is no doubt that by the day of the final voting, there would have been more voting in Texas than 2016. The question is how much will it be. Texas has traditionally been a stronghold of the Republican Party. Republican candidates have been supported here since the 1980s. However, some recent surveys have shown Biden overshadowing Trump.
