Voting continues for the 59th presidential election in the United States

WASHINGTON: Voting for the 59th presidential election continues in the United States, with Joe Biden slightly leading President Trump in exit polls so far.

Voters in the United States are casting their ballots today, with 74-year-old US President Donald Trump and 77-year-old Democratic candidate Joe Biden expected to face off, according to the World News Agency.

Biden’s lead and Trump’s desire

According to exit polls, Joe Biden has the upper hand over the US President. Joe Biden is from a small village in New Hampshire with a total population of five.

On the other hand, President Donald Trump does not want to break the record of the last American president to become president for only one term like George W. Bush Sr. About 109 million people have already cast their ballots in the presidential election.

The turnout in the last presidential election was 58.1 percent, but this time it is expected to be around 60 percent. If so many Americans vote, it will probably be the largest turnout in a century.

The role of states in election results

The role of states is very important in the US presidential election. The two largest political parties in the United States are the Democratic Party and the Republican Party. The state with the highest number of votes is attributed to the color of the party, so pro-Democrat states are called Blue and pro-Republican states are called Red States.

The Red States are Alabama, Arkansas, Idaho, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, West Virginia, Wyoming, Alaska, Kansas, Missouri, Montana and Texas.

California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, Arizona, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada , New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin are counted in the Blue States.

It should be noted that President Trump or Joe Biden needs 270 electoral votes out of 538 to take over the presidency.
