The Democrats has shifted their focus towards the economy and public health
The numbers haven’t changed yet – Democratic candidate Joe Biden is still at 264 of the 538 electoral college votes, needing six more to win presidency. Meanwhile Republican candidate and current US President Donald Trump is also still sitting at 214 votes.
As he’s confident about winning, Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris have now started focusing on two major areas of economy and public health, that are being badly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
President Trump and his supporters are meanwhile arguing for all legal votes to be counted; their claim being that Democrats are adding illegal votes for themselves for which there is still no evidence. The Democrats are calling these desperate attempts from a man who will soon be out of the position of president. Trump has already filed lawsuits in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Georgia.
This has been added to already existing Republican legal challenges in Pennsylvania and Nevada, where better campaign observers were requested, so that all ballots are carefully processed and counted, and raise absentee ballot concerns. Trump is insisting that the observers can watch the ballots being opened and counted. Trump stated, baselessly of course, that he would’ve already won the election if only the “legal” votes were counted and not the “illegal ones.” He said that he lost the leads in many states due to the “magical” dumping of ballots which he tried to cast aside as late-arriving, and to be held under suspicion. But this is the same man who said that there will be less number of citizens infected by COVID-19 if we just stopped reporting them, so at this point, he cannot be taken seriously. But Trump supporters are still carrying out “Count the Vote” protests across the country.
