The whole world is now looking at whether Donald Trump or Joe Biden will win the US presidential election. In response to this question, the counting of votes was not completed on the night of November 4 after the election ended on November 3. Leading the preliminary poll is Democrat candidate former Vice President Joe Biden, who is close to winning at once.

On the other hand, Donald Trump has demanded a recount of votes, and has announced that he will go to court if necessary. President Trump is not willing to accept defeat before he loses.

Joe Biden is leading not only in the electoral vote, but also in the general election. He has already recorded a high turnout. Biden has broken former President Barack Obama's record. He is the first presidential candidate to receive so many votes in any US presidential election.

In the country somewhere the demand is to continue the counting of votes, somewhere the demand is to postpone the counting of votes again. In this way, the tension surrounding the counting of votes is slowly rising in the whole of the USA. Therefore, it is expected that this problem will not be solved easily if the results are announced. Republicans have filed lawsuits in the U.S. Supreme Court seeking to suspend the count in Pennsylvania and Michigan.

Lawyers in the country have come down to the hair-raising analysis of how much the Trump camp will get if it goes to the US Supreme Court after losing the vote. "We don't think the court will support Trump's announcement to come to court to stop the counting of ballots on or before Election Day," they said. There are doubts that the court could handle any disputes that could change the direction of the Pennsylvania and Michigan state vote.

According to US media reports, Biden received 264 of the 538 electoral votes. Biden will be elected president with only 270 electoral votes if only six electoral votes are confirmed. On the other hand, Donald Trump got 214 electoral votes.

Georgia (16), Nevada (6), North Carolina (15) and Pennsylvania (20) are still counting votes. Fierce fighting is going on between the two candidates in the states. Biden will get the ticket to victory if he gets 6 electoral votes in Nevada, while Trump will get out of the fight for power in the second term.

According to international media reports, more than 88 percent of the votes in the state of Nevada have been counted. Biden is also ahead in this state. He received 49.3 percent of the vote, compared to Trump's 47.6 percent. Biden is a little behind Trump in Georgia. Here, Trump is breathing down his neck with 49.6 percent of the vote, Biden with 49.2 percent of the vote. But the Pennsylvania gap is still more than 2 percent.

Trump has been behind the polls since the start of the election campaign in the United States, which was devastated by the coronavirus. Trump was frustrated with the economic crisis, the deaths of more than 2.50 lakh from Corona and racism. Therefore, the issue of his popularity in the election was not unexpected at once, but the fight was not expected evenly.
