The United States, the elections and the wave. With the US elections on November 3 approaching, the number of infections is increasing in almost all states. They are currently at a low level in only six of the 50 US states, including Joe Bidens (77), home state of Delaware.
A look at the Corona curve shows: The United States is already experiencing the third wave. The problem: this time there are no hotspots, the virus has hit practically all regions and, shortly before the elections, it hits swing states in particular, where a few thousand votes can decide whether to win or lose.
The growing number of infections could impact voter turnout if voters don’t dare leave their homes, are in quarantine, or are even seriously ill.
In Pennslyvania, for example. Only 44,292 votes made a difference in 2016, giving Donald Trump (74) the surprise victory. Pennsylvania will help decide the US elections again this year. At least with a high probability.
2020 USA Elections: These swing states will decide the elections
Trump will hold three rallies here on Monday
Fox data from “Fivethirtyeight” calculated in mid-September: if Trump gets 20 electoral votes here, he has an 84% chance of a second term – if Biden wins, the Democrat also has a 96% chance of joining the House Bianca pull.
Joe Biden is currently about five percentage points ahead in Pennsylvania, only half the national average. As a result, both candidates are waging an intensive campaign for the founding state. US President Donald Trump held three demonstrations here on Monday.
With approximately 12.8 million inhabitants, the state currently records 1,712 new infections per day (7-day average), up 38 percent from two weeks earlier. In the past two weeks, corona deaths have increased by 26% and hospitalizations by 49%. The trend is increasing.
The US presidential election will be held on November 3, 2020. Current President Donald Trump is aiming for a second term. Will he be able to defend his position or will challenger Joe Biden win for the Democrats?
