As the ballot counts draw to a close, the odds on Joe Biden securing the presidency have risen to an all-time high…
After Trump initially dominated the polls, recent numbers show a surprising change coming in for presidential-hopeful, Joe Biden.
Let’s take a look at some of the most important events that have gone down in the last twenty-four hours.
And according to the Independent, polls showed that Biden and his vice presidential nominee, Kamala Harris, lead the way, being favored amongst 66% of voters.

It was quickly deleted from the social media platform.
Trump wins the crucial seat, earning him 38 electoral points.
In a speech, he expressed a worry that ballots would be found at “4 o’clock in the morning” which he didn’t think should be counted.

It’s a battleground state that Trump won 4 years prior.

“The president’s statement tonight about trying to shut down the counting of duly cast ballots was outrageous, unprecedented, and incorrect,” said Biden campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon in a statement:
“It was outrageous because it is a naked effort to take away the democratic rights of American citizens.
“It was unprecedented because never before in our history has a president of the United States sought to strip Americans of their voice in a national election. Having encouraged Republican efforts in multiple states to prevent the legal counting of these ballots before Election Day, now Donald Trump is saying these ballots can’t be counted after Election Day either.
“And it was incorrect because it will not happen. The counting will not stop. It will continue until every duly cast vote is counted. Because that is what our laws — the laws that protect every Americans’ constitutional right to vote — require.
“We repeat what the Vice President said tonight: Donald Trump does not decide the outcome of this election. Joe Biden does not decide the outcome of this election. The American people decide the outcome of this election. And the democratic process must and will continue until its conclusion.”
