This year’s presidential election has seen a record-breaking number of early voters, and many are crediting one crucial element…
This year’s elections have arguably been the most talked-about and most divisive in decades.
And, as a result, millions of Americans have been getting out early to make their vote count.
And many believe it’s all thanks to one crucial factor.
But it seems that he has some serious competition from his rival, Joe Biden.
But it has been powering on ahead… despite many major setbacks.
And, entering into the debate, Biden had a significant and persistent lead in the polls.
And in the weeks running up the debate, he attempted to cast doubt over Biden’s abilities, claiming that he was suffering from dementia and that he was taking performance-enhancing drugs.
Both Trump and Biden seemed to be having a field day throwing insults at one another, calling each other out, and constantly interrupting each other.
And it didn’t leave a pleasant taste in the mouths of viewers who were, quite frankly, left feeling disgusted at what they had just witnessed.
Leaving the people of America feeling nothing short of disheartened in the run-up to an election.
And things took an ultimate turn for the worst when at the start of October, the President and the First Lady, Melania, tested positive for COVID-19.
Trump insisted that they immediately went into self-isolation together and that they felt fine, but after just a few days, he was hospitalized at Walter Reed National Military Centre.
He was discharged just a few days later and insisted to the nation that all we need to do is to “learn to live with COVID”, which was very concerning to hear.
And, ever since, he has continued to throw his notorious rallies with gusto… And no social distancing, of course.
The president has been flying all over the country and encouraging his supporters to gather in masses to greet him… which goes against every coronavirus precaution taken this year.
He certainly does not!
The president has actually been encouraging his supporters to attend his rallies and has even insisted that there is “nothing to worry about” with regards to the virus.
And that’s the record number of early voters this election cycle has seen.
A tally from the U.S. Elections Project at the University of Florida have today revealed that over eighty million Americans have cast their ballots early…
Only forty-seven million votes came before Election Day in 2016, Reuters reported.
Well, the Democrats hold a significant advantage in early voting due to their support of mail balloting this year.
Many have avoided early voting entirely this year amid repeated and unfounded attacks by Trump, who says the system is prone to widespread fraud.
Experts have predicted the turnout will easily surpass the 138 million who voted in the 2016 presidential election.
Election day is on November 3rd… make sure to get your vote in!
