This year's presidential election has seen a record-breaking number of early voters, and many are crediting one crucial element...
It's been one hell of a journey.This year's elections have arguably been the most talked-about and most divisive in decades.
The stakes have never been higher...And, as a result, millions of Americans have been getting out early to make their vote count.
Never-before has early voting been so popular...And many believe it's all thanks to one crucial factor.
Now, President Trump has been fighting hard to gain victory and be reelected as President of the United States...

Of course, the election couldn't have fallen on a worse year.
via: GettyBut it has been powering on ahead... despite many major setbacks.
The first presidential debate was held back in September...
via: GettyAnd, entering into the debate, Biden had a significant and persistent lead in the polls.
Trump was obviously aware of this...
via: GettyAnd 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.
Overall, the ninety-minute debate, that was held by Fox News' Chris Wallace, was a bitter one.
via: GettyBoth Trump and Biden seemed to be having a field day throwing insults at one another, calling each other out, and constantly interrupting each other.
The whole debate was certainly made personal...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.
It all felt very disorganized...
Leaving the people of America feeling nothing short of disheartened in the run-up to an election.
This debate is unfortunately between a steamroller with no operator & a Roomba that got stuck in a corner— Aparna Nancherla (@Aparna Nancherla)1601428943.0
But Trump's presidential campaign continued to hit rocks...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.
However, despite the huge worry surrounding Trump's health...
via: GettyHe 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.
In the days following the diagnosis', Trump continued to insist on how he was "feeling better than ever."
via: GettyAnd, ever since, he has continued to throw his notorious rallies with gusto... And no social distancing, of course.
