US Elections: Trump Vows To Defy Polls, Biden Urges ‘Take Back Our Democracy’

Washington: United States President Donald Trump vowed to defy the polls as he sprinted through five swing states on Sunday, while his opponent Joe Biden urged supporters to “take back our democracy” by voting in two days.

The last-minute scramble came as polls showed Biden maintaining his overall lead — but with some slight tightening in key states including Pennsylvania, where he leads by four points, and Florida, now a tossup, according to a RealClearPolitics average of polls.

With Americans galvanised by the stakes, the election has already mobilised a record number of early voters.

“We’re now leading,” Trump insisted before a raucous rally of supporters in Washington Township, Michigan.

“Look, we’re leading in Florida. We’re leading in Georgia… They say it’s a very close race in Texas. I don’t think so. They did that four years ago and I won in a landslide,” he said.

Trump said that he is gearing up for legal challenges in the counting of mail and absentee votes in Pennsylvania.

“I think it is a terrible thing when ballots can be collected after an election. I think it is a terrible thing when people or states are allowed to tabulate ballots for a long period of time after the election is over because it can only lead to one thing,” Trump said.

“We are going in the night of — as soon as the election is over — we are going in with our lawyers,” he added.

In the national polls, Trump continues to trail with a 42% chance as compared to a 51% of Biden.
