Politics World Presidential election: Trump wins Florida; find state-wise results here

In a nail-biting contest, Republican incumbent Donald Trump and his Democratic rival Joe Biden are fighting it out in the key battleground states. So far, Joe Biden has secured 238 electoral votes and Donald Trump 213, as per AP predictions.

In order to capture the White House, a candidate has to win 270 of total 538 electoral votes. A record 100 million Americans cast their ballots in early voting before election day on 3 November. 

Results of seven states are still awaited, including Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

Meanwhile, US President Donald Trump has claimed that he had won the US elections, despite the fact that the final results are not out yet. He further declared that he would go to the Supreme Court to dispute the counting of votes.

By early on 4 November, neither candidate had the 270 Electoral College votes needed to win. Trump made premature claims of victories in several key states and said he would take the election to the Supreme Court to stop the counting. It was unclear exactly what legal action he might try to pursue.

Vote tabulations routinely continue beyond Election Day, and states largely set the rules for when the count has to end. In presidential elections, a key point is the date in December when presidential electors met. That’s set by federal law.

Several states allow mailed-in votes to be accepted after Election Day, as long as they were postmarked by 3 November. That includes Pennsylvania, where ballots postmarked by 3 November can be accepted if they arrive up to three days after the election.

“We did win this election,” Trump said in the White House. “This is a fraud on the American public.”

According to AP VoteCast, a national survey of the electorate, voters ranked the COVID-19 pandemic and economy as the nation’s most important issues.

Following is a list of the states won by Donald Trump and Joe Biden and the corresponding number of electoral votes, based on the AP projections.

*Nebraska and *Maine are the only two states in the US that split their Electoral College votes.

Trump and Biden are locked in a neck-and-neck fight contest to win the 270 electoral votes required to be president with the Democratic candidate currently leading the race for White House with 238 electoral college votes, while the Republican incumbent has earned 213 votes. In a fillip to the Republican campaign, the US President has taken the crucial states of Ohio, Texas and Florida, and is also leading in major battleground states like Georgia and Pennsylvania. 

Florida (29), Ohio (18) and Pennsylvania (16) hold the maximum number of electoral votes for any swing states. The states of Texas, North Carolina, Ohio and Pennsylvania hold the key to the election results and Donald Trump must win all of them, while Biden can snatch the presidency with a win in any one of these states.
