As voting happens across various US states, the battle is becoming intense with the growing hour. Both candidates, Joe Biden and Donald Trump are rooting for their trust in the public.
As of 12:40 p.m Washington, the results were as follows: 227 for Democrat, which is Biden’s party and 213 votes for Republic, that is Trump’s. Biden pro states that turned out in favour of him are Washington, Oregon, California among others. Trump favoured states are Texas, Ohio and Kansas, among others.
The final result is hanging on a knife, that which can tousle on any end. The country, while hopeful of its new candidate Biden, is still attached to the former president Trump who has been at the post for quite some time. Both candidates have made similar promises and are vouching for the most coveted position. The results hangs in suspension as some of the states are remaining for counting of the votes and it could be days before the final results are announced.
The US elections are a matter of worry for not only US citizens, but across world leaders in other parts of the world. The leaders of Russia, Korea, Pakistan, Iran and other countries at political juncture with US are equally tense with the outcome of the result. The US election is a huge event in itself, its result impacting surely the other parts of the world. US has key strategic alliances with all major countries of the world and the direction of these policies in future will be determined by the incumbent president of US, to be decided in a matter of days’ time.
European Union’s foreign policy chief, Josep Borell says that ‘the world has to be a little patient, almost certainly a lot of patience’. The nail-biting suspense is held at three crucial states, Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. There is a lot of focus on these three states as they could decide the fate of Biden or Trump. Borell continued to add that in US, till the last vote the counting happens and that last vote could be a game changer as well.
