CNN and others have projected that Floria electoral votes will go to President Trump. With 29 electoral votes at stake, Florida had the most electoral votes to offer of the states viewed as toss-ups heading into Election Day. Early on, Joe Biden had a 2-point edge over President Trump but as the night wore on, that lead diminished. This is a projection and not official. Mr. Trump has visited Florida at least 16 times this year and on Sunday ni ...

Republican Lindsey Graham defeats well-funded Democratic challenger Jaime Harrison in South Carolina
(CNN)South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham will return to the Senate for a fourth term after defeating Democratic challenger Jaime Harrison, CNN projects at 52 to 48 respectively. Harrison gained attention for raising huge amounts of money, but he was still a long shot just a few months ago. South Carolina is a deep red state that hasn't elected a Democrat to the Senate since 1998. President Donald Trump will win the state's 9 electora ...

Race to 270 is a nail-biter
Nebraska and Maine are the only two states that apportion some of their electoral votes based on how each congressional district votes. That means that while four of Nebraska's five electoral votes heavily favor the GOP, one of them — awarded to the presidential candidate that wins the Omaha-based 2nd District — is in play. (So is Maine's 2nd district, which is more competitive than the Democratic-leaning state overall.) Both the Biden and Tr ...

Trump tries to undermine democratic process at the end of the campaign
(CNN)President Donald Trump is casting doubt on the integrity of vote counting and warning he will deploy squads of lawyers when polls close on Tuesday, as his latest attempts to tarnish the democratic process deepen a sense of national nervousness hours before Election Day. The President's maneuvering, as he fights to the last moment to secure a second term, is taking place ahead of a court hearing in Texas Monday morning on a Republican requ ...

This could be the most important election of a lifetime
(CNN)Presidential candidates always hype the coming election as the most important in our lifetimes. This time it might be true. An already divided nation is making its choice between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden with fraught political divides exacerbated by the worst public health crisis in a century. It is also facing a consequent economic slump that has cost millions of Americans their jobs and a still unresolv ...

If Pennsylvania goes, so will go the country
PHILADELPHIA — Pennsylvania has emerged as the keystone state of the entire race for the White House. In the last three days of the presidential election, the campaigns of both Donald Trump and Joe Biden have made the swing state their home, with Pennsylvania surfacing as the president’s new top focus, his aides said. Trump spent Saturday crisscrossing the state from the Delaware Valley to fracking country to north central Pennsylvania to s ...

Brash and pugnacious, Trump has presided over a tumultuous presidency
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Businessman-turned-politician Donald Trump has promoted “America First” nationalism, withstood impeachment and a bout with COVID-19, and taken contentious stands on race and immigration during a turbulent presidency that detractors say has flouted U.S. democratic norms. After decades of fame first as a brash and media-savvy New York real estate developer and then as a reality TV personality, the pugnacious Trump tapped i ...

Just three days before the US Presidential election, Trump fights Dr. Anthony Fauci, which in turn angers and disappoints Dr. Fauci. Trump continues to deny the pandemic by attempting to discredit doctors, disputing science and cursing the press for reporting rising coronavirus case counts — the long-running rift between the White House and Dr. Anthony Fauci burst into the open Saturday night.

Can Trump Be Elected Only By A Big Mistake?
President Donald Trump still has a chance for second term but most likely only there is a last minute polling mistake that hides a possible Trump victory. Remember 2016? A series of state polls Trump's chances of winning a second term now require winning states where he still trails with only days to go until voting concludes. In most of the core swing states, Joe Biden has a stable lead over Trump in polls over the past few months, and it ...

Trump is losing support of his Catholic followers
In the 2016 presidential race, "Catholic Americans helped seal Donald Trump’s come-from-behind victory with a flood of support in the industrial Midwest," POLITICO said on Friday. The article pointed out, however, that recent "polls have shown Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden with a steady lead among Catholic voters." This was one of the big surprises of the 2016 election: 4 in 10 American women voted for candidate Donald Trump. ...

How a fake persona laid the groundwork for a Hunter Biden conspiracy deluge
One month before a purported leak of files from Hunter Biden's laptop, a fake "intelligence" document about him went viral on the right-wing internet, asserting an elaborate conspiracy theory involving former Vice President Joe Biden's son and business in China. The document, a 64-page composition that was later disseminated by close associates of President Donald Trump, appears to be the work of a fake "intelligence firm" called Typhoon Inves ...

Trump has signaled he won't accept an election loss. Many of his voters agree
PHOENIX — President Donald Trump has refused to say he’d accept the results of the election in the event that he loses, and in the closing days of the race, some of his supporters have taken his faulty or unsubstantiated claims about voter fraud to heart. At a packed outdoor rally in this battleground state Wednesday, Trump said the polls that show him trailing the Democratic nominee Joe Biden are “fake,” drawing boos from the crowd and raisin ...

People Are Going To Be Shocked: Return of the 'Shy' Trump Voter?
In 2016, pollsters Arie Kapteyn and Robert Cahaly saw Trump coming. In 2020, they see polls again underestimating his support. With Nov. 3 racing toward us, it can be tempting to see the 2020 election as a done deal. For months, Joe Biden has consistently and convincingly led Donald Trump in polls. Swing states in the industrial Midwest and Sun Belt appear to be heading Biden’s way, and if you trust the polls, it’s not a leap to imagine him wi ...

While both share a bond with Penn, the similarities end there. This November, the stakes are higher than ever. The climate, the economy, our health, and our lives are on the line.

Editorial: The Herald endorses Trump
he 2020 presidential election is about what people don’t want as much as what they actually do want. For the left, getting Donald Trump out of office tops the wish list. It’s been that way since the day after the 2016 election. For them, everything the president has done is bad, every move sinister, and every policy one more nail in the progressive coffin. To be fair, Trump hasn’t done himself any favors with his incessant Tweets, revolving ...

Donald Trump has desecrated the values that make America a beacon to the world. THE COUNTRY that elected Donald Trump in 2016 was unhappy and divided. The country he is asking to re-elect him is more unhappy and more divided. After almost four years of his leadership, politics is even angrier than it was and partisanship even less constrained. Daily life is consumed by a pandemic that has registered almost 230,000 deaths amid bickering, buck-pass ...

WASHINGTON — For many political junkies and analysts, the 2020 presidential campaign feels eerily familiar. The national polls show that the Democrat has a big lead. Some usually Republican states seem to be in play. And the Trump campaign is relying heavily on a strategy of focusing on its base. It's all very 2016, and it has Trump and Biden supporters wondering whether the result in November could look similar, as well. The similarities t ...

He continues to trail former Vice President Joe Biden nationally and in the key swing states with just nine days to go. But perhaps most worrisome for the President: Trump's clearly behind his 2016 pace. By this point four years ago, he was rapidly closing the gap with Hillary Clinton. No such advancements can be seen in the 2020 polling against Biden. Right ...
