It might look bad, but it is beginning to look like the 2020 elections are going the same way as those in 2016. Donald Trump has fallen behind in an almost identical fashion to his previous election, what we expect is that as the pink states and counties turn red, Trump will take the lead and then ultimately win the presidency.

As it stands, much of the pink states are yet to be declared, giving the illusion that President Trump is behind. Once the results are declared and the electoral college votes added to the tally, The President should pull through beyond 270 points.


Many Republicans Defeat Democrat Members Of Congress

WSVN 7 News reported:

Gimenez beat Mucarsel-Powell 52% to 48% of votes, with 93% of the precincts reporting. In a speech to his supporters, the mayor said that he wants to work as a bipartisan congressman, unlike his opponent, he said, who’s only working solely for her party. …

Gimenez said that working as a mayor during the pandemic was perhaps the biggest challenge he ever faced. He was elected mayor in 2011 and his term limit ended with him claiming Florida’s 26th Congressional district seat.

CBS 4 Miami reported:

With 97 percent of the votes counted, Salazar, a former TV journalist, received 51 percent of the vote over Shalala’s 49 percent. As of 10:30 p.m., Shalala had not yet conceded the race.

Both candidates had faced each other in 2018, but this time the results were reversed. Salazar spent much of her campaign focused on Representative Shalala’s failure to report a series of personal stock transactions.

The New York Daily News reported:
