Biden Hails ‘Overwhelming’ Voter Turnout Among Young People, African Americans

Bloomberg QuickTake: Now published this video item, entitled “Biden Hails ‘Overwhelming’ Voter Turnout Among Young People, African Americans” – below is their description.

Joe Biden addressed supporters in Delaware on Tuesday, saying that if he gets elected President there won’t be “red states or blue states, just the United States of America”. With almost 102 million Americans voting early and millions more waiting in lines on Election Day, the rancorous campaign across a polarised nation clearly stuck a nerve with the electorate. The Democratic nominee kept his eyes on the critical state of Pennsylvania, taking his final pitch to voters in his hometown of Scranton and the Democratic stronghold of Philadelphia. In battlegrounds, including Florida, Iowa, Georgia, Michigan and Pennsylvania, some voters showed up to their polling places before dawn to beat the crowds, but still found themselves having to wait in long lines to cast their ballots. The first polls close at 6pm Eastern time in swaths of Indiana and Kentucky, followed by a steady stream of poll closings every 30 minutes to an hour throughout the evening. The last polls in Alaska shut down at 1am Eastern time on Wednesday.
