Global News published this video item, entitled “Joe Biden visits childhood home on Election Day” – below is their description.
On Tuesday morning of election day, U.S. Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden visited his childhood home in the pivotal state of Pennsylvania. Crowds of supporters cheered the former vice-president as he visited the house in the working class city of Scranton. As he left, he told reporters he had signed a wall in the house where he lived until he was 10 years old. Pennsylvania has emerged as perhaps the most hotly contested state in the hard-fought presidential contest. According to a Reuters/Ipsos poll published on Nov. 2, Biden leads Donald Trump in the state 51 to 44 per cent. More than 99 million Americans voted early either in person or by mail, motivated not only by concerns about waiting in lines on election day amid the coronavirus pandemic, but also by extraordinary levels of enthusiasm after a polarizing campaign trail. The record-shattering total is nearing three-quarters of the total 2016 vote, according to the U.S. Elections Project at the University of Florida. Experts predict the vote could reach 160 million, exceeding the 138 million ballots cast in 2016.
