US election 2020: Joe Biden says Democrats are ‘on track to win’ and urges supporters to ‘keep faith’

Joe Biden has told a supporter rally in in Delaware he believes he is are “on-track” to win the US Election.

Speaking in front of a large crowd in Wilmington, the Democrat candidate said votes must be counted but he was counting on victory.

Shortly afterwards, current President Donald Trump tweeted to accuse the Democrats of trying to ‘steal’ the election.

He wrote: wrote: “I will be making a statement tonight. A big WIN!

“We are up BIG, but they are trying to STEAL the Election.

“We will never let them do it. Votes cannot be cast after the Polls are closed!”

But the Democrat challenger said people should “keep the faith” while vote counting continues, warning “it may take a little longer”.

He said: “We feel good about where we are. We believe we’re on track to win this election.

“We’re going to have to be patient until the hard work of tallying votes is completed. And it ain’t over until every vote is counted. But we’re feeling good about where we are.



“We’re confident about Arizona, that’s a turnaround.

“We also just called it for Minnesota. And we’re still in the game in Georgia. And we’re feeling real good about Wisconsin and Michigan.

“It’s going to take time to count the votes, but we’re going to win Pennsylvania.

“We could know the results as early as tomorrow, maybe a little longer.

“It’s not my place or Donald Trump’s place to declare who has won the election, that’s the place of the American people.

“Keep the faith guys, and we’re going to win this. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”

The flurry of activity came shortly after one of the biggest swing states, Florida, declared for Trump.

It was classed as a vital win for the sitting US President – and counts for 29 electoral votes.

The confidence of Republicans in victory in the key battleground proved justified.

Trump spends lots of time in the Sunshine State in his residence at Mar-a-Lago and has entertained world leaders there.

Earlier, Joe Biden foiled Donald Trump’s bid to win the state of Minnesota from the Democrats but it was the president who held on to Ohio, a state that has picked the winner in every presidential election since 1960 when it supported Richard Nixon’s candidacy against victor John F Kennedy.
