US Election 2020: Donald Trump will be sworn in as the next president of the US in January next year or Joe Biden, the final picture is not clear yet. Apart from this, Trump refused to accept the results and said that the election is being rigged and he will appeal in the Federal Court. In view of this, there is also a possibility of such situation in America that despite the defeat Donald Trump may refuse to exit the White House. On the other hand, Joe Biden has also talked about going to court and has started a campaign to donate to people. Joe Biden has received so much support from the people that he also broke the record of Barack Obama. Apart from this, the voter turnout rate has broken a record of 120 years.
Trump threatened to seek military assistance
In September, US President Trump will not easily transfer power in the event of rigging of elections. Instead, he will end any rebellion under the 200-year-old Insurrection Act with the help of federal troops. In a conversation with Fox News, Trump called such a situation a rebellion. On this trend of Trump, Biden said last month that Trump will ensure the transfer of power to the military if he refuses to leave the White House even after losing the election. Trump has often been referring to his support among military officers.
Army General’s stand
However, the attitude of US Army General Mark Miley on this issue is different. He said to stay away from this issue. Mark told National Public Radio last month that any such situation would be handled appropriately through the court and the US Congress. Mark was appointed by Trump last year as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Mark said that the military has no role in the outcome of the US election.
Voter turnout rate of 66.9 percent
After 120 years, in the year 2020, most people exercised their franchise. Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Florida says that this figure will increase further because many ballots are yet to be counted. In the US, 23.9 crore people were eligible to vote this year, of which 16 crore, or 66.9 percent people, have exercised their franchise (voter turnout rate). However, after the completion of this count, there can be further increased. Earlier in 1900, the voter turnout rate was 73.7 percent. The turnout rate was 56 percent in 2016 and 58 percent in 2018. Trump won in 2016 and Barack Obama in 2008.
Increased support of both candidates
The impact of higher turnover rate has been shown to increase in support of both candidates. According to the counting so far, Biden has received 7.2 million votes, which is 8 million more than the votes of Hillary Clinton in 2016. Trump has so far received 6.85 million votes, the highest turnout for a Republican candidate.
