Joe Biden, Donald Trump run neck and neck in U.S

Joe Biden, Donald Trump

Washington: Voters in four states considered their parties’ presidential nominees. It’s a huge symbolic vote, now that President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump have both locked up the Democratic and Republican nominations. Biden and Trump easily won primaries in Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York and Wisconsin, boosting the number of delegates to their party conventions this summer. While their victories are not surprising, they do indicate enthusiasm among base voters for an upcoming 2020 rematch that has left most Americans disappointed.

With the victory of Biden and Trump, the number of delegates (members of the electoral college) they received increased. In the elections held to choose the presidential candidates of both the parties, the names of many contenders were on the ballot in all four states, but Trump and Biden did not face any major challenge. In the primary election, Trump got more than 75 percent votes, while Biden got more than 80 percent votes. With this, Trump now has the support of 1,860 delegates.

Biden has so far secured the support of 3,030 delegates, while 1,968 delegates are required to become the party nominee. Biden also faced opposition from some activists during the election, calling on Democratic Party members to vote against the president to express their disapproval of his handling of the war between Israel and Hamas. Scott Lindeman, a 62-year-old from Kenosha, Wisconsin, said Donald Trump is the first person I can remember who actually tried to keep all the promises he made during the campaign. I am very impressed with him.
