US Election 2020: Biden and Trump hit swing states

Washington – Donald Trump and Joe Biden have been travelling across the nation as the US election race enters its final hours.

Republican President Trump, 74, visited five battleground states while his 77-year-old Democratic challenger spoke at a campaign event in Pennsylvania – also a state where the contest is tight.

Biden, a former vice-president, has a healthy national lead in the latest polls ahead of Tuesday’s election.

But this is not a clear-cut case in key states which could decide the result.

Over 90 million people have already cast their ballots in early voting, putting the country on course for its highest turnout in a century.

The election comes amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The US has recorded more cases and more deaths that any other country worldwide, reporting more than 81,000 new infections on Sunday alone.

Trump had a punishing schedule on Sunday, holding rallies in Iowa, Michigan, Carolina and Georgia, followed by Florida – all states where polls suggest a tighter race.

Biden headed to Pennsylvania, his place of birth and another key state. Trump narrowly won there in 2016 but polls suggest Biden is slightly ahead this year.
