Count down to the final hours of the United States Presidential Election has begun and Americans are eager to vote in a competition starkly divided by its two candidates.
Americans will decide today whether to back President Donald Trump or his Democratic opponent Joe Biden.
Despite an often startlingly laid-back campaign, 77-year-old Mr Biden’s offer of new leadership in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, which has killed more than 231,000 Americans, has him leading in the majority of polls.
According to Mr Biden, “I have a feeling we’re coming together for a big win tomorrow,” he said in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, a vital electoral battleground.
On the other hand, Mr Trump was characteristically defiant to the end, campaigning at a frenetic pace with crowded rallies in four states on Monday, and repeating his dark, unprecedented claims for a US president that the polls risk being rigged against him.
He said, “We’re going to have another beautiful victory tomorrow,” addressing a crowd of voters in early hours of Tuesday in Grand Rapids, Michigan, which chanted back: “We love you, we love you!”
