Trump supporters want polling stations to stop counting… and to continue counting

Words: Katie Gartland


Trump has been urging polling stations to stop counting votes in Pennsylvania and Michigan and encouraging the continuing of counting in Nevada, where he needs votes. His supporters have been taking to the streets of these states in the hope that they sway the election in his favour. 

In Detroit, Trump supporters began shouting “stop the count” in despite of Biden’s lead. While in Nevada, where Trump is also behind, the President’s supporters are gathered outside polling stations to urge the continuation of counting.

Since the polling stations shut on Tuesday evening the world whole has held their breath. It has been neck and neck between Trump and Biden for the race to US presidency. 

Biden is currently in the lead, he has 253 electoral votes while Trump has 214.

It’s all down to 5 states; Arizona, Georgia, N Carolina, Nevada, Pennsylvania.
