INFOGRAPHIES - Pollsters, who had not seen Donald Trump's election coming in 2016, place Joe Biden in a much more favorable position than Hillary Clinton four years ago.

Donald Trump multiplies the tweets angry against the "fake polls" (false polls) and repeats that the coup of four years ago will happen again. Two days before the vote, the outgoing president is however clearly ahead of Joe Biden in the polls. The average of polls across the country gives the Democratic challenger eight to ten points. Three months ago, before the official nomination of the two candidates by their respective parties, the gap was almost the same - as shown in the first graph of our infographic below, made from data from the site FiveThirtyEight , which refers to. Neither the televised duels nor the hospitalization of Trump after his infection with Covid-19 have therefore changed the balance of power.

In 2016, Hillary Clinton ended the campaign four points ahead of Donald Trump, but losing ground the last two weeks. The Secretary of State had finally won more votes (48.2% against 46.1% for Trump); but she had been a victim of the American voting system. In the United States, the President is elected by a college of 538 electorate voters, themselves nominated by the voters in each state, their number varying according to the population of the states. To win, a candidate must obtain the vote of at least 270 major voters.

Four years ago, Trump snatched victory by some 78,000 votes, obtained in Pennsylvania (20 major voters), Michigan (16) and Wisconsin (10), three industrial states of Rust Belt, this workers' belt of the American Northeast. Can this situation happen again on Tuesday? "A candidate who wins the citizens' vote with at least eight points difference would be almost guaranteed to win in the electoral college," suggests Mathieu Gallard, director of studies at Ipsos France. The indicators are therefore green for Biden. Especially since the former vice-president of Obama has more than five points in advance in the three states which had failed Clinton in 2016. If this gap were confirmed at the polls, the Democratic candidate would be assured of get a majority of the voters.

"Joe Biden is very clearly the favorite of the election, but Donald Trump still has a chance to win, however specifies Mathieu Gallard . He will need a perfect alignment of the planets for that, even more than the last time. " Thus, the outgoing president must imperatively be full in the States where he is neck and neck with Biden (in gray on our map), including Florida (29 voters). He must also turn the situation around in Pennsylvania, where he is just over five points behind Biden in the polls. Victory in Michigan and Wisconsin, on the other hand, seems highly improbable for him: he is nearly 9 points behind his rival.

Fewer voters declaring themselves undecided than four years ago

The behavior of American voters can nevertheless change until the last moment if one camp comes to mobilize more than the other. But more than 66% of the number of voters in 2016 have already voted in advance, and the number of voters declaring themselves undecided is much lower than four years ago, reducing the likelihood of a reversal in extremis.

On Saturday night, the same site gave Biden a 90% chance of winning.
