"Swing States": These states could decide the US election

 Who will be the next US president will be decided in a few US states. In many of the 50 states, the same party always wins, but about a dozen are highly competitive. In the election on November 3rd, eyes will be on these "battleground states" or "swing states". The Republican Donald Trump and his Democratic challenger Joe Biden also campaigned for votes there in the final spurt of the election campaign.

Donald Trump continues his frenetic pace of campaigning with stops in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. His Democratic rival for the US presidency, Joe Biden, will campaign in Ohio, another crucial state in the 3 November poll. Some 90 million people have already voted ahead of election

With just two days until election day, more than 92 million US citizens have already cast their votes, far outpacing early voting in any past elections and accounting for 67 percent of all votes counted in 2016. Trump held four rallies in the state on Monday, while Biden is holding two events on Sunday.

Frenetic final spurt by Donald Trump in the US election campaign: the President was confident of victory at several rallies on Sunday. "We will win four more years in our great White House," Trump said two days before the election to supporters in North Carolina. His challenger Joe Biden said in a performance in Pennsylvania: "In two days we can end a presidency that has divided this nation."

Trump had surprisingly won against Hillary Clinton four years ago in Pennsylvania, which contributed significantly to his entry into the White House. Biden now recalled that Trump's lead there had only been 44,000 votes at the time. "Every vote counts!" exclaimed the ex-vice president. Trump and Biden want to perform again in Pennsylvania on Monday.

In the polls, Biden has been ahead of Trump for months across the country and in a number of the "swing states" that are considered to be decisive for the election. A poll published this Sunday by the "New York Times" and Siena College sees the candidate for the opposition Democrats in four major states in which Trump won in 2016: Pennsylvania, Arizona, Florida and Wisconsin.

However, four years ago most polls had clearly seen Trump behind, which fueled widespread doubts about the reliability of the polls ahead of this year's election.

How much influence the last appearances of the candidates can still have is highly uncertain. Because a record number of around 93 million US citizens voted before the actual election date. They used the option of absentee voting or early voting in a polling station or an outdoor, secure ballot box.

Since Trump has been denouncing postal voting for months as being extremely susceptible to fraud, many of his critics fear that he might not recognize his possible defeat - and the election could be followed by a hard argument about the outcome.

In view of the extremely polarized political situation, there are also widespread concerns that the election could lead to an escalation of violence. In some cities - including the capital Washington - some business operators have already boarded up the shop windows.

An incident in Texas fueled fears of an escalation of violence. According to Biden, one of his campaign buses was harassed in trucks by Trump supporters and forced to stop. The Federal Police FBI said they were investigating the incident.

Trump welcomed the incident. He published a video of it on the Internet service Twitter - and added the words: "I love Texas." During his appearance in Michigan, the president argued that his supporters wanted to "protect" the Biden bus.

His electoral rival reacted indignantly. There has "never" been such an incident - at least it has never happened before that a US president considers such an incident to be a "good cause," said Biden.

The election is strongly influenced by the corona pandemic. With more than 230,000 deaths, the US states have the highest number of victims worldwide. Biden described Trump's crisis management as "almost criminal" at the weekend.

The White House, meanwhile, had a public dispute with disease expert Anthony Fauci, who is a member of Trump's advisory team. In the Washington Post, he harshly criticized the Trump administration's crisis management and praised Biden's "serious" stance on the pandemic. A Trump spokesman dismissed Fauci's remarks as "unacceptable".
