Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said Thursday that he does not doubt winning, calling for calm and patience as the vote count continues.
In a short speech, the Democratic presidential candidate said that he does not doubt winning, calling for calm and patience as the vote count continues.
Biden appealed to everyone to remain calm until the votes were counted, stressing the need to count every vote.
The Democratic candidate came close to beating his opponent, President Donald Trump, in very close elections in which the decision is based on very narrow margins in a few states. At the same time, the Republican president has filed a series of lawsuits in the hope of slowing down his opponent.
Tensions rose in some places, with the counting of votes continuing two days after the polling stations closed on the second day of demonstrations regarding the elections’ integrity.
Biden, the former US Vice President, continues to reduce the lead by Trump in Pennsylvania and Georgia while maintaining a slight margin of progress in Nevada and Arizona.
Without evidence, the president claimed fraud, instituted lawsuits and called for a recount in at least one state.
On Thursday, President Trump’s campaign lost two court rulings in Georgia and Michigan’s hotly contested states while pledging to file a new lawsuit to challenge what it called voting irregularities in Nevada.
In Georgia’s suit, the Trump campaign said 53 late-arrived ballot papers were mixed with those arriving on time.
In Michigan, the campaign sought to prevent votes from being counted and allow greater oversight of tabulation data and statistics. The judges of the two states rejected the lawsuits.
Judge James Bass, Georgia Supreme Court judge, said there was “no evidence” that the ballot in question was invalid.
In the Michigan case, Judge Cynthia Stephens said, “I do not see any basis for arriving at a high probability of success on the merits.”
Trump allies claim there were voting irregularities in Nevada’s densely populated Clark County, including Las Vegas.
A Trump campaign spokeswoman did not respond to requests for comment on the Michigan and Georgia rulings.
Vote counting continues in the three states, among the few that could win the presidency.
