Americans accepted unrivaled early voting and by mail in the US presidential elections, as their number reached more than 95 million voters, or 69 percent of the total number of voters in the 2016 elections (about 139 million), according to a census of the American Election Project at the University Florida.


Today, this number is expected to rise to about 150 million voters, with polling stations open starting at 6:00 a.m. EST, with voting operations continuing until 9:00 p.m. West Coast Time for this country.


Amid mutual accusations of possible "intimidation" of voters, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has launched investigations into several incidents that occurred in many states, the most recent of which was in Texas when cars carrying supporters of President Donald Trump were seen chasing a bus belonging to the campaign of his Democratic rival, Joe Biden. Many buildings in Washington, DC, and major cities such as New York and Los Angeles, among others, raised wooden panels, amid fears of violence and unrest during or after this day.


According to a nationwide poll, the majority of Americans on the left and the right are concerned about their country, stating that they are "concerned about the stability of American democracy." Although the average polls in the "swinging" state of Iowa show Trump is only two points ahead, and this is narrower than the margin of error, a new poll by the Des Moines Register and Selzer & Co., among the most likely voters in the state, showed that Trump would get 48 percent. Of the vote to Biden's 41%. The importance of this poll is that in 2016 it was the only one who predicted that Trump would beat his rival Hillary Clinton. Democrats fear that his expectations are correct now, which may mean that Trump is in a much better position than expected in Iowa, and perhaps in other states such as electoral "battlefields" in the Midwest, such as Michigan and Wisconsin.


"The reason that made the Selzer poll raise Democrats' shudder and the hope of the Republicans is the history of this poll," CNN reported, "which confirmed four years ago that Trump was a 7-point lead." The result was identical.


Likewise, the head of the Trafalgar Group, Robert Cahaly, who supports the Republican Party, expected Trump to win five swing states, and consequently, in the electoral college. He mocked skeptics of his unorthodox way of predicting election results, stating that he was right in 2016.


In addition, Robert did not rule out that a possible disagreement over the results of the mail poll in Pennsylvania would delay the announcement of the election results until early January 2021, bearing in mind that the overall polls indicate that Biden is ahead of Trump within the margin of error.


He cautioned that "Trump's chances are about 10 percent, not zero," adding that the current president "could benefit from the electoral college." He stated that in 2016, "the expected margins in specific states were much narrower than the margins in the popular vote at the national level."
