The entire world has its eyes on the U.S. Election 2020, as both the Republican and Democratic parties are up close to have the U.S. presidency to their name. It has not always been the case that the U.S. elections have kept the voters waiting for so long. This time in the 2020 U.S. elections, the waiting has been the second-longest in the history of the United States. Elections in the United States mostly had results coming in later on the election day.
This has always been the case in elections where the margin between two of the top candidates was very high. One such election was that of 1972 when Richard Nixon had won the presidency. As we witness and await the U.S. Elections 2020 results, we can see that it is a very close race between both the Democratic and Republican parties. The margin is very low.
