It is known that, the delay of the verdict can be attributed to the high number of turnouts in both election day votes and mail-in ballots and slim margins between both candidates in some key battleground States.
The tension and focus is on Pennsylvania and Nevada where Biden led Trump by more than 27,000 votes and about 22,000 votes respectively.
Biden addressed the nation from his home in Wilmington, Delaware stating;
Never forget the tallies aren’t just numbers: they represent votes and voters.The numbers tell us a clear and convincing story: We’re going to win this race.
We have to remember the purpose of our politics isn’t total unrelenting, unending warfare.
No, the purpose of our politics, the work of our nation, isn’t to fan the flames of conflict, but to solve problems, to guarantee justice, to give everybody a fair shot.”
