The United States Presidential Election, one of the most talked about elections in the recent years. It appears everyone was invested in the outcome in one way or another, from frantically watching the poll numbers, to discussing their views with their peers. To be honest, this election drew a lot of publicity to both candidates, both good and bad. But what exactly made this election different from all the others?

For President Trump and Joe Biden, the number of votes that each candidate received were awfully close together. The people of America watched the numbers rise as though they were studying them to a great degree, all due to the grand amount of anticipation that this election had created. Everyone, of course, had a different opinion as to who deserved to win the election.

Many people were ecstatic about Biden’s victory, but individuals began to take a closer look at the polls. Through their search, they found pieces of information that were shocking.

The numbers in Pennsylvania were shocking. Emmett Tyrell Jr. from the Washington Times reported the outstanding number of votes that Biden had gained from Pennsylvania in comparison to President Trump. Tyrell writes, “At a hearing in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, on Nov. 25 an expert testified to the Pennsylvania Senate Majority Committee that a batch of ballots recorded 570,000 votes for Joe Biden and only 3,200 votes for Donald. That would be 99.4% of the votes went to Mr. Biden and with that batch he won the election” (Tyrell).

Investigations are still currently under way in order to discover if voter fraud really did influence the outcome of the election. If no fraud is proven to be found, Joe Biden is set to become the next President of the United States.
