Tomorrow, Tuesday, November 3, 2020, the Presidential elections will be held in the U.S.. Challenging for the 59th election (excluding indirect elections) will be Donald Trump, outgoing President, and Joe Biden. The elections are certainly going to be very popular.

The turnout at the elections
In these last weeks of the election campaign there is talk of a very high turnout at the next elections. The elections that have had the highest turnout in the last 20 years are those of 2008. With the motto “Yes We Can” President Obama won the majority. In 2016 the turnout was high with 55.5%. It will be interesting to see what the turnout in 2020 will be. Compared to 2016, the population that can vote has grown by 5 million. From about 250 million in 2016, it has risen to 255,200,373. Another interesting detail: the most attended elections after World War II were those of 1960. In that year, more than 62.8% of those eligible voted.
The 2016 elections
According to the latest surveys (here a very good link: https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2020/president/2020_elections_electoral_college_map.html) Biden has a national lead of about 7 points on Trump. In fact the Democratic candidate is given at 51.0% and Trump at 44.1%. As we have learned, however, the figure on a national level counts relatively. The last elections ended with H. Clinton ahead of Trump by 2.1% nationwide. But the better distribution in the different states allowed Trump to have the vote of 304 large voters against Clinton’s 227.
The unknown of Covid-19
Compared to the classic elections these are certainly in these we are talking about a new theme. The Covid-19 has in fact had a strong impact both on the lives of Americans and on the consensus of the Leaders. In this sense, the cases of Covid-19 have developed in all states. In this analysis a few days ago, we showed that out of 100,000 inhabitants, North and South Dakota were affected.

The American economy
In recent months, unemployment rates have risen in all states. Even in territories like Vermont, North and South Dakota, Utah and New Hampshire where the unemployment rate is very low, the rate has risen. Comparing the data between the unemployment rate of September 2020 and September 2019, in fact, all states are on the rise. This will also be an important topic for discussion.
|State Name||Unemployment rate Sep-2019||Unemployment rate Sep-2020||Difference from September '19 to September '20|
|District of Columbia||5.3||8.7||3.4|
