HQ Policy Desk Calls North Carolina for Trump

One week after America went to the polls, a recent prediction said President Donald Trump was going to win the North Carolina battleground.

“Decision Desk HQ Projects Trump (R) Won The State Of NC And Its 15 Electoral Votes Race Called At 11-10 1:41 PM,” HQ ‘s Decision Desk tweeted Tuesday.

The Associated Press hasn’t called the race yet.

Present returns from around the nation give the presumptive future President-elect Joe Biden the advantage, and many media organisations reported that he was the winner on Saturday.

Trump contested the outcome of the post-election court battle, which remains unanswered. North Carolina has 15 electoral votes, which Trump will require if his challenges in Michigan, Pennsylvania and other states succeed.

Trump is actually leading Biden by 73,300 votes in North Carolina, according to the Fayetteville Observer.

“If I were the people of Biden, I would write down North Carolina, and I hope they have,” said Susan Roberts, a political scientist at Davidson College.

The News and Observer did the calculations and concluded that 144,000 possible votes were yet to be counted. That contains 93,000 mail-in ballots that have not yet been returned and could never have arrived. Another 36,000 mail-in votes have arrived, but they still have to be counted. In comparison, there are 41,000 provisional ballots cast where there are difficulties in the polling.

The prediction of Trump’s win arrived on the same day that Democratic U.S. Senate nominee Cal Cunningham conceded his run to an unsettled Republican Sen. Thom Tillis in another North Carolina race that had been too close to his call.

“The people have spoken and I honour their choices,” Cunningham said.

“While the results of this election show that there are profound political differences in our state and community, the more full storey of our country lies in what unites us: our confidence and trust in our government, our democratic ideals and collective humanity, our mutual aspiration to care for one another, and our conviction that we live in a country that does extraordinary things,” he said.

Tillis said he’s got two goals.

“I know that my job is to fight for the jobs of the hard-working people of our state, which is why my first post-election goal would be to beat COVID-19 and get the economy back on track. North Carolina has a solid record of weathering hurricanes and coming back better than ever before, “he said.

The election gives Republicans, who now have a 53-47 advantage in the Senate, 49-48 advantage in the new Senate that will be seated in January. The GOP seems likely to take part in an Alaska run that has not yet been named. However, membership of the Senate will decide the results of the two January special elections in Georgia.

On Monday, Trump’s campaign manager Bill Stepien told his team that the White House is not yet in Joe Biden’s hands, according to Fox News.

“He’s still in this war,” said Stepien, according to what Fox called the “many people in the building.”

“There is a method,” he said. “Have faith with me.”

Trump 2020 Campaign Communications Chief Tim Murtaugh said on Tuesday that campaign litigation in Pennsylvania “will win,” according to Fox News.
