Typically, forecasters and analysts have a pretty good idea which presidential candidate will prevail in the electoral college within a few hours of the final polls closing. But it's not uncommon for the outcome of the election to remain in doubt for several days — or even, like in 2000, several weeks.
Do you trust the ballot counting process across the country? Voting has closed for this poll — here are the results:
- 65% voted no
- 35% voted yes
Watch for another poll this Friday afternoon that we will follow and review starting at News5 at 4 p.m.
As of Thursday morning, President Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden are battling over familiar battleground states — Pennsylvania — and three additional states that are too close to call, in North Carolina, Georgia and Nevada. Voting is done, and now the counting continues.
