More than 80 million Americans have already voted, that is 57 percent of the 2016 votes.

According to a Reuters/IPSOS poll, Biden is leading by 8 points and 51 percent voters are supporting Joe Biden.

COVID-19 could be a spoiler in 13 states. Weekly average of new cases rose 45 percent in two weeks.

Biden has a safe lead in about 24 states and is winning around 290 electoral votes. Some swing states could change things.

The US Supreme Court allowed key swing states of Pennsylvania and North Carolina to accept absentee ballots for several days after the election. In the case of absentee ballots in Pennsylvania, the Supreme Court has extended the deadline by 3 days after the polls. While for North Carolina, the court has allowed an extension of 9 days.

Although the move has been welcomed by Democrats, there is a fear that the result could be challenged if the margin of victory is close. Another concern is that Amy Coney Barrett - a Republican nominee - who was recently confirmed as a Supreme Court judge, could preside over election related case after November 3.

Meanwhile in a survey conducted by IPSOS, 36 percent of Indian's say Trump will win the election. The survey was conducted across 25 countries with 18,500 respondents.

To discuss this all this, Parikshit Luthra spoke to Anthony Scaramucci, former director of Communications at White House, Joshua Douglas Professor of Law at University of Kentucky and Amit Adarkar, MD of IPSOS India.
