Will swing states play a crucial role in US Presidential Election 2020? Here's what experts say

Updated : November 03, 2020 20:20:07 IST

More than a 100 million Americans have already voted ahead of the Election Day. Joe Biden has an 8 point lead over Donald Trump but the voter turnout will be crucial to the result in at least 10-11 swing states.

Trump has a marginal lead of 1-2 points in Iowa, Texas and Ohio and Biden is leading by 2-5 points in at least 6 other states.

However this time there could be a delay in announcement of the results. Trump has warned of cheating in early votes and could mount a legal challenge.

To discuss this, Parikshit Luthra spoke to Nicholas Stephanopoulos, Professor at Harvard Law School, Steve Herman, Bureau Chief - White House at Voice of America, Paul Krishnamurty, Political Analyst at Betfair and Tom Bonier, CEO of Target Smart.
