Joe Biden Says He's 'On Track' To Win 2020 Election

Joe Biden Says He's 'On Track' To Win 2020 Election

Joe Biden says he's 'on track' to win the 2020 US presidential election.

Speaking to a crowd of people in Delaware, the Democratic challenger told supporters that he was confident of the way some states were set to go, and also thanked his fans for their patience.

The 77-year-old said: "Good evening. Your patience is commendable. We feel good about where we are."

He went on: "We knew this was going to go long, but who knew we would go into maybe tomorrow morning, maybe even longer!

"But we feel good about where we are. I'm here to tell you tonight we believe we're on track to win this election.

"It ain't over until every vote, every ballot is counted."

Shortly after Biden's statement, incumbent Donald Trump accused the Democrats of 'stealing votes'.

Taking to Twitter, he said: "We are up BIG, but they are trying to STEAL the Election. We will never let them do it. Votes cannot be cast after the Polls are closed!"

Earlier in the evening, it was also announced Trump had taken the key state of Florida.

It represented an important - and much needed - step in the 74-year-old's bid to retain his seat in the White House, giving him 29 Electoral College votes in the battle against Biden.

According to reports, Trump won the state by 5,644,988 (51.3 percent) to 5,267,642 (47.8 percent) for Biden.

Florida is historically significant, with the result going the way of the overall winning candidate in the last six elections - and twice determining the victor.

One person who won't be sitting in the White House, at least not as President, is Kanye West, who conceded defeat in this year's election.

The singer had hoped of taking the White House in this year's election, but admitted that he had fallen well short.

Sharing a photo of himself in front of the Electoral College map, Kanye said: "WELP KANYE 2024."

But it's not the end of the line for Kanye's political aspirations, as his tweet would suggest, not by a long way.

Last month, he sat down for The Joe Rogan Experience to chat about everything from his presidential aspirations, to his faith and a number of other topics of importance to the controversial star - and admitted that he plans on running again in 2024.

Amid the three-hour discussion, which was mostly dominated by Kanye, the 'Famous' hitmaker revealed he first decided he would run for president after having an epiphany in the shower several years ago.

"It was something that God put in my heart back in 2015. A few days before the MTV awards it hit me in the shower," West shared. "When I first thought of it, I just started laughing to myself and all this joy came over my body, through my soul."
