The political scientist called the differences between the current US elections and the 2016 elections

The executive director of the CIS-EMO monitoring organization Stanislav Byshok spoke in an interview with RT about the main differences between the 2020 US presidential elections from the 2016 elections.

“The first thing that catches your eye is that in 2016 by the next morning (or by night in America) we already knew almost exactly who the winner was.

This year there is no such situation, that is, there is still a significant amount of uncertainty.

The second point: if in 2016 Trump's victory was a huge surprise for the vast majority of people who commented and followed this, now, in 2020, by and large, the victory of one or the other is perceived with approximately the same probability, "Byshok explained.

According to the analyst, to a large extent, this election has become an "anti-rating war."

“Because those people who supported and support Joe Biden, in general, also do not see him as some bright, interesting and new politician, rather they support him as just an opponent of Donald Trump and as a person who could be such a president of the status quo - that is, would cancel all or a lot of some of Trump's innovations and would return to 2016, that is, relatively speaking, would continue the line of President Obama. While we see that the situation is not yet fully understood in USA ", - concluded Byshok.

Earlier, American leader Donald Trump said that they were "trying to steal" his election victory.

The US elections officially ended with the closure of polling stations in Alaska at 01:00 Washington DC (09:00 Moscow time).
