Voter Turnout In 2016's Election Was Huge, But 2020's Has Already Smashed Records

Description

The United States' 2020 general election is on track to shatter all previous records for voter turnout. According to Business Insider, nearly 140 million votes have already been counted, exceeding 2016's record-breaking 137.1 million votes. The 2020 total is only expected to soar in the coming hours and days. That's because votes, whether in-person or absentee, continue to be counted across the country. Wednesday, battleground states like North Carolina and Pennsylvania remained undecided. Large states such as California and Texas hadn't yet reported all results. However, by midday on Wednesday, Democrat Joe Biden led President Donald Trump by almost 3 million votes.

  • John Bolton Is Fed Up With GOP Leaders Propping Up Trump's 'Baseless' Claim Of Voter Fraud

    Former White House advisor John Bolton has had it with President Donald Trump's refusal to concede to President-elect Joe Biden. Business Insider reports Bolton asked GOP leaders to go against Trump's assertion that the winner of the 2020 election has not yet been decided. Sunday, Bolton said in an ABC interview that Republican leaders should tell voters 'Trump has lost the election and that his claims of election fraud are baseless.' Substantial evidence indicates that voter fraud has not occurred in this election, including a report from a group of international election observers. Trump's team of lawyers has litigated election results in all key battleground states. However, they have been unsuccessful in virtually every attempt. Right now, the Trump campaign is doing the legal equivalent of pitching pennies. Where are their silver dollars? Where is the evidence?

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
