Staff Reporter: Early voting in the presidential election has started from Friday in four states of the United States. Voting begins Friday morning in Minnesota, as well as in the states of Virginia, South Dakota and Wyoming, local time. Democratic candidate Joe Biden is still ahead of President Donald Trump in the polls. Due to the corona virus (Covid-19) epidemic, many voters are expected to vote in advance and by post this year.
Trump and Biden have been campaigning face-to-face in Minnesota since early voting began on Friday. In 2016, Trump lost to then-Democratic rival Hillary Clinton by 1.5 percentage points in the state. Police in riot gear stormed a rally on Friday, removing hundreds of protesters by truck. Police in riot gear stormed a rally on Friday, removing hundreds of protesters by truck. The protests spread across the country.
Trump took a hard line on the protesters. He called the protesters “extreme leftists” and promised to restore law and order in the city. He said that if Biden wins, those leftists will get more leeway. In front of thousands of supporters on Friday, Trump said he would win because of his economic record in Minnesota.
Biden painted the state’s economic collapse in the Corona epidemic during his election campaign on Friday. He blames Trump for this. He said Republican President Corona did little to combat it. Trump has also stopped performing his duties. Biden has promised to invest লাখ 2 trillion in infrastructure development across the United States if he wins. He also promised to work on climate change.

In Minnesota’s Minneapolis, 44 people turned out within 30 minutes of the polls opening. Some voters said they wanted to vote early in the morning to avoid crowds.
Biden is leading the poll in Minnesota. According to survey website RealClearPolitics, he is ahead of Trump in the state by an average of 10.2 percentage points as of Friday. Biden was sharply critical of the violence surrounding the assassination of George Floyd. He expressed support for the protesters’ movement against racism and police brutality.
Leading opinion polls in Minnesota do not paint a true picture of Biden’s election prospects. In fact, he is ahead of it. Biden is also ahead of Trump in the former Rust Belt states of Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. Trump snatched victory from Hillary in all three states in the 2016 election.
Electoral officials in Fairfax and Arlington, Virginia, said voter turnout was high. They are standing in line outside the polling station.
