Dr. Amoako Baah, a Ghanaian political scientist, is optimistic that Democratic candidate, Joe Biden, will win the 2020 US elections.
Speaking in an interview with host of the Asaase Breakfast Show, Kojo Mensah, on Tuesday, 3 November 2020, Dr. Baah said the performance of Biden in most of the states is an indication that he will win massively.
“Look at Georgia, Georgia is Republican, now there is a great possibility that Biden will win Georgia. Look at Texas, before you don’t talk about Texas and Democrats, the last Democrat who warn Texas was Jimmy Carter in 1978,” he recalled.
“So, when you see that Biden is doing well even in Texas you know Trump is in trouble, and so the demographic has changed and people willingness to vote against party lines have changed,” Dr. Baah stated.
He blamed president Donald Trump for turning a deaf ear to the advice of experts on critical issues on America’s development.
“People want peace, they want to be able to make predictions about business and all that. Trump is using the stock market as a gain, but the stock market is not the economy of the US. It is just one indicator of how much money people are making when the stock market is doing well. It does mean Americans are doing well, how many Americans have money to invest in the stock market? That’s his problem, he doesn’t listen to experts, that is another thing,” Dr. Baah told Asaase Radio.
The former lecturer at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology criticised Trump for describing the election as flawed.
“This is what is bad about Trump, his one term president almost destroyed the whole … presidency; you lose and you concede. The news media will not wait for the state to count all the votes before they come and say this one has one, he is just saying something ahead of time so that when he loses, he can say, I told you.”
Americans have started voting in one of the most decisive election in the history of America between Trump and Biden. Nearly 100 million people have already cast their ballots in early voting, putting the country on course for its highest turnout in a century.
Both rivals spent the final hours of the race rallying in a key swing states. National polls give a firm lead to Biden, but it is a closer race in the states that could decide the outcome.
