Frank Luntz, a GOP pollster and political strategist, says that Joe Biden's presidency depends on winning only one of three key states. He says North Carolina, Florida and Ohio win the election.
"If Donald Trump wins all three, he'll be there," Luntz said "Squawk Box." "If Biden wins any of these three, it will be Biden's presidency."
Should Trump win all three of these states, the race will be centered in Pennsylvania, where it would take at least a few days to find out the winner "Because it takes them the longest to count (votes)," he noted.
Luntz believes that any question of who might be the winner of today's election should be resolved "in 24 hours".
“I think this cannot be resolved in 24 hours. I don't think it will be until December 1st, ”he said. "But I think it will take two or three days and people may get the wrong impression based on which votes are counted early."
Early polls have seen record turnouts in the past few weeks, and reports suggest that voters are facing long waits as they brave the lines and Covid-19, their votes in what is considered by many to be the most important election of recent times submit.
President Donald Trump posted messages urging his supporters to vote. His messages have been far more subdued than usual as he has launched repeated attacks against Democratic leaders in recent weeks and downgraded the mail-in voting process. The president expects a high turnout for Republicans to win today's election.
