President Trump on Tuesday defeated Democrat Joe Biden in South Carolina – shattering hopes of the most ambitious Democrats for a landing in Biden.
The AP news agency called Trump shortly after the polls ended at 7pm
The President beat Hillary Clinton by more than 14 points in 2016, but the polls showed a tighter race and RealClearPolitics rated the state as “Leans Trump”.
South Carolina Democrats were excited by the race to compete for the US Senate, with former Democratic Party chairman Jamie Harrison challenging incumbent Republican Senator Lindsey Graham.
Trump has consistently outstripped the former vice president in South Carolina, but some recent results are in error, such as the Quinnipiac University poll in late September that showed Trump a just 1lead. percent score.
