WATCH: USELECTION2020 PREDICTION - What to Expect, Which states will finally decide the winner? The countdown is already underway for the US election. US President And Republican Donald J. Trump will go head to head with Democratic challenger Joe Biden for the WhiteHouse on November 3rd. Election Day is Tuesday Nov3.
