Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders had guessed that results would be delayed as some key battleground states were receiving many mail-in ballots.
Bernie predicted thousands of mail-in ballots were left to be tallied at the end of the election day, which complicated the vote count this year. Battleground states such as Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Georgia received significant Mail-in Ballots and absentee ballots. The contests in key battleground states across the nation remained too close to call and were expected to be delayed for a week. Moreover, Donald Trump claimed prematurely on the election night that he has won big and accused the election officials were attempting to deprive him of the win as he vowed to take legal action to halt the process. Trump has repeatedly vented outrage over the mail-in voting system. The next day Trump was trailing in most states, with mail-in ballots added to the count.
