Bernie Sanders had predicted the confusion over mail votes long before voting day.

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders had guessed that results would be delayed as some key battleground states were receiving many mail-in ballots.

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders had guessed that results would be delayed as some key battleground states were receiving many mail-in ballots.Bernie Sanders appeared in a TV show where he explained why he endorses Joe Biden for the 2020 presidential election. During that show, he said that states like Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin could be receiving huge amounts of Mail-in ballots, and results may get delayed for a few days. He predicted that Trump could claim his victory on the election night, and the next day would cry foul over the election.

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.
