- Joe Biden and Donald Trump's election race is well on its way as Americans make their way to polling stations
- A global poll, in which nearly 20,000 people from more than 20 countries participated, has backed Biden to become 46th US president
- It seems Biden is a favourite, earning nearly triple the 'votes' Trump scored
Presidential candidates, Joe Biden and Donald Trump, have run out of time to campaign for support in the race to win the United States election.
The two candidates are now awaiting the outcome from their respective campaigns as voters take to the street to cast their ballots.
IPSOS, a global poll platform, was curious to find out how other nations viewed the respective candidates.
Over 20,000 people from 24 different countries were asked to register their opinions on the two men.
Democratic nominee, Biden seems to be a firm favourite, earning nearly triple the 'votes' his competitor scored. IPSOS explained that:
"When asked who they would vote for in the 2020 U.S. Election, many more adults surveyed in most of 24 countries, not including the United States, say they would vote for Democrat candidate Joe Biden over Republican candidate Donald Trump – 48% would cast a ballot for Biden, while 17% would choose incumbent President Trump.”
In South Africa, Biden seems to have won the approval of many, scoring over 50% approval while 28% weren't sure who to support. In comparison, Trump only scored 20%.
Results from Sweden proved that Biden enjoys immense support in this region, with 73% of the respondents giving him their vote.
While India gave Trump the highest number of votes (34%), Biden still came out on top with 38%.
Ironically, Mexico (7%) and Russia (13%) showed the least support for Trump ahead of the results of the election.
Meanwhile, the US former vice president and presidential hopeful Biden has given his supporters his word, saying he will fight for them "come rain or shine."
The 77-year-old gave this assurance on Tuesday, November 3, through a post on Instagram where he commands over 5 million followers.
Biden, a former senator who served as the 47th US vice president under Barack Obama, is being favoured to win the election according to many online poll and predictions.
