With results yet to be declared on Election Night, as several key states have not been called for either candidate, Joe Biden delivered an optimistic message to Americans late in the evening on 3 Nov. At a drive-in event in Wilmington, Delaware, the presidential candidate spoke briefly about his confidence in the latest election results and prepared Americans for what may be a delayed outcome ahead. "Look, we feel good about where we are," he said, joined by wife Jill Biden on stage. "We really do. I'm here to tell you tonight, we believe we're on track to win this election. We knew because of the unprecedented early vote and the mail-in vote, it was going to take a while. We're going to have to be patient until the hard work of tallying of the votes is finished. It ain't over until every vote is counted, every ballot is counted."
"As I've said all along, it's not my place or Donald Trump's place to declare who's won the election. That's the decision of the American people."
Biden also commended everyone's patience, and shared that he "felt good" about the current results in key battleground states like Wisconsin, Minnesota, Georgia, and Pennsylvania as many mail-in ballots have yet to be counted. "Look, we can know the results as early as tomorrow morning, but it may take a little longer," he continued. "As I've said all along, it's not my place or Donald Trump's place to declare who's won the election. That's the decision of the American people."
