    Mr Trump held outdoor rallies in Iowa and Michigan before planned trips to North Carolina, Georgia and Florida – states where polls suggest a tighter race. Speaking in Washington, a town in Michigan north of Detroit, Mr Trump told his supporters that under his leadership the economy is now growing at the fastest rate ever recorded.
     
    Mr Biden held an outdoor rally in Philadelphia. He vowed to address racism and attacked the President’s handling of the pandemic.
     
    More than 9 crore people have already cast their ballots in early voting, putting the country on course for its highest turnout in a century.
