Elections in the US: why they can’t be compared to the 2000 elections when Bush beat Gore in court

Al Gore and George W. Bush faced each other in the 2000 elections.

Hours after the polls closed in last week’s US elections, when the votes were still being counted, President Donald Trump declared himself the winner, denounced fraud, without providing evidence, and announced that he would go “to court. Supreme “to dispute the results.

For many, it was a bad memory of exactly 20 years ago: George W. Bush went to court to challenge the vote count and a court decision was the one that gave him the victory against the Democrat Al Gore.

However, drawing parallels between the two processes can be misleading.

The disputes for the 2000 elections were reduced to a single state, Florida, where only a few hundred votes separated the two candidates.
