So it was a close election with Biden winning by a nose*. It was the biggest turnout# in American election history and Trump was pipped at the post* after a late surge* down the finishing straight*.
In English we use terms from horse racing to describe what is happening in elections.
*winning by a nose - To win by the closest of margins
*pipped at the post - The post is the pole at the finishing line and to be “pipped” is to win at the very end
*late surge - when you get a lot of votes towards the end of the election
*finishing straight - the last part of the race towards the finishing line
#turnout - the number of people who voted
A quick opinion poll to see who you think has been the WORST president in U.S. history:
a. Donald Trump
b. Donald Trump
c. Donald Trump
Let us know in the comments, remember it’s just for fun!!
