More than 90 million Americans have cast general election ballots so far

Source: CNN

(CNN)More than 90 million Americans have voted so far with three days left until Election Day, as a majority of states are reporting record early voting turnout in the 2020 election.

These votes represent almost 43% of registered voters nationwide, according to a survey of election officials in all 50 states and Washington, DC, by CNN, Edison Research, and Catalist.   

Fourteen states have already seen more than half of their registered voters cast ballots ahead of November 3.

Nationwide, the more than 90 million ballots already cast represent about 66% -- almost two-thirds -- of the more than 136.5 million ballots cast in the 2016 presidential election.

This is going to be one for the record books in more ways then one.

I am proud to be an American today.

I am NOT Proud of our Republican Leaders or those that blindly follow them. They are NOT Americans.

Election day could turn out to be a fizzle of sorts, or polls could be swamped.

Hard for me to believe large turnout is driven by enthusiasm for Trump. But, you know, look at the bund rallies and caravans
