New York Daily News Sums Up The National Nervousness With Election Day Cover
The New York Daily News summed up the nervousness of the nation with its front page on Tuesday, describing the USA on its cover as the “United States of Anxiety.”
Next to photos of President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden, the tabloid noted the country is “on edge” for the “most divisive Election Day in history.”
The Daily News has become known for Trump-bashing covers, many of which go viral on social media.
On Election Day 2016, the newspaper urged voters to “Stop The Don Con” and send “steady” Democrat Hillary Clinton to the White House with this front page:

Crude Oil Futures Settle Notably Higher
Crude oil prices climbed higher on Tuesday thanks to a weaker dollar and hopes that OPEC and allies will likely postpone a plan to ease output cuts in January.
West Texas Intermediate Crude oil futures for December settled higher by $0.85 or about 2.3% at $37.66 a barrel.
Brent crude futures were rising about $0.85 or 2.2% at $39.81 a barrel.
The dollar’s weakness was due largely to expectations that Democratic Party candidate Joe Biden might push for bigger U.S. stimulus and take a freer approach to trade, if he manages to win the presidential election.
OPEC+ is scheduled to meet on November 30 and December 1 to discuss production plans, and many are of the view that the group will likely decide to delay plans to ramp up output.
The dollar’s weakness, ahead of the Federal Reserve’s two-day monetary policy meeting that begins tomorrow, supported oil’s uptick.
The dollar index fell to 93.29 around late morning, and despite recovering to 93.59, was still notably down, losing nearly 0.6%, from previous close.
Meanwhile, traders were looking ahead to weekly inventory data from American Petroleum Institute (API) and U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA).
The API’s report is due later today, while EIA will release its inventory data Wednesday morning.
What happens if the election results are contested?
Even in a normal election year, the contest for president is not exactly straightforward. But this year is different.
A large volume of mail-in ballots means counting and canvassing may take longer than usual. The result may be close enough in some states to draw recounts. And experts say the likelihood of legal challenges in one or more battleground states is high.
We diagrammed the legal challenges and recounts that could delay the results, leading to further disputes in the Electoral College. Here’s what happens if things don’t go smoothly.
