2020 U.S. ELECTION: What you need to know right now

10/26/2020 | 06:11am EST

Oct 26 (Reuters) - -President Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden are down to the final full week of campaigning before the Nov. 3 election, as surging coronavirus cases and a COVID-19 outbreak within Vice President Mike Pence's staff keep the focus of the race on the pandemic. -Trump's campaign again asked the U.S. Supreme Court to block North Carolina's plan for counting absentee ballots that arrive after Nov. 3 Election Day, the latest legal tussle in a wide-ranging fight over mail-in voting. -The Republican-controlled U.S. Senate is expected on Monday to confirm President Donald Trump's nominee, Amy Coney Barrett, as the next justice to the Supreme Court.

-Meet the 'QAnon' caucus: Conspiracy buffs on path to U.S. Congress INVESTOR VIEW Microsoft Corp, which has largely evaded Washington’s scrutiny of Big Tech companies and scored a lucrative $10 billion government contract under the Trump administration, has emerged as a significant backer of the Biden campaign.

BY THE NUMBERS

-Four in ten supporters of both Biden and Trump say they would not accept election defeat in a new Reuters/Ipsos poll. Some said they would take action to make their displeasure known: 22% of Biden supporters and 16% of Trump supporters said they would engage in street protests or even violence if their preferred candidate loses.

-Trump will head to Pennsylvania and speak at rallies in Allentown, Lititz and Martinsburg.

-Biden is expected to remain in his home state of Delaware.
