If Guam’s vote for U.S. President counted, former Vice President Joe Biden would already have an edge.

While the votes don’t count “Where American’s Day Begins”, Guam’s ballots do include a slot for the Presidential race. The Island’s straw poll is seen as an early indicator of how Americans could sway in an election.

Biden took 14,445 votes, accounting for 55.36%; President Donald Trump meantime garnered 10,938, or 41.92% of the vote on Guam.

The numbers came after all 67 precincts were counted around 7:30am Wednesday.
