Swinging battleground states and crossing the required 270 electoral votes mark, former Vice President Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential race.
The latest results show that Biden won 306 votes against Trump's 232. Biden eclipsed Trump in Wisconsin and Michigan that were the two crucial midwestern battleground states and overtook the president in Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Arizona, where Trump had won in 2016 against Hillary Clinton. Even though Trump had a good lead in the initial stages, counting the mail-in ballots turned the tables in favor of Joe Biden. Democrats had urged their voters to vote by mail due to the COVID-19 pandemic, while President Trump had urged his voters to go out and vote in large numbers on voting day.
Even though the electoral college has not yet been conducted, statewide victory shows that numbers favor Biden.
Biden is now being commonly referred to as the president-elect, since he has won a tight election and is therefore, the presumptive 46th President of the United States.
