After several days of counting votes in key battleground states, most major news outlets called the presidential race for President-elect Joseph R. Biden on Saturday, November 7. Since then, all outstanding states have been called, giving the President-elect a 306-232 Electoral College victory over President Donald J. Trump.

Biden was able to hold all of the states that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton won in 2016. In addition, Biden was able to flip three midwestern “blue wall” states that Trump had won in 2016: Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. On top of that, Biden also flipped Arizona and Georgia, giving him the same number of electoral votes that Trump won in the 2016 election.

Although a small number of votes are still being counted, it is predicted that Biden has earned more than 78 million votes nationwide for 50.9 percent of the popular vote, compared with Trump’s 73 million votes (47.3 percent).

Although President Trump has refused to concede the election, has made unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud, and has pressed dozens of longshot lawsuits to challenge election results, President-elect Biden has started transition procedures to review federal agencies and prepare for a new administration.
