Election results declare Joe Biden the next President of the United States

By Kaitlyn Resline


Democrat nominee Joe Biden has been projected to win the 2020 election race against Republican incumbent Donald Trump.

Biden is currently leading with 279 electoral votes against Trump’s 214 votes, according to the Washington Post. Biden’s running mate Kamala Harris sets a precedent as the first female, Black-American, and Indian-American to hold the office of the Vice President.

Results are still being counted in Alaska, Arizona, Georgia, and North Carolina. 

Biden is currently leading in Arizona with 0.4% of the votes and in Georgia with 0.2%. Trump is leading in North Carolina with 1.4% and in Alaska with 28.6%. 

As of November 10 the Senate is split 48-48. Party control is expected to be determined after the results of two Georgia run-off elections in January. Alaska and North Carolina have not called their races yet. 

The Democrats are expected to keep the 218 House of Representatives majority with a slim margin. They have lost four seats to Republicans, who currently have 201 seats.

Some races are still being determined as more mail-in-votes are counted.
