2020 Election Results

2020 Election Results

More Americans voted for Joe Biden (81.3M) than voted for the current president (74.2M).

Joe Biden won states totaling 306 Electoral Votes.


This is not a surprising outcome. The current president is the only president since polling began to never get above 50% approval during his term.

Also, the day before the election, the polls showed more support for Joe Biden than for the current president.

These results were certified by elected officials - some were Democrats and some were Republicans. Certifications were completed on December 9, 2020. (Some states had multiple recounts which confirmed Biden’s win there.)

Not once in court did the current president’s campaign allege or give proof of voter fraud.

Pennsylvania: the Trump campaign filed suit in federal court, presented evidence to a federal district court, and got an expedited appeal. The court asked them about voter fraud. Trump’s campaign said this is not a fraud case.”

Wisconsin: the Trump campaign sued in federal court, got an evidentiary hearing and an expedited appeal. They did not allege any instances of voter fraud, they objected only to the administration of the election,” with arguments they should’ve raised before the election.

Georgia: the Trump campaign sued in state court a month after the election, and botched their filing. They did not allege a single unlawfully cast vote, much less voter fraud.

Arizona: three weeks after the election, the Trump campaign sued over Sharpie pens potentially causing overvotes. They had no evidence of anything, much less of voter fraud.
