Democrat Joe Biden, Wins Presidential Elections in America

[post_slider]

The decision seemed easy for United States citizens during the elections. The US electoral commission declared democrat Joe Biden as the 46th Presidential elect of the country after the Pennsylvania votes pushed him past the 270-victory mark. Joe Biden, therefore, is the fourth President to defeat an incumbent President in history. His running mate, Kamala Harris, is the first black female vice president.

The Elections

On 3rd November 2020, registered American voters cast their ballots in their respective polling stations. Among the major rivals was Donald Trump, former president, and Joe Biden, the incumbent President. According to the official results, Joe Biden had won the elections with over 4 million votes. The states of Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania played a major role in his victory. As in 2016, these states were Trump’s stronghold.

According to electoral analysis, the county votes were not the same as in 2016. The primary reason Biden won was because of the high voter turnout in the metropolitan and the suburbs. Biden secured a solid turnout from cities to the suburbs, escalating his chances of victory. Meanwhile, the rural areas had cast their votes for Trump, quite the opposite of 2016. Another reason is some areas swung to Biden. Voters from Philadelphia and other parts showed up in large numbers in his support. Reports showed that blacks turned up in large numbers to help Biden secure victory.

This is unlike in 2016, where these states vouched for Trump. Counties with many young voters also turned out in large numbers for Biden. This was unprecedented as normally young voters showed less attendance in voting. Biden also gathered gains in college-educated areas. Most of these counties voted in his favor.

Celebrations

Biden’s victory sparked excitement and jubilations among his supporters. His family, friends, political colleagues, and the United States at large sent congratulatory notes to appreciate him. While officially addressing the Public after being declared President-elect, he urged Americans to stay united regardless of the differences between democrats and republicans. He promised to be a leader to all Americans despite their race.

Many global leaders joined in congratulating President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris for conquering in 2020 US elections.

Canadian leader Justin Trudeau congratulated Biden and Kamala and emphasized the great relationship between the US and Canada. He said he was looking forward to working together with them and building their alliance further.

Strong Bonds and Good Leadership

In a tweet, Irish Prime Minister Michael Martin talked about Biden’s American Irish heritage and his friendship with their nation. He stated he expected welcoming him back home and working with him.

The Prime Minister of Australia, Scott Morrison, talked about the great friendship between Australia and the US. He said American leadership is indispensable to meeting challenges, upholding rules, norms, and standards of the international community.
