The world is waiting: Who is It?

The Results of the 2020 election.

As of November 7, 2020, the 46th president of the United States is going to be Democrat Joe Biden, who currently holds a total of 290 electoral votes, to President Trump’s 232 electoral votes.  President Trump, however, has not conceded yet or acknowledged his defeat. He has stated there is reason to believe widespread voter fraud has been a problem during the 2020 election.

“We won’t let a RIGGED ELECTION steal our Country!” is a quote pulled from President Trump’s Twitter. He claims that there are videos proving the existence of voter fraud, but these have been debunked. “Some videos are completely manufactured, while others are real videos of genuine counting that has been taken out of context to try to imply some sort of wrongdoing,” journalists Fergal Gallagher, Catherine Sanz, and Lena Camilletti said in an article on the ABC News Website.

Though many will continue to believe these false allegations, there is nothing to worry about. Many people have investigated this issue and they have debunked it. Even if voter fraud was proven, there is no possibility that President Trump can surpass President-Elect Biden’s 5 million vote lead, but the House and Senate are much closer than the presidential election.

In the House, the Democrats are in the lead with 219 seats to the Republican’s 204 seats, with some counties still undecided. A party needs to have 218 to have a majority, making the Democratic party in control of the House. Even though the Democrats have the majority, their majority has been trimmed back making the possibility of a flip when voting possible.  While the House already has a definite winner, the Senate is a different story.

The Republicans are leading the Senate as of November 16th with 50 seats to the Democrats 46 seats.  The control of the Senate is not yet decided but may be decided by a Georgia runoff happening in January of 2021. This runoff could very well determine the results of this election.

Although many do not accept it, the election of 2020 is coming to an end. Although we might not know who has won the Senate, the House and presidential election are clear. The Democrats have kept hold of the house, and the 46th president of the United States is Joseph R. Biden.
