Our view

President-elect Joe Biden’s winning tally is approaching a record 80 million votes as Democratic strongholds continue to count ballots and the 2020 election cracks turnout records. 

Biden has already set a record for the highest number of votes for a winning presidential candidate, and President Donald Trump has also notched a high-water mark of the most votes for a losing candidate. With more than 155 million votes counted and California and New York still counting, turnout stands at 65% of all eligible voters, the highest since 1908.
