Full List Of States Won By Joe Biden And Donald Trump In #USElection2020

The full list of states won by Joe Biden and Donald Trump in the Us Election 2020 has emerged.

Naija News reports that the list of the states won by the United States politicians is coming after Joe Biden was on Saturday declared the winner of the US Presidential election for the year 2020.

This online news platform understands that Biden who contested the election on the platform of the Democratic Party defeated Donald Trump who contested the election on the platform of the Republican Party with 284 to become the 46th president of the United States. Trump garnered just 214 votes.

The 2020 US Presidential Election was called for the Democratic Party candidate, with the challenger picking up 284 electoral college votes, after Associated Press called Pennsylvania for Biden.

Apart from Pennsylvania, the Associated Press also called Arizona, with 11 electoral college votes, for Biden, although a number of other media outlets in the United States are yet to do so, leaving the former US Vice President on 279 for them (including Nevada), still enough to win the election.

Biden currently leads by over four million votes in terms of individual ballots counted across the US , with 74,811,378 to incumbent President Donald Trump’s 70,554,537.

Naija News reports that  there are 538 electoral votes up for grabs in total in the ongoing US presidential election, with a candidate needing half plus one of this number – 270 – to be elected president.
