Now that the elections in the Electoral College have come to end, a new Senate surge has acknowledged what has been obvious for weeks: Joe Biden is the elected president.
Biden won with a strong lead of 306 electoral votes meanwhile Trump losing by 232, the same margin Trump boasted about when he won the US elections four years ago.
Trump’s unsupported fraud allegations created subtly anxious environment but nothing was proven.
The 55 electoral votes from California place Biden over the top. The first state to report was Vermont with 3 votes. Hawaii was the last with 4 votes.
The Republicans are still in disbelief and refuse to acknowledge Biden’s lead in the presidential elections. However, their opposition has no direct or indirect effect on the electoral process. The elected Democrat is to be sworn in next month.
Former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton also voted for Biden.
The results of the voting process will be sent to Washington DC and formally counted in a joint session of Congress on 6 January presided over by Vice-President Mike Pence. (Source: BBC)
