US Election: Joe Biden Becomes First-Ever Presidential Candidate To Receive 80 Million Votes

Published

on

Joe Biden, President-elect total tally of votes has surpassed 80 million, making him the first-ever presidential candidate in United States history to achieve the feat.

The vote-tracking count from the Cook Political Report reported the Democrat has so far received roughly 51 percent of the national popular vote to Donald Trump’s 47.1 percent.

Biden is the first presidential challenger to capture more than 50% of the popular vote while running against an incumbent since Franklin Delano Roosevelt defeated Herbert Hoover in 1932.

A total of 80,033,996 ballots have been cast for Biden, according to Cook Political Report data.

The previous all-time record of 69,498,516 was set by Barack Obama (with Biden as his running mate) in 2008.

Trump’s vote total of 73,878,907 is the most ever for a Republican candidate, as well as the most ever for a presidential loser.

More than 156 million people voted in the 2020 election, a turnout of more than 66 percent.

Mr. Biden is preparing to formally announce members of his incoming national security team after the federal agency responsible for his transition to the White House announced that it will begin after Democrats and watchdog groups criticized its chief for “stonewalling” at the president’s behest.

In a letter to Mr. Biden, the General Services Administration’s Emily Murphy said“I was never directly or indirectly pressured by any Executive Branch official — including those who work at the White House or GSA — with regard to the substance or timing of my decision.”

Later, Mr. Trump said that “in the best interest” of the US, he recommended that Ms. Murphy “and her team do what needs to be done with regard to initial protocols, and have told my team to do the same”.
