On Monday, the electors gathered in 50 states and therefore the District of Columbia on Monday to formally affirm President-elect Joe Biden ’s victory within the Nov. 3 election. It takes 270 body votes to win the presidency.


Democrat Joe Biden: 306

Republican Donald Trump: 232

President-elect Joe Biden says local election officials and workers endured threats of violence and verbal abuse while ensuring that democracy prevailed within the November election.

In a speech Monday after the body affirmed his victory, Biden said that the threats were “simply unconscionable” but that the workers showed courage and commitment to free and fair elections within the face of the coronavirus pandemic.

He said President Donald Trump’s lawyers brought “dozens and dozens and dozens” of legal challenges of the election results, but whenever they were found to be without merit.

Biden says Trump’s team repeatedly made arguments to state legislatures, officials and even the U.S. Supreme Court, “and in every case no cause or evidence was found to reverse or question or dispute the results.”

Did you hear about the electoral college? I guess they finished their vote. From what I read there is a consensus that Joe Biden will be the next president. I’m not sure that President Trump is convinced though. He seems to be convinced that he won. What do you think about all that?
