This was the 59th quadrennial president election ceremony of United States of America and was held on Tuesday, November 3, 2020. The nominees for the election were Joe Biden and Donald Trump who represented the party of Democratic and Republican respectively.
When the result is out finally, it is seen that the former vice president of United States of America Joe Biden has beaten the Republican party representative Donald Trump and vice president Mike Pence along with the help of U.S. senator Kamala Harris. Joe Biden, whose home state is in Delaware, secured his chance in the election with 50.8% while Donald Trump secured 47.4% having his home state in Florida.
The most notable thing is that both Joe Biden and Donald Trump has exceeded Mr. Barack Obama’s record. Barack Obama won 69,498,516 votes in the president election of 2008 and made it a record as no other president could secure that much quantity of votes in the history of president election. In 2020, this record has been broken by both the nominees of election. Mr. Barack Obama’s former former vice president and the recent Democratic nominee Joe Biden has crossed the record mark setting a new record of 74,446,452 votes (50.5% of the whole) in the election of 2020 while the Republican nominee president Donald Trump has also surpassed the record of Mr. Barack Obama with 70,294,341 votes(47.7% of the whole).
CBS News has declared that Joe Biden will be the 46th president of the country after the win in the combat in the state of Pennsylvania on Saturday morning. Exit polls reflect that the voters of the country has considered COVID-19 pandemic and the economy as the most sensible issues. The record-setting numbers of vote on the part of Joe Biden is the indication of high voter turnout in 2020. Such kind of high voter turnout in 2020 is never seen in the past 100 years in America. The supporters of Mr. Biden considered the corona virus pandemic as the most important issue while the supporters of Mr. Trump gave more importance to economy than anything else.
In a speech for the American people Biden paid tribute to that fact on Wednesday and here it is- “Yesterday once again proved that democracy is the heartbeat of this nation,” he said. “Here the people rule. Power can’t be taken or asserted. It flows from the people, and it is their will that determines who will be the president of the United States and their will alone.”
After the result out of the election, Donald has tweeted this- “THE OBSERVERS WERE NOT ALLOWED INTO THE COUNTING ROOMS. I WON THE ELECTION, GOT 71,000,000 LEGAL VOTES. BAD THINGS HAPPENED WHICH OUR OBSERVERS WERE NOT ALLOWED TO SEE. NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE. MILLIONS OF MAIL-IN BALLOTS WERE SENT TO PEOPLE WHO NEVER ASKED FOR THEM!”
