USElection: Electoral College confirms Biden victory, Donald Trump lost

The Electoral College decisively confirmed Joe Biden on Monday as the United States next president, ratifying his November victory in an authoritative state-by-state repudiation of President Donald Trump’s refusal to concede he had lost.

USElection: Joseph R. Biden Jr. emerges as President, defeats Donald Trump

The presidential electors gave Biden a solid majority of 306 electoral votes to Trump’s 232,

the same margin that Trump bragged was a landslide when he won the White House four years ago.

Heightened security was in place in some states as electors met to cast paper ballots,
with masks, social distancing and other pandemic precautions the order of the day.
The results will be sent to Washington and tallied in a Jan. 6 joint session of Congress over which Vice President Mike Pence will preside.

For all Trump’s unsupported claims of fraud, there was little suspense and no change

as every one of the electoral votes allocated to Joe Biden and the president in last month’s popular vote went officially to each man.

On Election Day, the Democrat topped the incumbent Republican by more than 7 million in the popular vote nationwide.

California’s 55 electoral votes put Biden over the top. Vermont, with 3 votes, was the first state to report. Hawaii, with 4 votes, was the last.
