Election of 2020 Summary

The 59th presidential election in history took place on November 3, 2020. It was a time when the Covid-19 pandemic shook the world putting entire countries into lockdown. Businesses shut down as the state of the economy was in a downward spiral. At the same time, “Black Lives Matter” protests marched across the country in a stand of police brutality from the murder of George Floyd.

Despite the US having 4% of the world’s population, 20% of all deaths in the world occurred in the United States. Needless to say, the country was particularly hit hard by the virus. Many blamed President Donald Trump for his inaction and downplay of the virus. As a result of all this turmoil, this election had a record number of early voters either by mail or in person.

Despite being one of the most unpopular presidents in history and being impeached twice, Republicans loyally stood by Trump. For the Democratic party, it looked like it would be Bernie Sanders as the front runner. But it turned out to be Joe Biden who was in his seventies, stepped up to run against Donald Trump. Throughout his campaign, Biden gained a lot of momentum. Eventually, he chose Kamala Harris as his running mate.

The country was divided with Donald Trump adding gasoline to the fire. But he still had large followings as the election results were not a total landslide by any means. After America counted the votes Joe Biden won and became the 46th president in American history. He gained 306 electoral votes and 51.3% of the popular vote.
