Democrat Joe Biden has won the US presidential election against his Republican opponent, current President Donald Trump. Biden reached the required number of electors on Saturday.

The defining moment, Biden’s victory in Pennsylvania, came after five tense days of counting.

In the hours after the polls closed on Tuesday, the former vice president turned out to have performed somewhat less convincingly than previously predicted by the polls and most election models.

Trump managed to win a number of important swing states at that stage, including Florida. A quick victory thus fell out of reach of his Democratic opponent. Finally, a neck-and-neck race followed in five swing states, where results trickled in.

The results from the 50 US states came slower than in previous elections. Because of the corona crisis, more than 100 million Americans voted early or by mail. In many states, the counting of votes could not begin until election day.

This caused Biden to slowly but surely get stronger in the fight: a majority of the postal votes went to the Democrats, while Republican voters went to the polls more often on election day and their votes were usually counted earlier.

Trump claimed several times, without any evidence, that fraud was taking place and filed lawsuits. He also said incorrectly that he had won the battle. While many of those lawsuits are still ongoing, it’s unlikely that the Democratic former vice president’s victory can be successfully challenged.
