Joe Biden Has Now Received More Votes Than Any U.S. President In History

Biden has broken the record for the popular vote but Trump currently trails by 34 electoral votes.

2020 has been a year that will undoubtedly go down in the history books as one of the most eventful and turbulent years in our recent past. Old headlines pale in comparison to those of 2020 and what better time to be breaking records than this momentous year? Well, to add more significance to this tumultuous presidential race, the Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has now broken the record for the highest number of votes ever received in a United States presidential election.

It by no means indicates that this is cut and dry but according to Associated Press at the time of writing, the 77-year-old former vice president had received over 70,690,000 votes, eclipsing the previous record of 69,498,516 votes.

Biden currently sits ahead of President Donald Trump by around three million votes but this is far from a definitive win. Biden may be winning the popular vote across the whole of the United States but right now the Democratic Party leads Trump’s Republican Party with 248 electoral votes to 214. It is expected to take a few days until the final results are crystal clear as an enormous amount of mail-in votes still need to be counted.
