Washington (AP) — Joe Biden won the Electoral College in Georgia and its 16 electors. This is an extraordinary victory for Democrats who pushed to expand the map of the Electoral College through the Sun Belt.
Biden’s victory fills the margin of his electoral victory over President Donald Trump. Biden was declared the winner of the November 7 presidential election after flipping Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin into the Democratic line.
Biden currently has 306 electoral votes against Trump’s 232.
Trump won Georgia in 2016, five percentage points ahead of Democrat Hillary Clinton.
In 2020, the Democratic Party focused on the state and saw the state function two years after Democrat Stacey Abrams lost a slight loss to the governor’s election. Both senators in Georgia were voted this year, further enhancing the state’s political profile and boosting spending by external groups trying to influence voters. These two races are heading for the January outflow.
Georgia hasn’t voted for the Democratic presidential candidate since Bill Clinton in 1992.
