17

The counting of votes for the US president is underway. In the results so far, Democrat candidate Joe Biden leads and Trump is way behind. If US President Donald Trump fails to win the election for a second consecutive term, he will be the first president in three decades to lose the next election while in office.

In 1992, George HW Bush even failed to win his second term when Democrat Bill Clinton won the election. Since Bush, all three US presidents – Bill Clinton, George W. Bush (Jr) and Barack Obama – have won reelection. Whereas in the past 100 years, only four presidents have lost an election contested for a second consecutive term.

What is the status of the results now?

Two days after the election, no candidate has received the necessary votes to win. But Biden has reached the figure of 264 by winning the decisive states of Wisconsin and Michigan. Donald Trump has received 214 electoral college votes. However, the incumbent president’s road is difficult, as Trump will have to win the four remaining “Battleground” states of Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Georgia and Nevada to reach the magic figure of 270. Battlegrounds are called states where the trend is not clear. A clear victory requires at least 270 electoral college votes to be the winner out of 538 electoral college members.
