The record for most votes ever obtained is held by Biden: How many votes did he win in 2020?

We may have just voted in the 2020 presidential election, but the 2024 contest is swiftly coming.

President Joe Biden is the Democratic frontrunner, but author Marianne Williamson and Minnesota Rep. Dean Phillips are fighting him. With former President Donald Trump leading other Republican candidates and polling strongly against Biden, the Biden campaign is preparing for another “Biden vs. Trump” contest.

Do you have a sense of déjà vu? Here’s everything you need to know about the figures that helped Biden win the presidency in 2020.

In 2020, how many people voted for Biden?

According to the Federal Election Commission, Biden received more than 81 million votes in the 2020 presidential election. That is slightly more than 51% of the popular vote. Biden has the most votes ever received by a US presidential candidate.

He earned 306 electoral votes, well exceeding the 270 required to win.

The Electoral College is the presidential election process established by the United States Constitution. In most cases, the candidate who received the most votes in a state receives all of that state’s electoral votes, though Maine and Nebraska split these votes.

Maine, for example, gave Biden three of its four electoral votes in the 2020 election and Trump one. The number of electoral votes a state receives is determined on its population size and the number of representatives of Congress it has.

In 2020, who received the most votes?

In the 2020 election, Biden won both the popular vote and the Electoral College.

Because of the Electoral College, winning the popular vote does not ensure the presidency. There have been five presidents who did not win the popular vote yet were elected. For example, in 2016, Trump received 304 electoral votes to Hillary Clinton’s 227 but lost the popular vote by nearly 2.9 million votes.
