Many news outlets predict that Joe Biden will be the next President of the United States. Today, he was officially named President-Elect. As of now, Joe Biden is currently in the lead with 264 electoral votes, with current President Donald Trump with only 214 electoral votes. As the swing states of Nevada, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Georgia waiver between republican and democratic; Biden inches closer and closer to acquiring the presidency.

Today, Biden leads by more than seven thousand votes. Many speculate that Biden owes Stacy Abrams a huge thank you for her work in Georgia. Founder of Fair Fight Action, Abram and her organization registered more than 800,000 new voters. Breaking early voting records Georgia collected an unprecedented 3 million voters.

Up until now, President Trump refuses to formally concede defeat claiming that voter fraud in several key states. Trump has continuously used his social media platform to spew illegitimate claims regarding the election.
