Final results pending recounts and legal challenges.

Decision Desk HQ has declared Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden the winner in the 2020 presidential election, the first major outlet to make a call in the race. A handful of battleground states remain hotly contested, and other outlets have yet to make a final call in the presidential race.
Decision Desk HQ’s model now shows the Democratic candidate with a winning total, after Biden edged ahead of President Trump by around 5,000 votes Friday morning in the key battleground state of Pennsylvania, with 2 percent of the vote still outstanding. The model projects Biden winning with 273 electoral votes, just over the 270 a presidential candidate needs to be declared the victor.
