A Month After Election Day, Uncertainty Lingers at the Federal Level
Polling aggregation website FiveThirtyEight.com reported this week that four weeks after Election Day, we still don’t have complete election results from around the country. However, here’s what we do know when it comes to control of the federal government in early 2021:
It appears Joe Biden will win 306 electoral votes and President Trump will win 232.
The U.S. Senate will have at least 50 Republicans and 48 Democrats, with the two Georgia seats to be decided in a runoff election Jan. 5.
U.S. House Democrats will have at least 222 seats and Republicans will have at least 211. (Republicans are currently leading the two uncalled races — one in New York and one in Iowa — by a combined 18 votes. Both races rank among the closest federal elections in U.S. history.)
