Biden Harris 2020
Congratulations to President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, the first Black, Indian American, female to hold that title.
The 2020 Presidential election has been pretty unconventional, to say the least. The main difference is that it is taking place during a pandemic. That alone changed some things that have been considered 'normal' until now, which included early and mail-in voting. This year has also seen the highest registered voter turnout, which in turn gave Biden the most and Trump the second most votes for any presidential candidate. At the time of this post, Biden has about 5 million more popular votes.
The other interesting aspect of this presidential race has been the behavior and attitude of the incumbent. While it is not a law, the normal and expected thing for the losing candidate to do is to concede, or acknowledge and yield, and move on and congratulate the winner. It is not a speech any candidate wants to give, but it definitely shows class and willingness to cooperate.
While the election is still not technically over (since some states are still counting their ballots), almost all media outlets have projected Joe Biden as the winner. And in terms of mathematics and pure logic, there is an extremely slim chance that the results would end up flipped the other way. Personally speaking, I am happy with the results of this election and am ready for a change for the better.
Whatever the next four years bring, I hope this new administration is able to do good by the American people.
