Since my class and I have made quite a big buzz about it *talked about who would win Pennsylvania while playing Bulldog*, I thought Buzzers would be interested in it too! And thus I have collected information, poll data, and data from credible sources *CNN, The Guardian, Financial Times etc* to show you how it’s going at the moment.
1. Who is winning what state?
So far, Biden has won:
- New York
- New Hampshire
- New Mexico
- District of Columbia
- New Jersey
- Rhode Island
And, Trump has won electoral votes from:
- North Dakota
- South Carolina
- South Dakota
- West Virginia
There are some states that haven’t chosen yet, so if there are states that choose before 7pm, then you’ll know today!
Biden has 17 states, so far.
Trump has 23 states, so far.
It’s not the number of electoral votes from states you have that count, it’s how many votes from that state. You can have 50 states that each have 1 vote, and that’ll make less of a difference.

4. How many electoral votes do each have?
Biden has 264 electoral votes so far. (Source: The Guardian)
Trump has 214 electoral votes so far. (Same source.)
5. When will we know who is President?
Since there are 39.5 million people in California alone, many of those are of age to vote and thus will be voting. So far, it is the 6th of November and since there are many votes, patience will be requisite. At least we’ll know at one point!
6. Who are the people running for US President?
We have Joe Biden, Democrat.
We have Donald Trump, Republican.
And many others, who have dropped out of the race.
So, it’s between Biden and Trump.
7. Previous work in the government for the candidates
Biden: Was US Vice President alongside Barack Obama for 8 years.
Trump: Was President the last four years.
8. Any questions?

In the end, whenever we know who is president or if there are new updates or anything similar, we will update this article until the President is announced, and that will be in a separate article!
