Nearly 80% of Americans say Biden won White House, ignoring Trump’s refusal to concede

Nearly 80% of Americans, including more than half of Republicans, recognize President-elect Joe Biden as the winner of the Nov. 3 election after most media organizations called the race for the Democrat based on his leads in critical battleground states, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll. While the race with Republican incumbent Donald Trump still remained undecided in three states by late Tuesday afternoon, Biden – who needed 270 Electoral College votes to win – had 279 of those votes to 214 for Trump, according to Edison Research. In the popular vote, Biden got 76.3 million, or 50.7% of the total, to 71.6 million, or 47.6%, for Trump.
