Biden gets 306 electoral votes after final count




President-elect Joe Biden is the apparent winner in Georgia and President Donald Trump has won North Carolina, NBC News projected Friday, bringing the presidential race to a close.

After every state has been called by the US networks, Joe Biden has won the US election with 306 electoral votes.

With 99 percent of the vote counted in Georgia, Biden had received 49.5 percent of the vote, while Trump had 49.2 percent.

Biden’s margin in his apparent victory over Trump in the state was 14,152 votes, according to NBC News.

His apparent win there is the first by a Democratic presidential candidate in the state since 1992.

The outcome in Georgia, however, is subject to a planned recount of the state’s votes.

With 99 percent of the vote counted in North Carolina, Trump had 50 percent of the vote, while Biden had 48.6 percent. Trump’s margin of victory over Biden in the state was just over 73,600 votes.

Biden’s projected win in Georgia added 16 Electoral College votes to his tally, while Trump’s projected win in North Carolina added 15 Electoral College votes to his own.

On Thursday, NBC News projected that Biden wins Arizona, a pickup of 11 Electoral College votes for Biden.

As a result, Biden’s final projected Electoral College vote victory over Trump amounted to 306 to 232, according to NBC News.
