{ object.primary_image.title }}

With Georgia added to his tally, Biden would have 306 electoral votes compared to Trump’s 232. President-elect Joe Biden widened his electoral vote lead against incumbent President Donald Trump on Friday after multiple decision desks called the state of Georgia in his favor.

Electoral College vote: How to watch live streams, coverage on CNN, MSNBC, and elsewhere

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Electors will meet in all 50 states and the District of Columbia to cast their ballots. Here’s how to watch the proceedings. In a normal presidential election, the meeting of the electors would be a minor blip in the news cycle, but ever since Joe Biden was declared the winner of the 2020 presidential race more than a month ago, legal challenges from President Trump and his supporters—many of whom have falsely alleged fraud or sought to overturn the results—have placed a greater-than-usual attention on the day the Electoral College actually votes. That day is today. Here’s what to know: Read Full Story

The U.S. is more divided than ever. Your business could be the bridge

{ object.primary_image.title }}

A strategist and former political adviser counsels companies to listen to consumers, stay true to their values, and find common ground. President-elect Joe Biden is expected to call for unity in his inaugural address on Wednesday, but he faces an uphill battle: America is more politically divided as at any time in our nation’s history. In November Biden received 81 million votes, seven million more votes than his opponent, Donald Trump. Despite Biden’s victory, a vocal minority of citizens have refused to acknowledge his win, culminating in the storming of the United States Capitol on January 6 (an act, in my opinion, of domestic terrorism).

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Compared to other groups, Latino voters are more worried about the crisis, more willing to take action, and more likely to say they will vote for a candidate because of their stance on climate change. President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden are in a dead heat in Texas, a state that has swung Republican in every presidential election since 1976. If Biden pulls off the unthinkable and defeats Trump in Texas, it will be by mobilizing Latino voters. Read Full Story

Pramila Jayapal and Mondaire Jones declare that ‘the era of small ideas is over’

{ object.primary_image.title }}

The two politicians explain how the progressive wing of the Democratic Party is thinking about how it would work with a potential Biden administration. It’s easy enough to stay united as a political party against a common adversary (in this case, Donald Trump). But, whenever the Democratic Party is in power, it gets harder for different factions, with distinct policy visions, to come together in the same way—and that may be the challenge for the progressive wing under a potential President Joe Biden in 2021.

How activists have geared up to stop Trump from disrupting the ballot count

{ object.primary_image.title }}

From street protests to lobbying social media, activists prepared a wide variety of tactics to counteract the president’s ability to throw doubt on the election or interfere with tabulating the results. In the first presidential debate, President Trump was asked if he would pledge not to declare victory until the election was independently certified. He notably didn’t say yes and instead made baseless claims about voter fraud. On November 4, unsurprisingly, Trump prematurely claimed that he had won. On November 5, he called for states to stop counting votes, even though he was behind Biden in enough states to give Biden an Electoral College victory. Read Full Story
