Biden wins US presidential election 2020: which swing states were vital?

Several swing states have proven vital to the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, with Joe Biden finally claiming Pennsylvania on Saturday after five tense days of counting in what had become the decisive battleground in the race for the White House. 

Pennsylvania’s 20 electoral college votes were enough to bring Biden over the 270-vote threshold to claim victory in the US presidential election. Although, his opponent, President Donald Trump, refuses to acknowledge Biden’s victory after launching legal challenges in several states on the back of baseless claims of voter fraud.

Biden has won seven vital swing states to take his total electoral college votes to 290, although the margin of victory in many of these states has been tiny. Less than a handful of swing states remain to called, but North Carolina looks like it will eventually declare Trump as the winner of the state, while Biden looks more likely to take Georgia.

Biden supporters celebrate after major news organizations called the US 2020 Presidential Election for Joe Biden, defeating incumbent US President Donald J. Trump, at Freedom Tower, Miami, Florida.
