U.S. Economic Ratings at Time of Election


Candidate Joe Biden proved to be the 'anti-Trump' vote if nothing else, the aging career politician eventually winning tight races in Battleground States of Arizona (0.3%), Georgia (0.23%), Michigan (2.78%), Pennsylvania (1.17%), Wisconsin (0.63%) showcasing a clearly divided electorate (the margin in these states combined was just 277,661 votes). Perhaps quite surprising to the Biden campaign were the losses in both Florida (by 371,686 votes) and Ohio (by 475,669 votes). The numbers suggest this was one of the closest races of recent history and could have been anyone's election victory, not quite the landslide anticipated by many - despite Biden's Electoral Vote count of 306 to 232 and Popular Vote victory of 7,052,770 votes.
* Maine and Nebraska are the only two states that do not follow the 'winner-take-all' rule regarding their Electoral Votes per candidate. This allows for a more proportional division of the claimed Electoral Votes. Any third party candidate wins (if applicable) are represented in ORANGE. See NOTES below for additional information.
