2020 U.S. Election Implications

After historic delays required to tabulate millions of ballots that were not sufficiently counted until four days after the election, former Vice President Joe Biden was declared the winner in the U.S. Presidential election on Nov. 7 and will serve as the 46th President of the United States.  In a victory speech Biden said “it’s time to put away the harsh rhetoric, lower the temperature, see each other again, listen to each other again.”  He said his mandate involved fighting “the battle to control the virus, the battle to build prosperity … the battle to restore decency, defend democracy, and give everybody in this country a fair shot.  That’s all they’re asking for, a fair shot.  Folks, our work begins with getting COVID under control.”
