Roommate, more than a week after the 2020 elections, the state of Alaska finally finished the vote count – and Donald Trump emerged victorious. Just like in 2016, Trump secured the three electoral votes necessary to declare him the winner in Alaska when he led President-elect Joe Biden in official polls.
As one of the last states to complete their first vote count, it was confirmed that Donald Trump won the state of Alaska along with his three electoral votes. His victory in the state comes days after Joe Biden received more than enough of the 270 electoral votes required to be elected president and win the general race at the White House.
Alaska typically supports Republican presidential candidates, but Trump’s lead in local polls was less than expected, with the Republican candidate being less than 10 points ahead in some recent polls.
In addition, it should be noted that Trump’s victory in Alaska means essentially nothing to his vote count or his pursuit of a second term in the White House, as Joe Biden has already been named president-elect with a current electoral vote of 290 while Trump sits at 217 .
Two states remain to be called – North Carolina, where Trump leads by more than 70,000 votes, and Georgia, where Biden leads with about 14,000 votes. Georgian Foreign Secretary Brad Raffensperger, an ally of Republicans Trump, has announced a hand count that will be more expensive and likely less reliable than a machine count.
