With no clear winner yet in the 2020 presidential election, Democratic candidate Joe Biden has already made history, becoming the presidential candidate to receive most votes in a US election- with many ballots to be counted.

The former vice president had amassed 69,759,833 votes so far, breaking the record Barak Obama captured in 2008 when he secured 69,498,516 votes in his presidential race against Republican Senator John McCain.

Trump’s total so far – 67,160,663 – is also more than he polled in 2016, and more than Obama polled in 2012. This places Trump third on the all-time list.
