The popular vote handily with more than 77 million Americans voting for him as president along with electoral votes. However, President Donald Trump is pushing back alleging fraud and refusing to concede.

Dr. Suzanne Chod, associate professor of political science at North Central College, interviewed on WGN’s “People to People” show, where she discussed the developments of the 2020 General Election.

“So typically, what happens is the race is called once a candidate has gone over that 270 electoral vote count,” said Dr. Chod. “But, because of the mail in ballots, many states are taking much longer to get all of those votes counted. Every vote should be counted, that’s what happens in a democracy.”
