What Joe Biden won - and what he didn't

Birt 7 nóv 2020
Biden beat Trump. Now what? Ezra Klein explains.
Watch more of our election coverage: vox.com/ElectionVideos
The 2020 US election is over, and former vice president Joe Biden will be the 46th US president. He’s the first to defeat an incumbent president in 28 years, and he did it in part by unifying the Democratic Party against Donald Trump, bringing members of the party’s left wing into his campaign after beating Bernie Sanders in the primary, and crafting an aggressive policy platform.
But Biden’s agenda will most likely be met by a Republican-controlled Senate, whose leader, Mitch McConnell, presided over the complete stonewalling of the last Democratic president’s agenda, and likely intends to do so again. This despite the fact that many of Biden’s policies enjoy the support of most Americans, and McConnell’s Senate caucus represents a minority of them.
In other words, Biden’s decisive victory margin of several million votes was basically good enough for a stalemate. In this video, Vox editor-at-large Ezra Klein explains what makes that possible -- a Republican Party dedicated to making sure a minority controls the country -- and how Joe Biden’s first priority should be unwinding that system back to democracy.

  • Thankfully, this video didn't age well

  • Vox is a left leaning media outlet

    • Wow. What a brand new revaluation you have made. Your the next Sherlock Holmes.

  • We won the right to have high taxes the right for fossil fuel to taken away to have our "freedom machines"removed. We have the right to have the federal government seize our state by state voting regulations we have the right to border crisis the right to like illegal immigration.

  • Dem got it all an will make sure we keep it

  • 3:37 I'd pop a bottle for that🍾🥂

  • Lol some ppl acting like they didn't know this channel is left leaning

  • never waited longer then 15 minuts to vote in the netherlands. wp america, waiting hours in line to vote.

  • Who hear noticed that the only news clip's are from left leaning news station's?

    • @Axel Gust that would be right leaning stations

    • ... because they were saying Biden didn't win..?

  • Yeah im moving out of usa

  • 5:31 grubhub

  • I'm surprised I didn't hear "I'm Joe Biden I support this message" at the end of this video

  • What sleepy JOE won was the president of the United states... If you are reasonably intelligent and want to see AMERICA succeed... REMOVE THE REPUBLICANS FROM THE SENATE!!!!!!

  • How to be president: Be a very good liar

    • @Kid does history and stuff What has Trump lied about?

    • It worked for trump and I’m not denying that Biden hasn’t probably lied before but it’s a lot less than trump

  • 1:18 that defeats the entire purpose of having a democratic element in the election process

  • Who is watching this after Biden played everyone 😂😂😂😂

  • This vox presenter has blown more goats than the population of Wales! Stick to what you know sir

  • In Canada, we vote a party in, and then when we get sick of them, we vote them out

    • you mean that *ghasp* there are countries that vote normally and not like the us?????

  • There are just.forgin quotes and people in Biden Campaign no American voices

  • What he didn't win ? The election without fraud

    • @Espakuz • You can’t prove any of that is the funny thing

    • @Kermit oh yeah except you know people voting with no address ,states changing voting laws and accepting every ballot without identity and dead people voting. The media claims there was fraud not directly but they say “there is no evidence for mass voter fraud” implying that there was fraud in some degree. In Arizona there is suspected 200k illegal votes, Joe Biden won by 10k in that state. Obviously this can go both ways, the fact of the matter is that fraud happen.

    • @Espakuz • Cause y’all didn’t bring any evidence in the first place

    • @Kermit you know why? Because the left and the courts refused to not show the evidence. All they said is “its false” without any counter evidence.

    • you are cap

  • The messy shingle coincidently rob because kamikaze independently book down a bizarre author. vigorous, merciful beer

  • He won everything.

  • Who is here after the election was rigged and biden was installed?

    • @Outlaw Wilderness do you not have any dignity? Or any ability to peacefully debate? In guessing not as your first instinct is to attack. Typical of a trump supporter

    • @Kermit sure there isnt. The sky is also purple and you tested for an iq above 3. 🤣

    • There is no evidence of any fraud in this election 🗳

    • Cope

    • @Outlaw Wilderness rigged? It's 2020 comrade,we have things called photo evidence and there isnt a single evidence that proves that it is rigged even if there is,it's the worst form of evidence: eye witnesses.Eye witnesses is easily one of the unreliable form of evidence

  • The most popular president EVER! Joe received more votes than even Obama, far more. Truly incredible, to the fullest extent of the word.

  • And unfortunately AOC has become a Joe Biden defender. America needs a left wing.

  • 5:31 Is that the Grub Hub ad I hear?

  • i watched the debate on Comedy Central.

  • When i make breakfast i watch American politics as entertainment

  • I can feel the left wing

  • So, what they're saying in this video, is that Biden being elected as President is good, because it protects our democracy, which the Republicans threatened because they didn't need popular support among the most-highly populated states to get their way? Am I the only one who finds this kind of strange?

    • @Joshua Davis but I do wanna hear your argument

    • @Joshua Davis I don't even vote

    • @Northstar _, okay, before I tear your argument to pieces (even if calling your comment an "argument" is generous) let me ask you this: Do you affiliate more with the Republican Party or the Democratic Party? Be honest.

    • The way that voting works is outdated we don't need the electoral college anymore that's the only reason Trump won 4 years ago but even then both Clinton and Biden had more votes than Trump

    • Don't you find banning people from giving water to voters strange? The big question.

  • I like joe no matter what anybody says

  • The Answer Is Too Deep Even Me I can't Get it

  • does anybody not notice that joe biden is the oldest president right now

  • 3:52 So what the Republican Party on the overall should do is be more like Canada’s Conservative party. Still pro gun and anti political correctness but promote and embrace renewable energy and universal health care.

  • PR should not be given statehood

    • @HistoryTyler some of those millions dont even care about voting

    • @jesse O_O no he meant 3 million who don't get to vote in their country

    • @me not 3 milllion cause only a few 300thousand support statehood so pls sit down

    • 3 million people who have no say in who rules the country?

    • y tho?

  • So far he's not fulfilling his promises to unite the nation.

    • More ignorant people that think Trump only cut taxes for the rich. He cut taxes for EVERYONE.

    • @Kameron Cohen be a racist, if you count that As good

    • @legenden kjær YT with promises to deliver in those months

    • @Ninety Nine Ballons True that

    • @Kameron Cohen gave tax cuts to the rich and destroyed healthcare in 2017 (trump)

  • Angry conservatives incoming 🤣

  • F biden

  • The quiet afghanistan perioperaively fry because transport experimentally slow in a tacit license. drab, utopian anteater

  • I'm a 16-year-old Asian and the act of voting seems so terrifying in a way that I don't know how to actually put my vote through. And now that my family is having plans to actually migrate to America is more terrifying now

    • @Misterious Gamr mate come here to Australia.

    • @Eugene Lubbock I think of it as a big responsibility and a very serious matter. I can't vote on a whim either

    • why is it terrifying? just want to know.

  • Biden won "Joke of the Day!" Nothing ekse! Certainly not the Presidency!!!

    • There is no evidence of any fraud in this election

    • @Doran Vee cope

    • @Ninety Nine Ballons Funny how everyone knows Trump won, but the democrats dont want honest or fair elections.

    • Cope

  • Where is legal weed

  • This is why I hate living in illinois

  • Here with a democratic president with a democratic majority in congress

  • Nothing will change , US is still in doom.

  • "MiTcH McCoNnElL sEnAtE"

  • Biden is not my president.

    • @ola עומר That wasn't funny.

    • @Inkan1969 good people? The kinds that like to victimize POC by telling them they have no chance of making it in this Country?

    • @ola עומר I knew it!! Haha

    • @ola עומר I bet the joke wasn’t even that funny

    • @Kameron Cohen another one that didnt read the thread/understood the joke, and counting

  • he won.

  • So, now we have a Democratic senate, since Warnock and Ossoff won in Georgia, and Harris acts as the tiebreaker vote. But with that being said, it'll still be tough to get things done and through.

  • Irrelevant to the topic, Varshini is such a pretty name

  • He’s a realistic president. thanks American.

    • Incompetent is the word you’re looking for

  • Well this video aged like milk...

  • j3vvs propagnda

  • Joe lost his brain see what happens when you cheat joe

  • Capitalist nation can't be democratic

  • He chedted

  • 5:31 does anyone else here the Grubhub music

  • 5:30 GRUB HUB

  • How this started it will not end well

  • Joe Biden is a joke calling him President Biden is a bad joke

    • @Tristan is for B calling you an intelligent human is laughable

    • @Tristan is for B Id rather not.

    • @MeLmao Calling you a American is laughable

    • And calling you a human being is laughable

  • as usual, favouritism to the democrats *well done democracy, well done*

    • Of course we'll favour the Democrats when the Republicans that currently hold power have turned into an extremist cult of bickering toddlers.

  • ...and let's just skim over the part about changing election rules, without a Constitutional amendment that favoured Democrat voters. So yeah, sure, Biden "won". And don't forget that Biden is America's most popular President ever, because he "fortified" more votes than Trump or Obama, despite not campaigning, showing obvious signs of dementia, requires Harris to speak to world leaders, does this all behind a "racist" border wall around DC and reneged on pretty much all his campaign promises. So yeah, I guess America got the President it deserves.

  • The liar in chief, he lied his way into office.

    • You're a couple years late on that

  • You can’t give D.C statehood even if they wanted it. The government have to be stateless so they are neutral. Its why DC have different laws than other states

    • What about reducing its size

  • Biden ambitions to unify the USA and president for life

  • Why does Biden have different ear lobes in different photos?

  • Are you guys surprised it turned out to be a trifecta ?

  • I don’t know how people believe joe Biden won.

    • I don't know how people believe in fraud that can't be proven in a court room and even republican governors and attorney generals have verified the election.

  • What Joe Biden One was...number two...number three!

  • Biden did not win the actual presidency. True fact

    • Yummy trump supporter tears

  • CNN is a fraud. Trump won and Biden lost.

    • They fraud the US voting system, and this will go down the history. If nobody is stopping this, the president that we have in the future will not be the president that people want.

    • @Alex Strauss is it? I guess you like to see the gas price and tax cut go up in US. I don’t think you are a US citizen at all.

    • @Ed Reed well i mean its kinda already ended

    • @Alex Strauss lol.... let’s see who is right at end

    • yeah man makes a lot of sense that trump the guy who tried to blackmail georgias secretary of state and tried to suppress many peoples votes and his associates who also tried the same thing and it totally makes sense that trump a man (if you can even call him that) who never won the popular vote won the popular after a totally great presidency where nothing bad happened and could possibly have happened because trump had such a great presidency and there is no reason to why it would be bad and trump is totally the best president that ever lived because there is no reason to why he would be a bad president at all and he totally did not incite the capital insurrection because he specifically told them not to march on the capitol after he said "we are gonna march up to that capital and some people who are not supposed to be there will be there" and his associates made it even clearer when they said we will have "trial by combat".

  • "and a mitch mcconnell congress" ;)

  • Vox and Burdens regime are frauds.

  • This videos shows the severity of the events that have happened in the last 3 months are historic and truly terrifying. If you are reading this from the future. I hope we didn’t give up on democracy.
