What Joe Biden won - and what he didn't

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.

  • man we in india do much better elections than you guys

  • Don't know who will get the office, but for sure, the trust of people in the media is completely destroyed, at least for the half of the country. Cut off the president/his people speech/interview, censor the opposite voices, directly humiliate/intimidate them on the public media just because they disagree with you etc, etc ... When they are in the unfavorable position, you do whatever it takes to completely destroy them as the individuals. I was a left leaning but not for now.

  • RIP America. You will be missed.

  • Biden/Harris Fraud!

  • Next four years Vox will be busy defending Biden's every move.

  • Russia and North Korea : you guys have elections

  • Enjoy your higher taxes and eventually bankrupting the country 👍

  • All these videos will be deleted in December anything related to Biden victory will be erased

  • Joe is a go.

  • Unfortunately the data science and statistical analysis proves that the dems cheated and there was voter fraud. You can fool the general public, but your are not fooling the data science community. Unfortunately, many people just don't the have mathematical knowledge to see through. I've can see the statistical impossibility of Joe Biden's winning numbers.

  • Trump’s Republican Party is a failure, the Republican Party should be a strong Conservative party, not a weak babbling far right party

  • no ono noonononon. Don't use UK Conservatives as an example here. We're talking about real popular majority. UK Conservative candidates and all candidates in UK election run against 3-6 others in a FPTP system. That's no majority. UK MPs win on percentages of 30% usually. FPTP only works when there's two candidates.

  • Hey Bidi boy if you're not taking my guns then I am OK

  • 2:57 there's your answer

  • Meet the new boss, same as the old boss. You would be a fool to believe otherwise !!

  • Just to show how easy it is to start a brain-cell lowering political fight, *spoon*

  • Turn against democracy... the same people who cheer on censorship, antifa, beating up political opponents... you are complete clowns

  • The illegal chinese occupant Joe Beijing

  • You yeah you With your dry lips and no socks on I caught Now stop touching those lips of yours

    • OMG I WAS ACTUALLY DOING THAT

  • Biden should endorse the Creation of a progressive third party. In that case the democrats, republicans and progressives need to work toghether to get things done. This works in a lot of European democracies. It counters gridlock and force cooperation so the will of most Americans is best represented in policy.

    • He won a lame duck 🦆 session.

  • Biden won nothing. Donald Trump lost.

    • I love these videos. They are so freaking interesting!?

  • You ain't black if you vote for JoJo. More than likely, him & Kamala put some of your relatives in prison.

    • vadermask//mass retaliation I know that Joe is a really weak candidate and I acknowledge his racist past. I'm just more Anti-Trump than pro-Biden

  • Trump trump trump

  • Ya'll are still quoting POLLS????? Really????? Polls Don't Work ANYMORE!!!! Stop It!!!

  • Another commercial video for Biden that looks like an election analysis lol

  • Next four years Vox will be busy defending Biden's every move.

    • @Mustafiz Ray exactly like FOX news. VOX, Trevor Noah, and all others who were mocking Fox news will do the exact same thing now. And their premises of every news will be like Trump administration did that and because of that Biden has to take this decision, otherwise, he is good.

    • OH.. SO BASICALLY LIKE FOX NEWS??

    • There won’t be nearly as much to defend. Biden will be an extremely boring and forgettable president most likely, but that doesn’t change the fact that he isn’t sinking the whole ship.

    • @Womp Womp And you Womp can crawl back under the wet door mat you came from.

    • Yep, True

  • If he wins Georgia he might get 50-50 senators and with a vice-president tie breaker he might win.

  • Anyone who votes for Democrat is not following god. Our bible tells us when sin is glorified it is the end. Democrats want to abort babies at 9 months. Partial live births they call it. That is murder. Democrats glorify homosexuality. Who cares what people do with their life, but you dont glorify it! That's wrong.

    • im not christian

    • stop pushing your political satanist agenda as the true "christian" party

    • No one said to abort babies at nine months 90% of the time its before 3. Im not saying believing in god is wrong but if it obscures the view of how atrocious Trump is then I disagree with it.

  • Anyone who votes for Democrat is not following god. Our bible tells us when sin is glorified it is the end. Democrats want to abort babies at 9 months. Partial live births they call it. That is murder. Democrats glorify homosexuality. Who cares what people do with their life, but you dont glorify it! That's wrong.

    • The revolution will not be televised!!!!

  • 3:48 you do know that our current prime minister (australia) worshiped a lump of coal in parliament

  • im just confused of whats going on-

  • I always get excited when I see a video from you when I'm scrolling ???

  • Counting wotes still on the way and noubody say hu is prezident elect soo go home stuid people is not ower ! Faike news not chosing prezident !

    • Learn how to spell the come back.

  • Stealing and fooling people by media

    • @Sammy Muhafiz • 9 years ago there is brainwashing and they did on youtube faceboook twitter insta not comments but channels ..are you blind or sth

    • If they are stealing and fooling people by media wouldn't they just delete your comment?

    • Lol he lost fair and square

  • most people voted biden because.................. they just want trump out....period.

    • @hen ko Someones a conspiracy Theorist ooooooooh.

    • CNN IS A BIG WORLD CORP GROUP. THEY ARE NOT LOOKING OUT FOR YOU MILLENIALS. NO! THEY WANT TO BE DOMINANT AND IN CONTROL OF OUR GOVERMENT.

  • He won a lame duck 🦆 session.

  • i am a pretty big republican but trump is terrible and biden has real sense

  • Most impressive thing Biden did was stay in his basement and out spent his opponent by almost 4 times, and went to 4 times less states than his opponent did and still managed to "win" the election.

    • @Jackson Freking Yup

    • He won fair and square get over it

  • How is it obvious that DC be offered statehood? DC was apart of Maryland state, and was taken away for reasons. If those reasons are no longer relevant, why would it become it's own state and not apart of Maryland again?

  • what will the title of your first video be when it turns out Trump was re-elected?

    • @Minsuk Seo In what world???? No proof of voter fraud has been revealed

    • @Jackson Freking It will happen soon

    • Thats not happening so it dosent matter.

  • bruh if my parents were able to vote i would NOT be there for 4 hours im going back home

  • where you went wrong was listening to fox news

  • The revolution will not be televised!!!!

  • the orange is out!

  • It's worth pointing out that the Conservatives in the UK won the last three elections without winning a majority of the popular vote either.

  • There is going to be more shoplifting 👜 and panhandling 🤢🤮then ever before

    • Ok then 👍

  • Why are you not covering all the evidence of voter failure? Also, Biden has not won. The election process is still ongoing. Why are you lying? Or are you just ignorant of the voting process?

    • @Jackson Freking It depends whether it was intentional. Certainly voter failure. They did a recount of one county. Trump got over 800 extra votes. From one county. Normally, you see about 100, either way, in a recount. That’s mental. The guy who moved across country, then someone voted in his name in an old state? Or what about the postal workers claiming they were told to date undated votes? What is that all about?

    • There is no evidence of voter fraud lol

  • i love u joe biden

  • Biden never won he cheated. Trump won get over it

    • @DustyOrchid057 if you google election fraud 2020 America almost all of the articles that come up are completely debunking claims of voter fraud so I really don't know what you mean by that

    • @DustyOrchid057 It’s not google lol. It’s ISchats videos made by 45 year olds that still live with their parents in the basement and are conspiracy theorists. You can’t trust all the internet, even google....

    • @Simon Trumpists am I right lol

    • @DustyOrchid057 You're the one making an outrageous claim without backing it up. It's your job to provide evidence, not mine. This is why trump's lawyers are getting laughed out of court and nothing will change.

    • @Simon evidence? It’s called google. Start looking for it instead of believing in the lies that the secular media tells

  • CNN IS A BIG WORLD CORP GROUP. THEY ARE NOT LOOKING OUT FOR YOU MILLENIALS. NO! THEY WANT TO BE DOMINANT AND IN CONTROL OF OUR GOVERMENT. THEY WANT TO CALL ALL THE SHOTS WITH FACEBOOK AND OTHER GIANTS. YOU MILLENIALS WILL BE NAVEL LINT TO THEM. MAKING A PITTANCE OF A LIVING. YOU WILL BE A ZERO YOUR WHOLE LIFE AND LUCKY TO EVEN OWN A CAR. LOOK AT NORTH KOREA. LOOK AT CUBA. LOOK AT VENEZUALA.

    • @Bakshi Vindaloo lol

    • you've been reading too much fearmongering facebook news

  • Hey!! Great vid!!

  • The Australian Liberal-National coalition does not support healthcare

  • So this video is under the assumption that a pure "democracy" is preferable. If you are going to sea on a boat would you want the passengers to make the decisions or the crew members that have trained in driving the boat make the decisions. Democracy in our current form does not work. We need to make sure that educated people are the only ones voting.

    • Only net tax paying people are voting.

  • 'Scorecard' the CIA electronic voting machine software program was used in the swing states to decide the issue by transferring automatically Trump votes for Biden votes .. very simple

    • This vid so cool !?

  • I would never consider Biden my President in a million years, but I don’t want Trump and his criminal family to win another term. I feel like that’s something a lot of media companies rarely cover. Like what AOC said, it’s about the sake of democracy, not because people care about Biden or his message, but I never see people acknowledge that. Glad it’s something that’s been mentioned here.

    • So Trump is a criminal, and Biden isn't?? What about his sons laptop? Biden"s more a criminal then Trump.

  • 2:50 If the election is keep lose popular votes, and people always favor democratic Party, Then what it does is that people put all their power in one Party, which will Force house of representative shift to democratic Party Or house of representative get replaced under people 's will. So you will always have democratic Party always win Because your empirical data shows that people always vote for democratic Party. Now you have a party that always gain it's power while another party always don't gain that power, and now this is going to broke the United States's checks and balances Because you got people, house of representative, President on one side while another side only have half of the senates, Because rest of half of the senates are democratic Party Or minorities. Now you have one Party state Because all the power is on democratic Party always. It's people's will, but it's also create imbalance of power. Now, democratic is left wing, which mean it's has same side as Communism and socialism. How do you make sure individualism plays out the role if you are not going to like socialism at all? That is, trampling minorities right, Because republican Party is now minority group. You have to like individualism and capitalism to make things balanced, and you don't like balance. You like to get everything.

  • Hi, you're wrong. This election was a scam, every vote will be counted.

  • I’m just here to see all the racist Biden supporters cry

  • in canada we have conservitives that know you cant threaten heath care, abortion and voting laws thats why they still have power!

  • 1:19 Lol, look at you. Another lefty pretending that republican are anti-democratic.

    • M.ake A.lexadria B.artend A.gain

  • Joe Biden didn't even campaign and got more votes than Obama? Trump did 3-5 a day with 20-40 thousand people at everyone of them. Trump was up by thousands of votes and some how at 4 in the morning 100 thousands of votes came in for Biden. Come on even Democrats know Biden had no chance and the Democrats rigged this election.

    • His supporters were "peacefully" rioting.

  • One thing about the UK conservative party was that between 1997 and 2010, it was stubborn to change and suffered in elections for it. It was only when DAVID Cameron came along and reformed the party making it more moderate. Only then did they gain electoral victories.

  • Yeah can confirm my dead relatives and my entire dead neighbourhood voted for biden

  • What Joe Biden didn't win: THIS STOLEN ELECTION!!!

    • The only voter fraud was in the 2016 election

    • Biden won no evidence of fraud more republicans voted for Biden get over it move on

  • hahahaha Biden's going to the parkinson clinic,the crown seat is waiting,

  • RIP United States, your respect before will be remembered 😂

  • This is lie

  • I love how Vox interviews their own staff as a source.

    • they arent being interviewed they are stating facts and other peoples opinions. thats what journalism is.

    • @soinhu foitu Nah, Biden will give visas which is all Indians care about

    • India loves trump ❤️ have a happy life trump

  • Biden has not won yet, the media does not call the election

    • We have 4 MORE YEARS don't be fooled

  • As a Malaysian Muslim believe me Trump will comeback in 2024. 71 million americans vote for him. He still jold chance

    • Nah I don't think that the American population wants him as president ever again

    • F

    • Lol.

  • Obviously The Yellow Check Mark = Traffic Stop Light? Asking us To Wait a little bit. But how long can it take before it actually turns green, Im falling asleep behind the screen.

  • I just remembered a pulchritudinous idea that there is still hope for America ( after election results).

  • My name is Joe Biden and I forgot my message. Will someone please get this man a working teleprompter.

  • Biden is not my president neither is trump I'm middle eastern that's why I care

    • @022 Kodrat Surya Pratama I'm not sure what you mean but there's only one Abrahamic religion which is the Abrahamic religion, another name for it is "Islam"

    • And what would be diferent? for better or worst?

    • @Osama أسامة nice name, a man with the name like yours hijacked 4 planes, crashed into the twin towers and killed about 8,000 innocent people. How about you shut up

    • I’m your president

    • @022 Kodrat Surya Pratama abrahamic???

  • Any sources of those statistics? They seem slightly slanted.

  • DC should not be offered statehood, it would mess up federal government by introducing state government. Puerto Rico, on the other hand, should've been a state yesterday

    • yeah dude why isnt puerto rico a state yet it fills all the bills

  • The runoffs are not though because that’s 50-50 and that means no votes can be lost and there are some real republican Democrats meaning people like joe mansion he routinely votes with the republicans so no

    • @Djrubixcube05 Jordan i agree. I am hoping they can pass at least some legislation to help people out for COVID at the minimum

    • @louis gomez but that’s not enough they have shown they will let everything go and betting on republicans is just asking to be angry when they inevitably don’t vote your way the Democrats lost seats in the house and senate and there is no excuse it’s the problem and if they don’t want to deal with it they will just get primaryed out by progressives

    • Well if it's 50-50, Kamala harris can be the deciding vote. But also, if someone like Joe Manchin votes against, you would hope some of the reasonable republicans like Susan collins, Mitt Romney could potentially support some of these policies

  • Trump won, Dems cheat using ballot fraud and corrupt voter software (Hammer, scorecard, and Dominion software switches votes from Trump to Biden). The electoral college hasnt made their pick yet, votes still being counted, fraud being investigated. China Joe is not President elect !​​@

  • Biden cheated

    • Proof? You are a little kid you are just saying the things ur parents told u.

  • We have 4 MORE YEARS don't be fooled

  • India loves trump ❤️ have a happy life trump

  • We should have DC and PR as states? Should we? Two areas that are predominantly Democratic 🤔. Sounds like it would be easier to get electoral votes from those states then right?

  • Ermmm he didn't win though? VOX is a lying media company.

    • biden won, every news source says biden won, even fox news.

    • Trump lost if that's what your saying

  • Biden Lost. He Cheated. That Is normal for a socialist

    • yeah and what proof do you have?

  • Anyone drinking coffee? What type?!

  • Biden is for Democracy? Alexandria Casio- Cortez is a liar and a bully...I can't stand her attitude....

  • The CNN/NY Times post election narrative was that Biden had won because of the white suburb vote and that curtailing that somewhat was that Latinos and Blacks had slightly shifted to Trump. This was a very false narrative based on a confusion between % and aggregate and by failure to acknowledge the changing demographics of suburbs. Biden won in the way Sanders had said he would have to - by dominating aggregate new voter turnout, particularly in the battleground primarily driven my minority voters in the suburbs. The sad truth was that overwhelming number of whites (particularly seniors) who voted for Trump in 2016 voted for him again. This idea that somehow there would be a seismic shift among Trump supporters disillusioned with his presidency did not happen. I'm sad it didn't but we have to face reality. Remember when the red baiting occurred in the primaries, the scare scenario that if Sander were to be the nominee, Florida was lost, heck even Texas was in play under Biden and also Ohio and Iowa - sure to shift blue? What tells the story is this - voter turnout increased probably about by 5% points in this election - a huge amount - and the majority of that aggregate that went to Biden was non-white voters. The future for the Democrat party lies in new voter registration - end of story
