2020: CNN projects Biden will win
November 7, 2020: CNN projects that Joe Biden has won the 2020 presidential election and will become the 46th president of the United States, Wolf Blitzer announces.
For four tense days after the November 3 Election Day, the nation -- and the world -- watched as vote counts continued. A victory in Pennsylvania on Saturday finally put Biden over the 270 electoral votes needed, CNN projected, thus winning the White House and denying President Trump a second term. The win is a full circle moment that came more than 30 years after Biden's first presidential campaign.
