With literally millions of votes still to be counted, Joe Biden’s popular vote total stands at 73 million. That’s already more than 7 million more votes than Hillary Clinton received in 2016 and by far the most for a presidential candidate of either party. There is no doubt that this election saw a massive, historic wave of voter turnout for Democrats.
The problem for them is it was a giant (albeit slightly smaller) wave election for President Trump, too. This election will also see the largest total turnout in American history.
Many Democrats are disappointed that the party lost some House seats and didn’t make the big gains in the Senate they had hoped for, causing them to re-examine their strategies.
