Former Vice President Joe Biden (D) won the presidential election in Pennsylvania on November 3, 2020.
The Democratic and Republican parties held primary elections in Pennsylvania on June 2, 2020. The primary, originally scheduled for April 28, 2020, was postponed in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Former Vice President Joe Biden won the Democratic primary, and President Donald Trump won the Republican primary.
Alongside Illinois, Pennsylvania was one of two states with 20 electoral votes, making it tied for fifth-most. Between 1900 and 2016, Pennsylvania was carried by the Republican presidential candidate in 53.33% of elections and by the Democratic candidate in 43.33%.
In the 2016 election, Donald Trump (R) carried Pennsylvania with 48.2% of the vote to Hillary Clinton‘s (D) 47.5%.
In the 2020 presidential election, “The fact is, precious few states are likely to matter, and Pennsylvania has emerged as one of the top-tier states…We’re going to be, in effect, ground zero,” according to Franklin & Marshall College political science professor G. Terry Madonna.
