Why Unibet called Biden a winner?

Unibet has an issue and will have a big hassle once the president is finally really elected. Unibet can of course sue their source of information!

 

"You might think that the person who receives the most votes wins, right?

 

Wrong.

 

Just ask Al Gore, who in 2000 won more than half-a-million votes more than the “winner”, George W. Bush.

 

In fact, on four occasions in American history (1824, 1876, 1888, and 2000), the winner of the presidential election actually received fewer votes than their opponent.

 

This is because, contrary to popular belief, voters do not actually elect the president.

 

Voters are merely indicating a preference for president, but the task of actually electing the president falls to 538 individual electors to the US Electoral College."

 

"To win the presidency, a candidate needs an absolute majority vote in the Electoral College, which is half plus one, or 270. This is why you will hear a lot about the magic number “270” on Election Day.

 

If no one wins an absolute majority of the Electoral College, then the election is decided by a vote in the US House of Representatives, which has occurred on just one occasion (1824)."
