It's Official: Joe Biden is the 46th US President

The Electoral College vote makes it official – Joe Biden (left) is the 46th president of the United States, 306 electoral college votes went to him as opposed to Donald Trump's 232.

In case you didn’t know, the president of the United States is not chosen directly by voters, but by what's known as the electoral college.

All 538 electors met in their respective states on Monday to cast their votes for president based on the election results that had already been certified by all 50 states and Washington DC. California's 55 electoral votes pushed Biden over the 270 threshold needed to win. 

The donkey has prevailed over the elephant.
