Joe Biden has won the 2020 election and will become the oldest individual in history to be sworn in as president, the Washington Free Beacon decision desk has determined.
We are confident enough to call the race at this early stage in the process because the foremost political authority in the country has finally weighed in.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) rendered his expert judgment from the Senate floor on Tuesday by congratulating "President-elect Joe Biden" and declaring with authority that "the Electoral College has spoken."

There you have it. The apex predator of American politics has spoken.
The outcome is actually a positive one for President Donald J. Trump, who will be remembered as the most successful one-term president in American history.
