How will the 2020 Election Results Affect Tax Policy and the Economy?

The Democratic Party took control of Congress and the White House for the first time in a decade as Electoral College votes were officially counted while two runoff elections for Georgia’s Senate seats were also completed.

The Electoral College confirmed Joe Biden as the President elect by ratifying his victory in the November election with 306 electoral votes to Donald Trump’s 232.

In Georgia, Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock each won runoff elections for Senate seats, creating a 50-50 split between Democrats and Republicans. Vice President-elect Kamala Harris will break tied votes, giving Democrats the advantage.

The Democratic Party had already won control in the House of Representatives with 222 seats compared to 211 for the Republicans.
