NEMWI Analysis of 2020 Election and the Great Lakes Region

The Great Lakes proved to be one of the most pivotal regions in deciding the 2020 Presidential election, in which former Vice President Joe Biden defeated the incumbent, President Donald Trump. President-elect Biden was able to flip key states in the region, including Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, from red to blue, helping him accumulate more than the 270 electoral votes need to win the Presidential election. 

Additionally, the Great Lake region will see many new faces within its Congressional delegation, with at least 12 new Members being elected to serve in the 117th Congress, and with eight other races still to be called. NEMWI has compiled an overview of election results throughout the region that can be viewed here.
