Joe Biden’s victory in Georgia, a turning point in the US presidential elections 2020, was made possible by Asian American voters.

According to the media reports, Georgia’s hand recount and vote certification confirmed that Asian American voters who make up the fastest-growing demographic in Georgia helped swing the state for the Democrats for the first time since 1992.

Despite the voters comprise only about 4 percent of Georgia’s population that amounts to roughly 238,000 eligible voters, more than enough to determine races in the narrowly divided state. Georgia saw a 91 percent increase in Asian American voter turnout over 2016.

Joseph Robinette Biden Jr is an American politician and the president-elect of the United States. He defeated incumbent president Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election and will be inaugurated as the 46th president on January 20, 2021. A member of the Democratic Party, Biden served as the 47th vice president during the Obama administration from 2009 to 2017. He represented Delaware in the United States Senate from 1973 to 2009.

US broadcasters CNN, NBC News, and CBS News also reported that Biden had won the election after winning the decisive state of Pennsylvania.

As polling closed, Americans’ eyes were fixed on TV screens and mobile phones, and the announcement of a new US president was awaited around the world. Biden’s victory in key states of Wisconsin and Michigan reduced the chances of incumbent President Donald Trump winning.
