Why did the Democrats lose so heavily in the House? What will happen between now and Inauguration Day? If Biden wins, what will he be able to accomplish? What motivated Trump’s voters? Will all the votes be counted? Who has the clearest path to victory? And what to make of the acute divides across American society? What lessons can Canadians draw from this election?
