NEW YORK (Reuters) - Almost 80% of Americans and over half of the Republicans acknowledge President-elect Joe Biden as the winner of the November 3 ballot, following a Reuters/Ipsos survey, where several media organizations called for Democratic representatives.

While by late Tueursday afternoon Biden – who wanted 270 Electoral College votes to benefit - still had an unresolved race with the incumbent Republican Donald Trump in three states, according to Edison Polling, had 279 of these votes and 214 for Tromb.

In the famous ballot, Biden obtained 76,3 million, or 50,7% of the number, for Trump to 71,6 million, or 47,6%.

In a Saturday afternoon-Tuesday survey conducted by Reuters/Ipsos, 79% of adults in America claimed that Biden deserved the White House.

Another 13% claimed that the election wasn't determined, 3% said that Trump prevailed and 5% that they didn't realize.

The findings were divided in party lines: only six out of ten Republicans, and nearly all Democrats claimed Biden won. Biden won.

On Saturday after extending his leadership in Pennsylvania over Trump, Edison Analysis, which performs exit polls for Reuters and major media outlets, named the races for Biden and showed a strong path to boost 270 elections.

Trump's ethnicity results also have to be remembered.

Even before elections had been held, he wrongly announced the win and protested frequently without any proof of a systemic electoral fraud.

Members of Trump's cabinet reiterated his statements.

U.S. Solicitor General William Barr has ordered a "substantial" inquiry into reports of fraud in elections, and on Tuesday, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that he anticipates "a smooth transition to a second Trump administration."

In an ongoing survey carried out Friday-Tuesday, the Reuters/Ipsos poll contained answers to the presidential campaign.

It found that 70% of Americans, 83% of them democrats and 59% of republicans believe in "do their job honestly." for their local elections authorities.

The survey also showed that 72% expect the democratic loser would confer a setback, and 60% believe that as Trump's term expires in January, there will be a seamless transfer of control.

The survey was kept online, in English and in the United States by Reuters/Ipsos.

It received answers from a total of 1363 U.S. adults, 469 of whom were polling from Saturday afternoon to Tuesday.
