Joe Biden has won Maryland

Joe Biden won Maryland in the 2020 presidential race, according to Decision Desk HQ.

Maryland has voted Democratic in nine of the last 12 presidential elections, reliably serving as a mainstay of the Democratic nominee’s electoral-vote count.

The state is not home to any competitive down-ballot races in the House or the Senate or for governor.

Control over Maryland’s state government is split: The governor is a Republican, while the Democrats hold both chambers of the state’s Legislature.

In Congress, Maryland’s delegation is majority Democratic, with nine of 10 congressional seats.

The state has 10 electoral votes, and analysts did not expect it to be competitive.
