Such conclusions are what annoy the left wing of the US Democrats. “Cindy McCain gave Joe Biden victory in Arizona,” it said after the state had voted democratically for the first time in 24 years. The widow of the moderate and still highly respected Republican Senator John McCain had spoken out in favor of her husband's longtime boyfriend shortly before the election. This Biden “endorsement” was feared by Republicans in the desert state because it was expected that it could make the difference with conservative women who are critical of Trump.

For this step, the 66-year-old, who spoke at the Democratic nomination conference and advises Biden's transition team, could now be rewarded with the post of ambassador in Great Britain. At least that's what the London Times reports. "She can have the job if she wants it," the newspaper quoted an unnamed source as saying. Because: "They delivered Arizona." Biden's people knew that.

Biden also wants to involve Republicans

Biden himself has made it clear that he is considering Republicans for important government jobs, also in order to keep his promise to want to reunite the deeply divided country.

But he is also threatened with a split in his own party . The party left fear that the loyalty they showed in the election campaign could be less taken into account than that of the Republicans critical of Trump. The and the independents, the so-called "Never Trumper" , were extremely visible in the election campaign. Groups like "The Lincoln Project" drew attention to themselves in elaborate TV spots and on social media. How big their actual contribution was is controversial.

activists point out that it was rather their decades of grassroots work that prepared the ground for Biden's victories in states like Arizona and Georgia. There is much to be said for it: So in Arizona the voices of the Latinos , but also those of the “Native Americans” were at least one of the decisive factors. And in Georgia , the massive mobilization of mainly African American voters contributed greatly to the success of the Democrats.

Ultimately, several factors are decisive for an election success. The winner then has many options to thank his supporters. Biden now has to be careful that he keeps his balance. Because in view of the great resistance in the Republican Party against his election, he needs one thing above all in order to govern successfully: the support of his party.
