President-elect Joe Biden's margin of victory over President Donald Trump surpassed 6 million votes on Friday, as ballots continue to be counted across the nation.

(CNN)President-elect Joe Biden's margin of victory over President Donald Trump surpassed 6 million votes on Friday, as ballots continue to be counted across the nation.

Trump has refused to accept defeat in the 2020 election, despite Biden's decisive win in the Electoral College and the popular vote.

The former vice president has won nearly 80 million votes, which is more votes than any US presidential candidate in history by a considerable margin.

Trump has received nearly 74 million votes.

CNN and other outlets projected Biden won the race nearly two weeks ago, when Pennsylvania's 20 electoral votes put Biden above the 270 needed to become president.

Biden ultimately is projected to get 306 electoral votes while Trump gets 232, the same amount Trump beat Hillary Clinton by in 2016.

Experts had warned for months that there would be a lengthy vote count and that a result may not be known on the night of the election, or even days afterward.

The President and his allies are attempting to cast doubt on the entire voting process and have refused to cooperate in a transition of power.
