In Georgia Primary, Trump Gets Over 140,000 More Votes Than Biden

President Donald Trump has so far received over 140,000 more votes in the Georgia primary than former Vice President Joe Biden.

With 70 percent of the precincts reporting for the GOP, Trump has gained 698,825 votes, compared with 552,253 for Biden, with 63 percent of precincts reporting for the Democrats, according to NBC News data.

Trump also received more votes than all of the Democratic candidates combined, including Senator Bernie Sanders, who received over 67,000 votes, and Senator Elizabeth Warren, who received nearly 12,000, as well as candidates who dropped out of the race months ago.

The president also outperformed former President Barack Obama's vote totals from the 2012 Georgia primary. Obama was running unopposed in the state and got 139,273 votes, over 500,000 fewer votes than Trump has received thus far.

Trump has been able to drive up voter turnout, resulting in his getting more votes than Obama did, multiple times already during this primary season. In the Iowa caucuses, Trump got over 30,000 more votes than Obama did in 2012. In New Hampshire, Trump got nearly 130,000 votes, more than twice as many as the former president received in 2012.

Trump and Biden both won their respective primaries, giving Biden even more delegates after he won the 1,991 he needs to get his party's nomination. It is the first time the former vice president has clinched his party's nomination in the three times he has run for president.

In a statement a few days after reaching 1,991 delegates, Biden said he is building a movement "that will transform our nation."

"It was an honor to compete alongside one of the most talented groups of candidates the Democratic Party has ever fielded, and I am proud to say that we are going into this general election a united party," he said.

"I am going to spend every day between now and November 3rd fighting to earn the votes of Americans all across this great country so that together we can win the battle for the soul of this nation and make sure that as we rebuild our economy everyone comes along," Biden said.

The next primaries will be in Kentucky and New York, both on June 23.

Newsweek reached out to the Trump and Biden campaigns for comments regarding the Georgia primary but did not hear back before publication.
