Gov. Cuomo says Joe Biden’s win could have been hailed as a ‘blowout’

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Sunday that Joe Biden’s win in the presidential election would have been hailed as a “blowout” if Americans didn’t have to wait several days for ballots to be counted in several battleground states.

“If these election results came in on one night, it would be called a blowout. That would be the headline,” Cuomo told anchor George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week.”

“[Biden leads by] four million popular votes, states no one thought that Joe Biden going to win, votes that Trump was counting on — the military votes — never materialized. It would be a blowout.”

So far, Biden has received more than 75 million votes, while President Trump has received at least 70 million.

Cuomo called on Republicans to accept Biden’s victory and not pursue lawsuits to challenge the results of the election.

“I think it’s a mistake. It is the exact disunity that was just rejected. Now you’re going to stretch to find some legal case and further deteriorate trust in the Democratic constitution of this nation?” he said.

“Stop the rancor. Stop the fighting. We have real problems. Let’s move together” he added.

Cuomo said he believed that the election results showed the country has “rejected the negativity, the personality, the controversy” of the president.

“He did everything he could to divide the nation,” Cuomo said. “He disunited the States of America. And Joe Biden is the exact opposite.”

“You heard him speak from his heart last night, that’s who he is, he’s an authentic person,” he continued, referring to Biden’s victory speech. “He’s about finding commonality.”
