While the votes should represent this number, some states have more sway than others.
For example, California has a total of 53 electors representing 746,415 people, while Wyoming has just one for a population of 577,737.
As such, one candidate can win the states with the most voters and least electors, securing the popular vote but not vital Electoral College majority.

According to a poll by RealClearPolitics for the Financial Times, Mr Biden is on track to collect the most Electoral College votes.
