President Joe Biden fairly and legally won the 2020 presidential election, but some supporters of former President Donald Trump have hung their hopes of a different outcome on the U.S. Supreme Court. And in some cases, Biden detractors believe the court has overturned the election.

The Supreme Court had a sensational term, issuing rulings on abortion, gun rights and the environment, but they didn’t weigh in on the presidential election, much less overturn it.
In the fall, the court is expected to consider the power state legislatures have over elections, but this won’t have any bearing on the outcome of the 2020 election.
