USA election results: Trump defeats Clinton in Ohio

Bill Clinton Gives Final Solo Campaign Rally

North Carolina was one of the hardest-fought contests of the election and is one of the map's newest swing states. A Clinton win in either OH or Florida would likely slam the door on Trump's chances.

The pair often accused each other of being fundamentally unfit to lead the United States as it faces challenges such as an arduous economic recovery, Islamist militants, and tensions with Russian Federation. S&P 500 Index futures sank 4 percent and Mexico's peso plunged by the most in eight years.

After two four-year terms in the White House, he is barred by the USA constitution from running for re-election. Democrat Charles Ikner of Cross Lanes, West Virginia, opted for Trump, saying it was time for "fresh blood" in the White House. A Reuters/Ipsos States of the Nation poll gave her a 90 percent chance of defeating Trump and becoming the first woman elected US president.

Clinton team continued to express confidence that their path was solid.

Hillary Clinton has won Oregon.

Trump held a narrow lead in MI with about half the state's precincts reporting and he had a three point margin in Wisconsin.

But even after the final numbers come in, the exit polls might not do a great job of assessing these votes.

It wasn't just the raw tally that buoyed Republican hopes. Republican Mitt Romney narrowly won the state in 2012.

Having made the new Federal Bureau of Investigation review a centerpiece of his closing case to voters, Trump said Clinton was being protected by a "totally rigged system". Trump was leading in all of them, except for Pennsylvania, as votes came in at about 9:30 p.m. The county is located on the state's Gulf coast, between St. Petersburg and Ft.

CNN said with 48.9 percent, Trump was ahead of Clinton (47 percent) in the national popular vote.

About four in 10 voters said their top priority in a candidate was one who could bring needed change, but a similar share said they were voting on experience or judgment. "He was very balanced, not Pollyannaish at all", Sessions said.

The projection for Donald Trump is from the states of Missouri, Mississippi, Oklahoma and Tennessee.

Also at stake on Tuesday was control of Congress, with Republicans defending a slight four-seat majority in the 100-member Senate. As the polls close and votes trickle in, Republican nominee Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton are in a battle to the finish. The initial returns gave them a narrow chance of meeting that goal. The House of Representatives, where all 435 seats were up for grabs, was expected to remain in Republican hands.

Her campaign picked a suitably symbolic location for her election night party - the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City, which, in a nod to the historic moment, offers a glass ceiling.

After campaigning for over six hundred days and spending over six billion dollars, Hillary Rodham Clinton and Donald J. Trump have nothing left to do but wait as Americans finally head to the polls to choose which among them will be their next commander-in-chief.

Hillary Clinton wins Colorado with nine electoral votes.

Casting her ballot at an elementary school near her home in suburban NY on Tuesday morning, Clinton acknowledged the weight of the day, saying: " so many people are counting on the outcome of this election". Here's a look at some preliminary results of exit polling conducted for The Associated Press and television networks in Virginia.

Results are expected to start coming in from the polls. In this year's balloting, 50 percent had college degrees, which ABC said was a record high.

Trump, 70, cast his ballot alongside his wife Melania in a Manhattan school gymnasium.

The polls also showed that voters made up their mind whom to vote for a long time ago. Polls already open in states across the Eastern U.S. are seeing lines of voters form as people prepare to cast their ballots.

"We know enough about my opponent, we know who he is", Clinton said as she addressed the crowd of 33,000, her largest of the campaign.

The victor of the election will inherit leadership of the world's largest economy and a nation perhaps irreconcilably divided over immigration, trade and its role in the world.

After all of the sound and fury over Trump's treatment of women, it turned out the issue bothered half of all voters a lot - and women were more concerned about it than men.

Mrs. Clinton will address supporters at the Javits Centre in Manhattan, while Mr. Trump holds an event at the Hilton Midtown hotel. Trump, meanwhile, portrayed himself as the savior of a nation hobbled by bad trade deals, declining manufacturing, and beset by illegal immigration and terrorist threats.
