The race for the White House has reached its conclusion. After the candidates traded increasingly vicious blows to become Barack Obama’s successor America has finally gone to the polls.
Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have been knocking lumps out of each other for months ahead of one of the most talked about elections in recent history.
Americans have been to the voting stations to choose their new Commander in Chief.
Mrs Clinton had about a 90% chance of becoming the next American President, according to the final Reuters/Ipsos States of the Nation survey. But that lead looks to be drastically dropping.
As votes pour in from across the country, Donald Trump has managed to take Indiana, West Virginia, South Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi , Texas and Kentucky and has sensationally also won Ohio and Florida while Hillary Clinton has fallen behind taking states including New Jersey, New York, Delaware, Vermont, Massachusetts and Maryland giving Trump a 244 to 215 lead.
Already there’s tears at the Clinton headquarters, but it’s not over until the winner is announced. Oh dear!
