Donald Trump is now only 32 electoral points short of achieving the magic number of 270 electoral votes needed to be President of the United States of America.
The path for Hilary Clinton (with 209 votes) appears to be getting Narrower and Narrower as the night goes on and global markets have already started reacting by taking a massive dip across the board (e.g., the Dow Jones, the FTSE 100 and several others).
On a night where several had forecasted a straight path for Hilary Clinton, it didn’t quite turn out that way, with Clinton dropping several key battleground states.
In a very surprising race, Donald Trump has out performed the 2012 Republican nominee, Mitt Romney by taking areas thought to be democratic safe havens, while Hilary Clinton consistently under-performed against the 2012 Democratic nominee (i.e., President Barack Obama), by not taking any republican safe havens but losing key democratic safe areas. Overall, the advantage and momentum appears to currently be with Donald Trump -albeit the race is still ongoing.
