- Story Text:Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump faced voters on Tuesday (November 08) as millions of Americans turn out on Election Day to pick the next U.S. president and end a bruising campaign that polls said favored Clinton.
An early indicator of the strength of each candidate could come in North Carolina and Florida, two must-win states for Trump that have been the subject of frantic last-minute efforts by both the Republican and Democratic campaigns.
Races in both those states were shifting from favoring Clinton to being too close to call.
Support for the candidates was mixed at a polling station in Davie, Florida.
"In my neighborhood there are a lot of Trump supporters so, who knows, it's up in the air, it's very close this year," said Clinton supporter Shalena Ali-Bynom.
"Trump. Looking to drain the swamp in Washington, D.C.," countered John Kyle after casting his vote.
A Reuters/Ipsos States of the Nation poll gave Clinton a 90 percent chance of defeating Trump and said she was on track to win 303 Electoral College votes out of 270 needed, to Trump's 235.
