- Story Text: The upcoming election weighed on voters minds on Sunday (November 6), just two days before the United States chooses its new president.
Signs of Tuesday's (November 8) election were everywhere in New York's Times Square as souvenir shops displayed everything from bobbleheads to t-shirts featuring Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and her opponent Republican nominee Donald Trump.
Standing outside one of the shops, New Yorker Thomas Hard he didn't expect any changes no matter who won.
"Regardless of whoever is president, whatever their agenda is, they've both got their agendas. For people like me, it's not going to change that much. The average person in America, the only thing that might change, you might get a little more taxes to pay or a little less to pay, but basically everything is going to stay the same," he said.
Both Clinton and Trump will hold their Election Night rallies in New York.
Voter Sheridan Clayborne said he expected Clinton to win.
"I think it probably going to be Hillary Clinton. A lot of stuff that Trump is saying just seems a little bit too crazy for my taste, so my guess is on Hillary Clinton," he explained.
The latest Reuters/Ipsos poll shows Clinton with a 5 percentage point lead over Trump in the national survey - 44 percent to 39 percent support - while races in the swing states of Florida, North Carolina have shifted from Clinton's control to being too close to call. The Reuters/Ipsos States of the Nation project estimates that Clinton has a 90 percent chance of winning the election.
