Trump vs Clin­ton, who will clinch White House?

Reuters-Ip­sos States of the Na­tion poll gives Clin­ton 90% chance

The Star (Kenya) - - News -

REUTERS/ Demo­crat Hil­lary Clin­ton and Repub­li­can Don­ald Trump face the judge­ment of the vot­ers on Tuesday as mil­lions of Amer­i­cans turn out on Elec­tion Day to pick the next US Pres­i­dent and end a bruis­ing cam­paign. Some polls said Clin­ton had a four-point edge.

In a bat­tle cen­tered largely on the char­ac­ter of the can­di­dates, Clin­ton, 69, a for­mer sec­re­tary of state and first lady, and Trump, 70, a New York busi­ness­man, made their fi­nal, fer­vent ap­peals to sup­port­ers late on Mon­day to turn out the vote.

Their fi­nal week of cam­paign­ing was a grind­ing se­ries of get-out-thevote ral­lies across bat­tle­ground states where the elec­tion is to be de­cided.

“We choose to be­lieve in a hope­ful, in­clu­sive, big-hearted Amer­ica,” Clin­ton said in Philadel­phia be­fore a crowd of 33,000 — the big­gest of her cam­paign. She was joined by Demo­cratic Pres­i­dent Barack Obama, his wife Michelle, and Clin­ton’s hus­band, for­mer Pres­i­dent Bill Clin­ton

Trump made one of his fi­nal ap­pear­ances late on Mon­day in Manch­ester, New Hamp­shire, where polls showed a tight race. “To­mor­row, the Amer­i­can work­ing class will strike back,” Trump said. “It’s about time.”

He brought much of his fam­ily on stage for his last rally in the state where he scored his first vic­tory in the Repub­li­can nom­i­na­tion fight.

Clin­ton went into Elec­tion Day as the fa­vorite to be­come the first US woman Pres­i­dent af­ter spend­ing eight years in the White House as the first lady in the 1990s.

A Reuters/Ip­sos States of the Na­tion poll gave Clin­ton a 90 per­cent chance of de­feat­ing Trump.
