Trump vs Clinton, who will clinch White House?
Reuters-Ipsos States of the Nation poll gives Clinton 90% chance
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.
