Today’s the big day. As millions of Americans flock to the polls, we are beginning to tabulate the latest results.
After a very long and grueling campaign season, we are seeing how Americans feel about the major issues and the candidates. In one of the most divisive elections in recent history, after shocking scandals, media bias, and wild-ranging polls, voters are having the final say.
Throughout the day we will be keeping you updated on the results state by state. The earliest results are coming in and we are bringing them to you.
From 11 Alive:
As the world waits with bated breath for the results of Tuesday’s contentious presidential election, its eyes turned briefly to three sleepy hamlets in rural New Hampshire, as their residents — fewer than 100 total — became the first in the nation to cast their ballots.
In Dixville Notch, Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump 4-2. Libertarian Gary Johnson received one vote, and the 2012 Republican candidate, Mitt Romney received a surprise write-in ballot. In the slightly larger burg of Hart’s Location, Clinton won with 17 votes to Trump’s 14. Johnson got three votes, while write-ins Bernie Sanders and John Kasich each got one. And in Millsfield, Trump won decisively, 16-4, with one write-in for Bernie Sanders.
So, in the three New Hampshire towns with midnight voting, Trump came out ahead 32-25.
How does their record stack up to the American public?
Since reviving midnight voting, Hart’s Location voted for Dole in 1996, Bush in 2000 and 2004, and, like Dixville, broke with tradition to vote for Obama in 2008 and 2012.
So, if even though these locations tend to vote Republican, they may just be the weathervane for what’s to come tonight.
We’ve seen unprecedented enthusiasm for outside candidate Donald Trump. To combat his momentum, the liberal media and the Democratic Party have pulled out all the stops to give them the win.
Will all the rhetoric, colluding, and manipulation put Hillary Clinton in the White House? Or will the populist movement by Americans to take their country back install Donald Trump? We will find out soon enough.
