America votes in tight presidential polls today

                                                 Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton

Millions of Americans will go the polls today to elect their 45th president in an election that promises to be one of the most competitive ever experienced in United States.
 It is expected to be a tight race between Republican Donald Trump and
Democratic Hillary Clinton, both of whom, in a dramatic final day of
campaign, criss-crossed several battlegrounds in a campaign that
lasted into the night.

They hopscotched from Pennsylvania to North Carolina to Michigan,
making final plea to voters before polls open.
 “It’s been a pretty polarizing election season” said Dr. Christina Greer of Fordham University.
 “Trump, on the one hand has really galvanized a certain faction in
American politics that is anti-immigrant, anti-religious beliefs, et
cetera; and you have someone in Hillary Clinton that many people feel
as though they’ve known for 30 years and they don’t trust her.”
 A record number of Americans - more than 46million - had voted early
by post or at polling stations, while there are signs of a high
turnout among Hispanic voters, which is believed to favour Mrs
 According to the final Reuters/Ipsos States of the Nation project,
Clinton has about a 90 percent chance of defeating Trump in the race
for the White House.
 “Her chances are roughly similar to last week's odds, and any upset by
Trump on Tuesday depends on an unlikely combination of turnouts of
white, black and Hispanic voters in six or seven states,” said the
survey released on Monday.
 The former secretary of state was leading Trump by about 45 percent to
42 percent in the popular vote, and was on track to win 303 votes in
the Electoral College to Trump’s 235, clearing the 270 needed for
victory, the survey revealed.
 To win, Trump needs higher turnout among Republican white voters than
that which materialized in 2012, a drop-off in ballots by
African-American voters and a smaller-than-predicted increase in
Hispanic voters, the project showed.
 The winner is not determined by the popular votes but by the so-called
Electoral College votes awarded to the winner in each state.

 As the bitter campaign wound down, both candidates traded insults with
the business mogul describing his opponent as the "most corrupt person
ever to seek the presidency", while Clinton toned down her usual
assault on Mr. Trump’s conduct and temperament.
 In Philadelphia, Mrs. Clinton described today’s election as “the test
of our time while Trump said it’s “our independence day.”
 Mrs Clinton urged voters to back a "hopeful, inclusive, big-hearted
America" while Mr Trump told supporters they had a "magnificent chance
to beat the corrupt system".
 Trump, meanwhile, presented himself as the face of change for
Americans, whom he said had been let down by a corrupt political
 "Hillary is the face of failure. She's the face of failure," Trump
said, blasting Clinton's political record and service as secretary of
 Mr. Trump urged Americans to embrace his plan to overhaul the country.
“I am asking for the votes of all Americans, Democrats, Republicans,
independents,” Mr. Trump said, “who are so desperately in need of
 “Now we have one flawed candidate left to beat…Go to bed. Go to bed
right now, get up and vote,” he told his supporters.
 Joined in Philadelphia by President Barack Obama and first lady
Michelle, the Democratic nominee tagged the election as a choice
“between division and unity.”
 “Tomorrow, you can vote for a hopeful, inclusive, big-hearted
America,” she said.
 Despite the bitterness of the campaign, there were signs that
Americans were seizing the opportunity to express themselves at the
ballot box in large numbers.
