Donald Trump Is Smashing Election Night So Far

Donald Trump has just taken a considerable lead over Hillary Clinton in the race to become the next president of America, with Trump currently on 123 electoral college points and Clinton 97.

The Republican presidential candidate secured the states of Kentucky, Indiana, South Carolina and West Virginia.

But Clinton hit back, taking Democrat strongholds such as Pennsylvania, Delaware and Maryland.

However, in the key state of Florida, the candidates' running scores put them neck and neck in the race to claim the Sunshine State's 29 college votes. The outcome of this vote is exceptionally important.

Trump voted on Tuesday at around 11am in Manhattan, arriving at the polling station to boos and cheers, accompanied by his wife Melania and daughter Ivanka.

But before voting, he told Fox News that he thought the polls, which show Hillary Clinton with a narrow edge over him, were intentionally wrong.

"I do think a lot of the polls are purposely wrong," he said.

Clinton has denounced Trump for calling Mexican immigrants 'rapists' and promoting a ban on Muslims entering the country.

Still lads, there's a long way to go because they need 270 electoral college votes to win. So get the coffee on, get the pizza and tinnies in and keep tuned to TheLADbible for more election content!
