Election Night: Results rush!

At 1am (GMT) results from the election came in quick and fast with many results being declared which resulted in the following electoral college numbers:

Clinton: 68
Trump: 57

An interesting points and theme which appears to be emerging is that third party candidates such as Libertarians and the Greens may have done the best they've done since 2000. Perhaps unsurprisingly considering the unpopularity of the two candidates.

Exit poll data even showed that 59% of voters said they found Hillary Clinton untrustworthy and 65% saying they found Donald Trump untrustworthy, shocking considering one of these two people will be the 45th President of the United States.

States Clinton has won:
New Jersey, Vermont, Illinois, Rhode Island, Washington DC, Delaware, Maryland, Illinois, District of Columbia and Massachusetts.

States Trump has won:
Indiana, Kentucky, West Virginia, Oklahoma and Mississippi.

States such as Ohio, Florida and North Carolina are all too close to call.

Information accurate at time of publication.
