The Final Verdict


After a long nail biting race, the verdict was finally announced. The 45th president is republican candidate Donald Trump.

With five swing states, including Florida and Ohio, Trump won the electoral collage of 276 votes. The candidates only needed 270 electoral votes to win. Although Hillary Clinton had won the popular vote by over 100,000 votes.

The election took a turn for the unexpected. Certain states went against their political norm, and history as democratic states, by voting as republican states. Like the crucial swing state of Pennsylvania.

Trump will officially take the presidential seat as the United States president for the next 4 years, in January of 2017.
