Donald Trump now over 80% likelihood of being elected US President
***Filed at 3.40am***
President Trump. Let that sink in.
Donald Trump has taken Ohio, and he has taken it comfortably. In fact projections suggest a whopping 12-point lead. It is a vital win, affording him 18 electoral votes, and justifies his tireless campaigning in the State.
At the time of writing, the New York Times forecast that there is an 86% likelihood that the Republican candidate will be elected the President of the United States. This makes a mockery of all the pre-election polls.
