US Election Too Close to Call
The U.S. election is proving to be a much tighter race than many had expected.
To win, the successful candidate must have 270 electoral college votes. At 8 pm Hilary Clinton had 190 while Donald Trump has 187
The votes are showing a definite rural urban split with Trump picking up votes in areas outside major centres.
Clinton has been behind for much of the count tonight but jumped ahead collecting the votes in California.
There are still several key States to be decided.
The race is far from over.
As one election commenter has remarked Trump has gone from”Long shot to real shot”.
