Bhubaneswar: Upsetting major predictions American Presidential Republican nominee Donald Trump won the race to the White House with a series of unlikely and surprise wins in major pro-democrat states like Florida, Ohio. He claimed 276 electoral votes.
Trump pulled victories in Florida, Ohio, Iowa, North Carolina and a seemingly one in Wisconsin. Similarly, he led in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Arizona and several of mid and south-east states putting him in commanding position to grab the all important 270 Electoral College votes needed to win the state-to-state fight for the most powerful post in the world.
His Democrat opponent Hillary Clinton had victories in some major big western states including Virginia, Colorado, Oregon, Nevada, Washington, Illinois, California, New York and some other north eastern smaller states. Putting up a good fight she managed 218 electoral votes.
