Donald Trump on course for US election victory

Donald Trump won the key swing states of Florida, North Carolina and Ohio early this morning, giving him a clear path to the White House.

The Republican surpassed expectations and confounded pollsters in Florida, where Hillary Clinton had been expected to win following a surge in the Hispanic vote.

Hillary Clinton’s hopes of a swift victory faded as one of the most bitterly-contested elections in US history was this morning on a knife-edge.

Mr Trump’s unexpected success in Florida meant that the US election was likely to come down to a small handful of swing states.

Mrs Clinton managed to win the battlegrounds of Virginia and Colorado, but she needed to take Michigan, Nevada, Iowa and Pennsylvania to revive her chances.
