Early US Results | Unexpectedly swinging towards Trump 150 : 109
After a brutal campaign, unprecedented in the American history, the US went to poll yesterday. Early results are out and Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were locked in a dead heat Tuesday in their historic clash for White House.

With voting over in most eastern states and Americans still lining up to cast their ballots on the West Coast, television networks called 16 states so far for the Republican Trump ─ a band of red on the electoral map stretching from South Carolina to Texas.
