US Elections: Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump fight for White House

Wall Street stocks rise as US votes S&P 500 up 0.4

"I hope in 2020 we will have more third-party candidates running for President".

Clinton was on track to win 303 votes in the electoral college to Trump's 235, clearing the 270 needed for victory. If Clinton wins Florida, she just needs to win one of the three big swing states of Ohio, Michigan and Pennsylvania while Trump would have to win all three. Republicans expect to maintain their House majority.

The former NY senator seemed poised to become the first female president of the United States, with most major polling and analytics sites giving her between a 75 and 85 percent chance of winning the contest.

Clinton arrived home in White Plains, New York early Tuesday morning, greeting a few hundred supporters on the tarmac.

About 26% of Latina women voted for Trump, which is still kind of high considering everything Trump said about women and immigrants. "We have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton", Comey wrote.

Several investors said VoteCastr's data pushed stock prices higher, although many questioned its accuracy.

Trump's chances rest with his performance in Florida, Michigan, North Carolina and OH, which were too close to call on Sunday, when polling ended, and Pennsylvania, where Clinton enjoyed a slim lead of three percentage points. Clinton said the country's best days are still ahead.

Nine days ago, FBI Director James Comey shook the political world with a letter to Congress noting that emails "pertinent" to the investigation of Hillary Clinton's private email server had been discovered on a computer owned by former congressman Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., the estranged husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin. The inquiry had sapped Clinton's surging momentum at a crucial moment in the race and risked damaging Democrats running in down-ballot races.

U.S. stocks rose Tuesday, erasing opening losses as investors remained optimistic about Hillary Clinton's chances of winning the presidential election. She instead shifted to message of reconciliation after a rough campaign.

He also wants to know if the Federal Bureau of Investigation notified the Justice Department about its decision prior to Sunday's letter to Congress, and if so which Justice officials were told, as well as an overall timeline for when Federal Bureau of Investigation officials first found about the emails and told Justice leadership. "I really do want to be the president for everybody". Investors are looking to the Democratic candidate for stability after GOP nominee Donald Trump raised concerns about a major paradigm shift in USA politics. Clinton and Trump were both nostalgic at times, looking back fondly at a campaign that has put each on the brink of the presidency. "We have to win".

He vowed to "beat the corrupt system", slammed Mrs Clinton as "the face of failure" and criticised the "crooked media". "Do not let this opportunity slip away", he said. "Are we Crazy", Trump said to a crowd in Grand Rapids, Michigan at his final rally of the campaign. Who are you going to blame now? More than 42 million have already voted using the "early voting" provision of the American electoral system.

Across the country, almost 24 million early ballots were cast under the shadow of Comey's initial announcement of a new email review.

Clinton had ranks of surrogates from Barack Obama to Lady Gaga. Roughly half the states with advance voting have reported record turnout, including Florida and Nevada, which have booming Hispanic populations, a possible good sign for Clinton. Trump also led by one percentage point in the average of polls in North Carolina.
