And the presidential results are rolling in, largely in favor of Democratic standard bearer Hillary Clinton, reports CNN.
CNN projects Clinton wins in DE, DC, IL, MD, MA, NJ, RI; and that Donald Trump will win OK, MS and TN. If you’re counting, that’s 68 electoral votes for her; 68 for him. The magic number is 270.

CNN is relying on VoteCastr, a Silicon Valley-funded team of data scientists, for its numbers. The Daily News reports: “Using a method called “predictive turnout modeling — an analysis that applies known voter behavior and patterns with fresh data about who actually did turn out to vote — the company plans to release, on a near-hourly basis, projections on how Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are faring.”
