A record 42 million voted using the “early voting” provision of the American electoral system. Exit polls conducted by Edison Research for national media outlets suggest a tight finish between Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump for the state’s 15 electoral votes. The polls suggest a majority of men back Trump, while Clinton won a majority among women with the margins essentially even.

More states are now rooting for Clinton: Maryland, Rhode Island. At the same time, deep red states like Oklahoma and Mississippi are unsurprisingly going the Trump way.
