Donald Trump has won the state of Indiana. The state has 11 electoral college votes and has traditionally been a Republican state. Mitt Romney won the state in 2012 by 10.2%. Indiana is also the home state of Mike Pence, the Republican vice presidential nominee, who is its governor.
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.
