Republican Donald Trump has won the 2016 presidential election, in a stunning upset victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton. Trump built national momentum by winning states including Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania in a tighter-than-anticipated race.

Trump also won red states including Texas, Indiana, Oklahoma, West Virginia, Tennessee and South Carolina, while Democrat Hillary Clintonwon Virginia, Colorado, and blue states including California, Vermont, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts and New York, but they weren’t enough to boost her above Trump.

After millions of Americans cast their ballots on Tuesday to determine who will be the next U.S. President, Clinton and Trump vied for the 270 electoral votes needed to win the 2016 presidential election. The White House hopefuls duked it out in 11 potential battleground states—including the traditional red state of Georgia and the blue state of Michigan. The five most likely to be swing states were North Carolina, Florida, Ohio, New Hampshire and Nevada—and so far three of those have gone to Trump.
