Why have pollsters been wrong so often recently?
2016.11.09 14:02:02

They were very wrong about the British general election in 2015.

They were very wrong about Brexit.

And it seems like they were wrong about Trump's performance during the US election.

There's no doubt they'll be asking themselves the above question tomorrow morning.

'There has to be a real third party next time'
2016.11.09 13:03:43

Standing outside a bar in Dallas, Texas, Jared Hodge, a 30-year-old financial analyst, says he has "no regrets" about not voting for Clinton despite the likely Trump victory. He would have been disappointed by the outcome of the elections either way, he says.

Explaining that he voted Green Party and Libertarian Party for most slots, Hodge wrote in "Giant Meteor" in the presidential slot.

"I grew up in a black Democratic household, but I don't feel [the Democrats] have done anything for me," he said, explaining that he had hoped to cast his vote for self-described socialist Bernie Sanders until that candidate withdrew and threw his weight behind Clinton.

Hodge, who describes himself as a progressive, said that Trump has changed the country: "Trump has galvanised a movement that can't be made to feel shame [for racism and sexism]".

"There has to be a real third party next time," he said. "Meanwhile, real change is taking place on the ground with grassroots movements."

African-Americans in Michigan weigh in as state looks set to go to Trump
2016.11.09 12:22:55

The New York Times' live forecast now gives Trump 48.7% in Michigan and Clinton 46.9%.
Valdave Penny, who works as a driver, says he’s voting for Clinton because he doesn't like the alternative.

"Donald Trump has no political experience," he says. "And he’s not for my people, I don’t think."

Penny says he thinks the community needs to rally for the Democrats in order to maintain progress that President Barack Obama has made in the country. "I think it’ll be better for our livelihood."

Brandon Lett, a machine operator, says he really doesn’t want either to become president. At the same time, he came out to vote for Clinton because he wanted to use his voice.

"I have an opinion, and I want to be heard," he says.

Jasmine McFarland, 24, says she also wanted to be heard and that those who choose not to vote cannot be upset with results.

"Everyone complains about the president, but not everyone votes. It’s better to come out here for one day and vote than to complain for the next four or eight years."

Excitement and fear at DC watch party
2016.11.09 10:45:16

At a college bar in Washington, DC, tensions are running high as results trickle in. Every win for Clinton brings a rapturous applause from the crowd and every percentage point gained for Trump is met with overwhelming boos. People continue to pack into the bar, gathering around TV screens that line the walls.

Kelli Slater from Howard University thinks Clinton has the right experience and is the right candidate for the job. "I don't view this election as voting for a lesser of two evils," she says.

Amira Karim and Marianne Caballero are both economists. Neither can vote - Amira is form Singapore and Marianne is from Venezuela. They say watching this election as outsiders has been "insane".

"The idea that people would even consider someone like Trump is shocking to me," Marianne says.

What if Trump loses but doesn't concede?
2016.11.09 09:23:30

Hillary Clinton may win the night but Team Trump have made no secret that they will cry foul if she does.

Is it fighting talk or something more serious? And how will Trump's most loyal supporters respond if their leader claims the vote was rigged?

'If Trump wins, there's going to be war'
2016.11.09 09:21:49

For John Hadley in Detroit, this election boils down to respect or, as he explains, the lack of it.

"Just look at what's been said in this election," Hadley, a laser technician, says. "Without respect you can't get nowhere."

Hadley says he is a former Marine who has traveled to places like Japan, Korea and South America. He fears what would happen to US foreign relations if Donald Trump were elected.

"If Trump wins, there's going to be war. Our president affects our values and status in the world." Of course, Hadley says, Clinton is not without her faults.

"She got her problems but no more than any other politician."
