WASHINGTON -

Hillary Clinton has won Nevada and its six electoral votes.
    
Her victory there in the presidential election brings Clinton's Electoral College total to 215. Republican Donald Trump has 244 votes.
    
It takes 270 electoral votes to win the presidency.
    
Clinton's win in Nevada is the first time since the 1940s that the Democrats have carried the state in three consecutive elections.
    
The winner of the U.S. presidential election has failed to carry Nevada only once.

Donald Trump has won the battleground state of Iowa.

___
    
He was awarded the state's six Electoral College votes early Wednesday.
    
Trump now has 244 electoral votes. His Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton has 209.
    
Iowa had voted for a Republican only once since 1984 but polls remained tight throughout the campaign. Trump proved popular with the state's sizable evangelical population while Clinton and her allies campaigned frequently in its college towns.

____

Donald Trump has won Utah.
    
The Republican nominee was awarded its six electoral college votes.
    
He now has 238 electoral votes. His Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton has 209.
    
Utah is normally one of the safest states on the map for Republicans. But the presence of independent Evan McMullin changed the calculation this year as polls consistently reflected a tight three-way race. Trump also had struggled with Mormons, who are normally reliably Republican voters.
  

Donald Trump has won Georgia.
    
The Republican nominee on Tuesday was awarded its 16 electoral votes.
    
Trump now has 232 electoral votes while his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton has 209.
    
The Democrats had some hopes that changing demographics in Georgia could allow then to flip the reliably Republican state but their efforts fell short.
    
___

Hillary Clinton has won Washington state and its 12 electoral votes.
    
The victory in Tuesday's elections brings the former secretary of state's electoral vote total to 209. Republican Donald Trump has 216.
    
It takes 270 votes to win the presidency.

_____

Donald Trump has won battleground North Carolina and its 15 electoral votes.
    
The victory in Tuesday's elections brings the billionaire's electoral vote total to 216. Democrat Hillary Clinton has 197.
    
North Carolina was one of the hardest-fought contests of the election and is one of the map's newest swing states. It consistently went for Republicans until Barack Obama captured it in 2008. Republican Mitt Romney narrowly won the state in 2012.
    
At least 270 electoral votes are needed to win the presidency.

____

Hillary Clinton has won Oregon.
    
The Democratic nominee on Tuesday was awarded its seven electoral votes.
    
Clinton now has 197 electoral votes. Her Republican opponent Donald Trump has 201.
    
Several key battleground states have yet to be won.
_____

Hillary Clinton has won California and Hawaii. Donald Trump has won Idaho's four electoral votes.
    
The results in the West bring Clinton's electoral vote total to 190 and Trump's to 201. It takes 270 votes to win the presidency.
    
The results were not surprising. California, with 55 electoral votes, has voted for Democrats beginning in 1992. Hawaii has chosen Democrats consistently since 1988.
    
Idaho has voted for Republicans beginning in 1968.

____
   
Donald Trump has won the key battleground state of Florida.
    
Trump on Tuesday was awarded 29 electoral votes.
    
He now has 197 electoral votes. His Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton has 131.
    
Both candidates have spent an extraordinary amount of time in Florida, one of the most important prizes on the map. Trump calls Florida his "second home" and his campaign acknowledged that a win there is vital to his White House hopes.
    
Barack Obama captured the Sunshine State in both 2008 and 2012.

Hillary Clinton has won Colorado.
    
The Democratic nominee captured its nine electoral votes Tuesday. She now has 131 total electoral votes while her Republican opponent Donald Trump has 168.
    
Colorado has become an attainable state for Democrats in recent years thanks to shifting demographics.
    
Clinton tried to woo a surge in Latino voters and the state's college-educated whites while Trump repeatedly made pitches to Colorado's large military population and swaths of rural voters.
    
___
    
Hillary Clinton has won Virginia.
    
The Democratic nominee has captured its 13 electoral votes.
    
Virginia was reliably Republican for decades until Barack Obama won it twice, thanks in part to huge turnout from Washington, D.C.'s suburbs. Clinton's running mate, Tim Kaine, is a senator from Virginia, though Trump made a late push in the state.
    
The victory gives her 122 electoral votes. Her Republican opponent Donald Trump has 168.
    
Donald Trump has won the electoral prize of Ohio, a state known for picking presidents.
    
The Republican wins the state's 18 electoral votes in Tuesday's election, bringing his total to 168. Hillary Clinton has 109.
    
Clinton had appeared ready to concede Ohio's 18 electoral votes to Trump as polls showed him pulling ahead even in some traditionally Democratic blue-collar areas. But Trump struggled after release of a video in which he talked about groping women and kissing them without their permission.
    
Republicans held their nominating convention in Cleveland. Governor and one-time Republican presidential rival John Kasich refused to endorse Trump.
   
Donald Trump has won Missouri.
    
The Republican nominee was awarded its 10 electoral votes. The result was not as a surprise, as the last Democratic victory in the Show Me State came in 1996.
    
Trump now has 150 electoral votes. His Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton has 109.

____


Hillary Clinton has won New Mexico and its five electoral votes.
    
That brings her electoral college vote total in Tuesday's election to 109. Republican Donald Trump has 140 votes.
    
___

Republican Gary Herbert has been re-elected governor of Utah.
    
Herbert had a strong advantage in Tuesday's elections and was considered the favorite in the conservative state. But many Utah conservatives were not enthused about GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump. And Herbert had vacillated on his support for the New York billionaire.
    
Herbert has been in office since 2009 and had been challenged by Democrat Mike Weinholtz, a wealthy former CEO of a medical staffing company.
    
___
Donald Trump has won Montana.
    
The Republican presidential nominee on Tuesday was awarded the state's three electoral votes.
    
The result was not a surprise, as Montana was considered a safely Republican state.
    
Trump now has 132 electoral votes. His Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton has 104 votes.
    
___
   
    
Preliminary exit polls show the racial divides that were expected to define the 2016 presidential election.
    
Polls conducted for national media by Edison Research show Republican Donald Trump winning a majority of white voters while Democrat Hillary Clinton is drawing support from about three out of four nonwhite voters.
    
Trump's support is strongest among whites without a college degree. He's winning nearly two-thirds of them. Whites with college degrees are split between Trump and Clinton. Trump is winning both among white men and white women, though his margin is much higher among men.
    
Clinton's strongest support comes from African-Americans. She's winning about nine out of 10 black voters. She's winning about two out of three Hispanics and Asian-Americans.
    
___
   
    
Republican Donald Trump is maintaining Republicans' advantage among white voters nationwide, but perhaps not by the usual margin that the party's nominees have enjoyed.
    
Preliminary exit polls of voters who have already cast presidential ballots show Trump winning a majority of whites. He has not quite reached the roughly six-out-of-10 share that Mitt Romney notched four years ago in his unsuccessful challenge of President Barack Obama.
    
The difference appears to come among white women. Trump is posting about the same, if not a slightly wider margin among white men as Romney did in 2012. But his lead over Clinton among white women appears to be in single digits, short of Romney's double-digit advantage four years ago.
    
___
  
    
Donald Trump has won Louisiana and its eight electoral votes.
    
That extends his Electoral College total in Tuesday's elections to 137, compared with Hillary Clinton's 104.
    
History was on Donald Trump's side in the state. Louisiana hasn't given its electoral votes to a Democrat since Bill Clinton won 52 percent of the vote two decades ago.

___

Hillary Clinton has won Connecticut.
    
The Democratic nominee on Tuesday was awarded Connecticut's seven electoral votes.
    
The result was not a surprise, as Connecticut was considered a safely Democratic state.
    
Clinton now has 104 electoral votes. Her Republican opponent Donald Trump has 129.
    
___
   
    
Republican Eric Holcomb has won the governor's race in Indiana and Democrat Jim Justice has won the governor's race in West Virginia.
    
Holcomb defeated Democrat John Gregg in Tuesday's election and will succeed Gov. Mike Pence. Pence is presidential candidate Donald Trump's vice presidential running mate.
    
In West Virginia, Gregg defeated state Senate President Bill Cole.
    
___
   
    
Republican Donald Trump has won Arkansas and its six electoral votes.
    
That brings his electoral vote total in Tuesday's election to 129. Democrat Hillary Clinton has 97.
    
It takes 270 votes to win the presidency.
    
The result was expected. Earlier polling showed Trump leading Clinton by double digits in the state where she served as first lady for 12 years while her husband was the governor.
    
The once reliably blue state has turned red in recent years. Republicans now control all of Arkansas' statewide and federal offices, as well as a majority of seats in both chambers of the state legislature.
    
Arkansas has backed the Republican candidate for the White House in every election since 1980 - except for years when Bill Clinton was running for president.

_____

Donald Trump has won Texas, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Kansas and Nebraska while Hillary Clinton has won New York and Illinois.
    
Trump also on Tuesday won two of Nebraska's congressional districts. In the state that awards by congressional district, one remains too close to call.
    
Trump was awarded Texas' 38 electoral votes, the second-largest prize on the map. He also won six from Kansas, four from his victories in Nebraska and three apiece from Wyoming, North Dakota and South Dakota.
    
Clinton was awarded 20 from Illinois and 29 from New York, the state both candidates call home. Trump had declared he would try to win New York but never mounted a serious effort there.
    
The Republican nominee now has 123 electoral votes. Clinton has 97.
  

_______

Donald Trump has won Mississippi and its six electoral votes.
    
That brings his Electoral College total in Tuesday's election to 66, compared with Hillary Clinton's 48.
    
The outcome was not unexpected. Mississippi has voted for Republicans in every presidential election starting with 1972, with the exception of Democrat Jimmy Carter in 1976.

____

Hillary Clinton has won Rhode Island and its four electoral votes.
    
That brings her total Tuesday to 48, compared with Donald Trump's 60.
    
It takes 270 electoral votes to win the presidency.
    
Rhode Island has voted for Republicans for president only four times since 1928.
    
In 2012, President Barack Obama defeated Republican Mitt Romney in the state by about 27 percent.

_____

Donald Trump has won Alabama and its nine electoral votes after Sen. Jeff Sessions endorsed the billionaire candidate.
    
That brings Trump's total in the Electoral College to 60 votes, to Clinton's 44 votes.
    
It takes 270 votes to win the presidency.
    
The results continue the state's streak of voting for Republicans every presidential election since 1980.
    
___

Donald Trump has won Tennessee and its 11 electoral votes.
    
Tuesday's vote is the fifth presidential contest in a row in which the state voted for the Republican candidate. That includes the 2000 election, when native son Al Gore lost the state to Republican George W. Bush.
    
It takes 270 votes to win the presidency.
