US election: Trump victory, carries WI

Against most poll predictions, Republican candidate Donald Trump appears certain to win the Presidency of the United States, defeating Democratic nominee Hilary Clinton.

According to an article in the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Mr Trump is predicted to win the state of Wisconsin, in which the North American territories of the Kingdom are located. 

However according to unofficial results Mrs Clinton has appeared to have carried Milwaukee County itself. This area, which adjoins the national territory, is a traditional Democratic Party stronghold in the state. 
According to the Journal-Sentinel, Mr Trump would be the first Republican party candidate to win the state since 1984, and his success is ascribed to an unanticipated surge in support from rural and low income white voters. Mrs Clinton had indeed been predicted to win the state by most observers, leading in opinion polls throughout the campaign.

Incumbent Wisconsin Republican Senator Ron Johnson was also re-elected, defeating former Senator Russ Feingold. The Republican Party also retained its majority in the US House of Representatives, led by the Wisconsin-based Speaker of the House, Congressman Paul Ryan.
