Trump wins; local precincts remain unreported
- Published: November 9, 2016
Defying pundits and polls, Donald Trump turned the election map red last night, winning in the battleground states of Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Florida and Ohio to clinch 279 electoral votes — and the presidency. Ohio was expected to be a tight race, but Trump took the state handily, 52.1 percent to Clinton’s 43.5.
In Greene County, voters favored Trump even more strongly, with about 60 percent backing the controversial Republican. Seventy-one percent of registered voters in the county cast a vote. Precinct-level information from the Greene County Board of Elections is not yet available, so returns from Yellow Springs and Miami Township precincts remain unknown as of Thursday morning.
As soon as these results are released, the News will report them online.
