Donald Trump won. Hillary Clinton lost. The Clinton campaign has conceded.
To quote Winston Churchill:
Now is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.
Results aren't official yet but it's a good time to remember that states elect presidents, not individuals. The winner-take-all to electoral votes in 48 of 50 states means someone can win the popular vote and lose the electoral college votes.
And so I present the current numbers:
You will note that Hillary Clinton has 170,513 more votes than Donald Trump - but 58 fewer electoral votes.
*41 electoral votes still to be apportioned.
