Trump wins! GOP also keeps control of US Senate, House


by NW Spotlight

Once again defying the odds, Donald Trump has won the U.S. presidential election!

Yesterday, Real Clear Politics polling averages showed Hillary with a 39 electoral vote lead over Trump, but today they are showing election results with Donald Trump breaking the 270 electoral votes needed to win.

In addition to winning the White House last night, Republicans also held on to control of both the U.S. Senate and House. Politico notes “Trump will not only take the White House in 2017 but Republicans will control both chambers of Congress, where they have an appetite to unravel much of the progressive agenda enacted over the last eight years.”
