1:50 AM: Republican Donald Trump is the next President of the United States after breaking through Democrat Hillary Clinton's blue wall and running the table on the electoral map. History has been made.
Trump currently sits at 254 electoral votes, but will secure the necessary 270 votes as totals are finalized. Clinton sits at just 218 votes. Trump is ahead in Michigan and has already won Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
The night started in Florida, where Trump easily beat Clinton despite heavy Latino turnout in the state.
He moved to North Carolina and up to Ohio. He then shifted to states Clinton saw as safe: Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.
The hidden Trump voter, which was a point of controversy during the race, turned out to be a real phenomenon that put Trump over the top. Most polling across the board, both state and national, was wrong. Media outlets predicted Clinton dominating in electoral votes and she did not.
