Despite the night still being in its relatively early stage, we are getting signs across the country of how this election is playing out. In the states of South Carolina and Georgia the delivery of results has been rather slow.
Traditionally and by the predictions from before today, Georgia was one of the lesser battleground states for the race for the White House.
South Carolina meanwhile, should be a secure state for Trump.
Historically both of these states are solid holds for the Republican party, but from what we are hearing on the ground here in the US there is every chance both of these states will fall into Democratic party hands.
The polls in South Carolina and Georgia were one of the first to close at 7pm ET. Mitt Romney claimed South Carolina in 2012 with 54% of the vote. Georgia delivered a similar margin of victory for Romney.
Of course these proved not enough to prevent a second term in office for Barack Obama.
The results are slowly trickling in from both of these states, but at this stage they are both too close to call.
