9:32 am
mr trump has won 278 electoral-college votes, taking him over the goal of 270 to claim the keys to the white house. let's start with our virtual lincoln memorial and swing down to our spot we have been using here, just behind the washington monument if you are just waking up, i'm not sure i could convey the full drama, but let me do it through the chronology. watching the clock is quite a useful way of working out exactly how mr trump took the path to the white house. 9pm, eastern standard time for the usa, we saw a bunch of states coming for hillary clinton that were democrat before. no surprises before, nor in the republican states that came in for trump, kansas, alabama, tennessee and $0 on, but the atmosphere, as we were discussing, was very much that hillary clinton was on target for the white house. the polls looked good for her, the atmosphere around the end point
9:33 am
of her campaign also looked good, and that was the temperature of our discussions and our outlook - until this happened. i'll put this against the monument, those electoral-college votes‘ watch the next time change, let's get the time exactly right on this‘ 10:23pm. ok, so new mexico and connecticut come in for the democrats. fairly routine“. but ohio comes in for the republicans, with 18 electoral-college votes. the other ones have been won by the losing republican candidate last time, mitt romney, so they weren't anything to write home about, but ohio was, ohio was a sign that trump was doing better than the guy who lost for the republicans four years ago, and that suddenly made us think, oh, my goodness, maybe if the motivations for the voters in ohio work across other states, he could be on for a huge shock here. let's take those electoral-college votes and let's put them there,
9:34 am
beside the washington monument, and you see here trump then pulls ahead for the first time. but there's quite a lot of petrol in the clinton tank, because if you go to 11:30pm, you will see she takes california with 55 electoral-college votes. she also keeps virginia, which was nip and tuck for some of the night. looking on the republican side, florida is donald trump's response, a massive win for him, with 29 electoral-college votes, and despite all the talk that florida's minorities would get together and stop trump winning there, he didn't, he took the state - it was very, very close - but at this point he starts to look like he is within range of the white house. 11:30pm eastern standard time, so 3:30am in the morning uk time, 222 electoral-college votes, the line at the top of the monument is 270, that is the finishing line‘ let's watch what happened next. so, 2:48am in the usa. some main districts come in,
9:35 am
the obvious ones for the democrats, and then another great surprise, signs that the trump strategy is working across states, older, white, male voters in particular being super motivated pennsylvania goes red, and watch the columns as the numbers go up‘ now he is within touching distance of the white house, the whole conversation changed‘ hillary clinton is somewhere backstairs, in what was to have been a victory rally, and everyone is waiting to hear from trump and waiting to see what happens next‘ what happened next was at 3:04am, and it‘s wisconsin, with a rather modest ten electoral-college votes, but here we go”, let's see the trump numbers go through the line. 275, and at that point, in fact it was whispered in his ear as he was on stage making his speech, at that point donald trump knew he was president, and wisconsin was last with the republicans in the 805,
9:36 am
i'll clearthese down for you, one more sight we should see before we leave our virtual area, come with me, and we willjust bring you to our white house here‘ despite all expectations, it will be donald trump and the republican party's fireworks that are over the white house later, he's won the 2016 us presidential election, one of the most extraordinary elections any of us have ever seen, and he's won it by painting the map in a way that's dramatic as what happened for the republicans in their heydays in the 805. one one of one of the state hillary clinton looks one of the state hillary clinton looks like she will one of the state hillary clinton looks like she will hold onto looks like she will hold onto its california, she looks like she will hold onto its california, she has got california, she has got 60% of the vote, california, she has got 60% of the vote, compared to california, she has got 60% of the vote, compared to 35% vote, compared to 35% for donald trump.

10:15 am
mr trump took the path to the white house. 9pm, eastern standard time for the usa, we saw a bunch of states come in for hillary clinton that were democrat before‘ no surprises, nor in the republican states that came in for trump, kansas, alabama, tennessee and $0 on, but the atmosphere, as we were discussing, was very much that hillary clinton was on target for the white house. the polls looked good for her, the atmosphere around the end point of her campaign also looked good, and that was the temperature of our discussions and our outlook - until this happened. i'll put these against the monument, those electoral-college votes‘ watch the next time change, let's get the time exactly right on this‘ 10:23pm. ok, so new mexico and connecticut come in for the democrats. fairly routine“. but ohio comes in for the republicans, with 18 electoral-college votes.
10:16 am
the other ones have been won by the losing republican candidate last time, mitt romney, so they weren't anything to write home about, but ohio was, ohio was a sign that trump was doing better than the guy who lost for the republicans four years ago, and that suddenly made us think, oh, my goodness, maybe if the motivations for the voters in ohio work across other states, he could be on for a huge shock here. let's take those electoral-college votes and let's put them there, beside the washington monument, and you see here trump then pulls ahead for the first time. but there's still quite a lot of petrol in the clinton tank, because if you go to 11:30pm, you will see she takes california, with 55 electoral-college votes. she also keeps virginia, which was nip and tuck for some of the night. looking on the republican side, florida is donald trump's response, a massive win for him, with 29 electoral-college votes, and despite all the talk that florida's minorities would get together and stop trump winning there, he didn't, he took the state - it was very, very close -
10:17 am
but at this point he starts to look like he is within range of the white house. 11:30pm eastern standard time, so 3:30am in the morning uk time, 222 electoral-college votes, the line at the top of the monument is 270, that is the finishing line‘ let's watch what happened next. so, 2:48am in the usa. some maine districts come in‘ the obvious ones for the democrats, and then another great surprise, signs that the trump strategy is working across states, older, white, male voters in particular being super motivated by trump's campaign. pennsylvania goes red, and watch the columns as the numbers go up‘ now he is within touching distance of the white house, the whole conversation changed‘ hillary clinton is somewhere backstairs, in what was to have been a victory rally, and everyone is waiting to hear from trump and waiting to see what happens next‘ what happened next was at 3:04am, and it‘s wisconsin, with a rather
10:18 am
modest ten electoral-college votes, but here we go”, let's see the trump numbers go through the line. 275, and at that point, in fact it was whispered in his ear as he was on stage making his speech, at that point donald trump knew he was president, and wisconsin was last with the republicans in the 805, i'll clearthese down for you, one more sight we should see before we leave our virtual area, come with me, and we willjust bring you to our white house here‘ despite all expectations, it will be donald trump and the republican party's fireworks that are over the white house later, he's won the 2016 us presidential election, one of the most extraordinary elections any of us have ever seen, and he's won it by painting the map in a way that's dramatic
10:19 am
as what happened for the republicans in their heydays in the 805. jeremy jeremy vine reporting jeremy vine reporting for us, the election hasn'tjust been about the president. congress has also seen elections for both the senate and the house and the house of representatives, with republicans retaining control of both chambers‘ in the senate, only a third of the 100 senators were up for re-election. the republicans lost one seat but still maintained a small majority with 51. there are still two seats to be declared, in the house of representatives, the republicans also hold on to the lower chamber, they lost seven seats to the democrats out of a possible 435, but still hold on to a significant majority. there are still 8 seats yet to be declared‘ i can now talk to kate andrews from the institute of economic affairs, who's also with republicans overseas, and russ shaw from tech london advocates at the london stock exchange.
