Who’s Winning in North Carolina?

flag_of_north_carolinaNorth Carolina has 15 electoral votes.

Solidly Republican for decades, the Tar Heel State was put in play when Barack Obama flipped it in 2008 with a narrow victory. Mitt Romney took the state back for Republicans four years later. It has been referred to as Clinton’s “checkmate” state as a win there would likely seal her victory.

As of Monday, the RealClearPolitics average of the most recent North Carolina polls showed Trump with a 1.2-point lead in a two-way race, and Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight gave Clinton a 51.7% percent chance of winning the state.

The polls close at 7:30 p.m. eastern time. We will update with the reported results as soon as they come in.

UPDATE –– 11:06 pm ET: Donald Trump has won North Carolina.
