Tens of millions of Americans go to the polls today to elect the 45th President of the United States after one of the most acrimonious campaigns I can remember. of course many millions have already voted in ‘early voting’ as the Americans call it.
On the face of it the more experienced Democratic candidate Hilary Clinton should win if only on the basis of having a better organised campaign on the ground. The polls and the betting markets both point to a convincing Clinton win. I can not say I have been impressed by either candidate and I do wonder whether these are the really the best two candidates a nation of 300 million people can find!
