Who will win the electoral college? – BBC

The winner of the US presidential election is not always the candidate who wins the popular vote – the path to victory is to win a majority in the electoral college.

Each state has a certain number of electors who elect the president – the number depends on the state’s population – and the trick is to win enough states to stack up 270 electors’ votes.

Below are what the maps looked like at 1200 GMT on Saturday 1 November.
