Two more projections in now. Ohio and Idaho are both predicted to go to Donald Trump.
Ohio, the Buckeye State, was a major election battleground – it has backed the winner of nearly every presidential race over the last 200 years, including Trump in 2016.
There was no surprise with Idaho, with its four electoral college votes – the state has backed Republican candidates in the last 13 presidential races.
Anthony Scaramucci, one of Trump’s most bombastic former White House officials, has been speaking to Katty Kay and Andrew Neil on our TV election special programme.
“I think Joe Biden is gonna pull this out. He’s got Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania leaning towards him,” Scaramucci said. The former Trump ally is an outspoken critic of the president now, and didn’t hold back tonight.
Explaining Trump’s better-than-expected performance in some areas, Scaramucci said: “People see Donald Trump as an avatar for their anger.”
Despite that, the former official declared that Trump “blew the coronavirus pandemic.”
“He trashed the economy. He’s praising despots and trashing democratic leaders across the world.”
But, Scaramucci admitted, his one-time boss always has the ability to surprise.
