As of 6:30PM Central Time the Associated Press is reporting that Trump has won Arizona. This would make it impossible for Hillary Clinton to qualify for the Presidency with pledged Electoral College votes, as Donald Trump has exceeded the 270 votes needed to win.
Note: The Arizona results have not yet been certified. As AP analyst Michael McDonald notes, “just because the media calls something does not mean that that’s actually the outcome of the election.”
Note: Elements of the Democrat Party have not given up. There is a concerted effort, as reported below, to convince Republican-pledged Electoral College Electors to switch their votes to Hillary Clinton. With 20 electoral college votes still up for grabs it is conceivable that Hillary would need to “flip” just 21 of Trump’s 290 pledged votes to take the Presidency. The #NeverTrump movement may come back into play on December 19th, when the Electoral College votes.
