    US: Polls open in pivotal presidential election

    Nov.8, NY: Polling stations have opened as the first ballots were cast in one of the most divisive US presidential elections, pitting Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton against her Republican rival Donald Trump.

    The kick-off in the early hours of Tuesday marked the end to a bitter campaign as Clinton and Trump presented radically different visions of how to lead the US.

    A Reuters/Ipsos States of the Nation poll gave Clinton a 90 percent chance of defeating Trump and said she was on track to win 303 electoral college votes out of 270 needed, to Trump's 235.

    The Democratic nominee voted with husband Bill Clinton at an elementary school near their home in Chappaqua, New York state.
