Donald Trump has won Mississippi and its six electoral votes.
That brings his Electoral College total in Tuesday’s election to 66, compared with Hillary Clinton’s 48.
The outcome was not unexpected. Mississippi has voted for Republicans in every presidential election starting with 1972, with the exception of Democrat Jimmy Carter in 1976.
Trump has won Alabama and its nine electoral votes after Senator Jeff Sessions endorsed him.
It takes 270 votes to win the US presidency.
The results continue the state’s streak of voting for Republicans every presidential election since 1980.-AP
