Trump wins + congratulations to him. My guesstimate on the America election had Clinton winning but go that wrong

My call as the polls closed
Thought Clinton would win: predictions on the key swing states is as follows:
Clinton to win Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Wisconsin,
Trump to win Arizona, Georgia, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio,
Many front pages in the states make interesting reading at this time but probably the best is this by the Miami Herald: http://www.miamiherald.com/opinion/editorials/article113192908.html

Update: well clearly I / all the other watchers on TVs got that wrong. Trump wins very strongly and congratulations to him. We will make the uk / USA relationship work, as the PM has just outlined.
The BBC analysis of why he won - with the benefit of hindsight - is here: http://www.bbc.com/news/election-us-2016-37918303
