Donald Trump flipped the state of Iowa Tuesday in the 2016 presidential race, moving a state into the Republican column that backed President Obama in the past two election cycles, and crippling Hillary Clinton’s chances of winning the White House.

The polls closed in Iowa at 10 p.m.

Mr. Obama carried the state by almost six percentage points in 2012, and almost ten percentage points in 2008.

Of the 270 electoral votes needed to win the election, Iowa is worth 6.
