Donald Trump will be the next President of the United States, after pulling off a major upset against Hillary Clinton, with just a handful of states still counting votes. The Associated Press dubbed Trump the President-Elect around 2:30am Wednesday. Clinton called Trump to concede shortly after, MSNBC reported.

Ballots in some close races in major battleground states are still being counted, but Trump has a solid lead and is now projected to have more than the 270 electoral votes needed to win. Here's how the race has played out:

Clinton cancelled her election night speech at the last-minute early on Wednesday, with campaign chairman John Podesta telling supporters at around 2am EST to go home and, before the AP called the race, declining to concede.

None of the third party candidates managed to garner any electoral votes. Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson has won 3.7 million votes so far, or about 3 percent of the national popular vote. Green Party nominee Jill Stein followed with 1 percent and independent candidate Evan McMullin came in below the 1 percent mark.
