The first decisions of the US presidential election have been taken. There have been no surprises so far. As expected, Joe Biden is ahead of the East Coast states. Donald Trump wins the states in which he was also ahead in the polls.

That could mean he also wins the disputed swing states of Pennsylvania and Ohio.
