Regardless of whether you’re With Her or Team Trump or put off by the political climate entirely, Tuesday’s election promises to be one for the history books.
When the votes are tallied, America will either see Hillary Clinton become the nation’s first female (and former first lady) president, or Donald Trump, who made his mark in business (and on reality TV), score the White House in his political debut.
In addition, the fallout of the blistering campaign’s effect on state races, and thus Congress, will make itself known.
Will the presidential election be a squeaker or a landslide? Will we witness smug winners? Sore losers? And what will the bitterly divisive contest mean to America — and Americans — moving forward?
We’ve polled the networks so you know where and when to hunker down with your favorite anchors and commentators for a long night of numbers and analysis, leading to a new day in American politics.
