CNN projects that Hillary Clinton will win Virginia

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - CNN has projected that Democrat Hillary Clinton will emerge as the winner over Republican Donald Trump.

With 93 percent of the precincts reporting at 10:20 p.m. Tuesday, Clinton had 47.57 percent of the vote while Trump had 46.66 percent.

In the weeks leading up to the election, polls showed Clinton's once-large lead shrinking to Trump, but she was up 6 percentage points in the last poll by Wason Center for Public Policy at Christopher Newport University.

In the past two presidential elections, Virginia voters chose President Barack Obama.
