Trump wins Iowa, 15 states will decide US election

WASHINGTON: Republican billionaire Donald Trump defeated Democrat Hillary Clinton in the state of Iowa Tuesday, inching closer to winning the White House in a shock upset, television networks projected.

The midwestern US state has six Electoral College votes, moving the Manhattan property mogul closer to the total of 270 needed to claim the US presidency.
Clinton — the 69-year-old Democratic former first lady, senator and secretary of state — began the day as the narrow favorite to win the White House and become America’s first female president.
