Americans will start heading to the polls in a few hours to vote in a historic election that will either see business magnate Donald Trump or former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as the next US president

Clinton promised to build a "big-hearted" America out of the wreckage of contentious presidential race that has broken nearly every conceivable norm in US political life.
"Our core values are tested in this election," she said, adding that Americans should not accept "a dark and divisive vision", but "a hopeful, inclusive and a big-hearted America."
"She says division would the outcome of a Trump presideny," Halkett said.

Trump delivered a sprawling speech in the crucial state of Florida, rallying against Washington, the healthcare system and Clinton, telling his supporters it was their last chance to change a broken political system.
"Hilary Clinton is being protected by a totally rigged system," he said, questioning the legitimacy of the the FBI's rapid review of a Clinton aide's emails and targeting what he called "the Washington establishment".
"My contract with the American voter begins with a plan to end government corruption, and take back our country ... from the special interests who I know so well. When we win tomorrow, we are going to drain the swamp."

"He also says he will repeal and replace the Obamacare, the affordable healthcare act as it is officially known in the US. And he says he will bring jobs and energy to the country," Fisher said.
Both Clinton and Trump are by far the most unpopular candidates to run for the Oval Office in the past 30 years, according joint polling by ABC News and the Washington Post newspaper.
