All eyes on Clinton and Trump as #AmericaDecides elections 2016

Americans will head to the polls on Tuesday to decide who will succeed president Barack Obama in the presidential race.

The last two candidates standing - Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton - have held no punches against each other at various rallies and interviews across the country.

It's been a distasteful campaign... some have labelled it a post-factual campaign.

Brookes Spectpr, US foreign policy expert

702's John Robbie spoke to US foreign policy expert, Brookes Spector, about what these elections mean for global politics.

He said that the nature of the two candidates' campaigns have allowed the media to use its influence to sway the vote to either of the two.

Trump could be the first billionaire elected to the White House, while Clinton could be the first female president in US history.

The first polling stations to open for voting are in the East Coast states, at 1pm CAT.

Listen to the conversation below:

The real challenge going forward is what happens with those millions of people who became Trump supporters rather than just Republicans? Where do they go in the future politically?
