US election 2016: Women wear pantsuits in support of Hillary Clinton

Women have reportedly turned out in large number to vote as America begins voting on 8 November. As per reports, many women across America have come out to vote wearing pantsuits in support of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

Hillary Clinton have apparently drawn a lot of woman supporters after Trump's campaign got severely hit a few weeks ago when he was heard boasting about sexual assault in some leaked video.

Hillary Clinton along with the United States first lady Michelle Obama have urged young voters and women to vote in the election.

Addressing the huge gatherings, Clinton has raised her voice for women dignity and also expressed gratitude towards first lady 'for her eloquent, powerful defense of that basic value.'

Clinton registered her first 'win' in the 2016 elections by four votes to two against Trump soon after midnight in the remote Dixville Notch, New Hampshire.

While Clinton is close to victory mark, Trump must win most of the battleground states to clinch the magic figure of 270 Electoral College votes.

An estimated 200 million people are eligible to cast their votes to elect the country's 45th president along with hundreds of Congressmen and members of state legislatures and local civic bodies.
