ATLANTA -- Republican nominee Donald Trump won the state of Georgia en route to winning the presidency, NBC News and the Associated Press report.
Even as voters went to the polls on Tuesday, Georgia Democrats hoped that Hillary Clinton could turn the state blue for the first time since 1992. Her husband, former president Bill Clinton, was the party's nominee that year.
But unofficial results and exit polling indicated that Trump was dominant in much of the state, and Clinton's margins in metro Atlanta couldn't overtake the Republican nominee.
The state's demographics are on track to make Democrats more competitive, as more minorities move to the state and the percentage of white registered voters continues to decline. But experts say the numbers alone didn't make Georgia poachable for Clinton this year.
