NYT adjusts its prediction — Trump's probability of winning skyrockets to a toss-up

The New York Times's election probability meter — which last night favored Democrat Hillary Clinton by 84 percent — made a complete turnaround halfway through the night Tuesday.

With a string of victories in middle America, Donald Trump rocketed through the probability chart, putting his chances of victory at 58 percent.

The race is still too close to call, with a razor-thin margin separating the two candidates in the crucial swing state of Florida.

The swing state of Virginia, which typically trends Democratic, looked to be a toss-up as well, with Clinton taking a very slight lead with 89.8 percent of the vote reporting.

The NYT's election predictor went back and forth throughout much of the night Tuesday, with Clinton and Trump's probability going back and forth.

As every pundit keeps telling us, it's going to be a long night.
