US Presidential Election 2016: As Donald Trump Takes Lead, Here's How Internet Reacted
Both candidates left multitudes of Americans dissatisfied with their choices.

Capping a presidential campaign of venom, audacity and history, Donald Trump scored major victories in Florida, Ohio and North Carolina on Tuesday, building steam in a stunningly competitive contest with Hillary Clinton that raged across battlegrounds late into the night.

Clinton pocketed Virginia — a squeaker like Florida — and both candidates rolled up victories in their predictable strongholds. But nothing else was predictable as the man who faced a narrow path to the presidency inched closer to it, in an election that laid bare the divisions gnawing at the nation.

Trump flipped Iowa, a state that twice voted for Democrat Barack Obama. He won Utah, a slam-dunk for most Republicans but a state where many die-hard Republicans were said to find him intolerable.

Both candidates left multitudes of Americans dissatisfied with their choices.

And now as Trump takes a lead over the Democrat candidate, here's what the social media users had to say:

Whosoever wins in this election, the 45th president will inherit an anxious nation, deeply divided by economic and educational opportunities, race and culture.
