Hillary Clinton has beat Donald Trump in America's most populous state, the Associated Press reported at 11 p.m. Eastern.

California has been a reliable Democratic stronghold since Bill Clinton turned it blue in 1992. Democratic margins of victory in the state have grown since then, with Barack Obama notching a 23-point victory in 2012. The state's 55 electoral votes are critical for Democratic presidential candidates, placing them a fifth of the way to the White House with victory one state. 

Heading into Election Day, polls projected a Clinton win of at least 20 points.
