Trump beats Clinton in Tennessee student mock election

If Tennessee students were the only ones voting in this year's election, it appears Donald Trump would claim the presidency by a hefty margin. 

The Tennessee Secretary of State released the results Wednesday of the first-ever statewide student mock election.

Republican Donald Trump beat Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in the mock election, with Trump receiving 53.1 percent of the votes compared to Hillary's 34.3 percent.
