  • New Hampshire, Michigan and Arizona are all too close to call.
  • Trump is projected to win key battlegrounds Ohio and North Carolina.
  • He was the apparent winner in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, NBC reported.
  • The GOP nominee is also the apparent winner in Florida, according to NBC News.
  • Trump is also the projected winner in Utah, a state that featured a relatively close three-way race.
