Tuesday's election sees the pair face off across all 50 US states as they vie for the 270 electoral college votes required to put them in the White House. Many analysts have suggested this time around, the result may not even be known for several days, with a large number of postal ballots needing to be counted. However, Mr Scaramucci, who was Mr 's Director of Communications for 11 days in 2017, believes the outcome may be clear much more quickly.
