US Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump cast his ballot in New York City on Election Day.

He arrived at a Manhattan polling place with wife Melania, daughter Ivanka and her family just before 11 a.m. on Tuesday.

Trump paused to wave to supporters who had gathered outside.

Inside, he bought a bag of cookies from kids having a bake sale and greeted supporters before casting his ballot.

The New York businessman began Election Day with a ritual call to the "Fox & Friends" morning news show. "I'm a little bit superstitious," he said. "I've won many primaries speaking to you first in the morning."

A Reuters/Ipsos States of the Nation poll gave Democratic rival Hillary Clinton a 90 percent chance of defeating Trump and said she was on track to win 303 electoral college votes out of 270 needed, to Trump's 235.
