Donald Trump managed to capture one-third of the Republican votes cast in New Hampshire and that, by virtue of the still crowded field of candidates, guaranteed him a yugge(sic)victory. My post of yesterday, here projecting that Trump could not meet expectations in New Hampshire did not materialize. So as a prognosticator I came up short on this one.
Senator Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump each decisively won their party's primary in New Hampshire Tuesday, a result that seemed impossible six months ago. Now it seems possible that a self proclaimed socialist and a former Democrat turned Republican could face off in the presidential election this coming November. Trump scored more than a third of those who voted Republican in the primary.
Bernie Sanders wins New Hampshire in blowout fashion. Taking home 60% of the state's vote, he leaves Hillary Clinton with just 38%, marking the largest victory of 2016. This is the first time since the primaries and caucuses began that any candidate from either party earned 60% of a state's vote.
