Sen. Bernie Sanders and the New York billionaire Donald Trump have won the Democratic and Republican presidential primaries in New Hampshire respectively, this time the victories is more decisive that their was a power tussle among the Republicans battling for second, third and fourth place.
Ohio Gov. John Kasich finished in second, he is a relatively moderate candidate who might face a tougher time unifying the party behind him in the next upcoming primary states. And the third position was taken by Sen. Ted Cruz, there was a close and tough race for third between Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas who was the winner of the Iowa caucuses last week and former Florida governor Jeb Bush.
Sen. Marco Rubio then follows, he had been previously seen as the strongest contender to Trump until last Saturday’s disastrous debate performance, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie gave Rubio a disarming strike and the senator responded by repeating the same talking point over and over.
Christie came behind Rubio, making him the last among the four “establishment” candidates.
The results coming for his challengers should be a good one for Trump, since it is almost certain that a majority of them would continue on to the next primaries, hereby breaking down the voters who want to see Trump defeated.
Meanwhile in the Democratic race, Sanders was as victorious over former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, who before now had been seen as the Democrats prohibitive favorite a year ago. Sanders stated….
“Nine months ago, we began our campaign here in New Hampshire, we had no campaign organization. We had no money. And we were taking on the most powerful political organization in the United States of America,” Sanders said to his supporters. “And tonight, with what it appears to be a record-breaking voter turnout, because of a huge voter turnout – and I say YUGE! – we won,” Sanders said, poking fun at the New York City accent he shares with Trump. The crowd had yelled “YUUUGE!” along with him.
