Trump, Sanders win big in New Hampshire

As predicted by the polls, Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders registered big wins at the New Hampshire primaries. Trump’s populist and angry rhetoric pushed him ahead of the crowded GOP field and the socialist Vermont senator bested Hillary Clinton with over 60% of the Democratic voters.

Trump easily won the Granite State with  35% over Ohio’s John Kasich and Ted Cruz, who edged out Jeb Bush for third. (Data used was at 88% of the precinct’s reporting, so Bush could catch/pass Cruz as they are that close for 3rd and 4th place.)

“Wow, wow, wow,” Trump said. “We are going to make America great again!”

The Celebrity TV show star rambled off thank yous to his deceased parents and a brother before churning out more crowd pleasing remarks.

“We never went negative because we have more good to sell than to spend our time being critical of somebody else,” Kasich told supporters, vowing “to reshine America, to restore the spirit of America and to leave no one behind.”

Sanders proclaimed his victory to be the result of a “huuuuge” turnout, hopeful that his performance will now propel him into a nationwide battle against Clinton as he attempts to shatter the firewall among ethnically diverse voters that she reportedly has built in South Carolina and other Southern states.

“Tonight, we have sent a message that will echo from Wall Street to Washington, from Maine to California,” Sanders said, before predicting that the race against Clinton was going to quickly get even more contentious.

“They are throwing everything at me except the kitchen sink and I have the feeling that the kitchen sink is coming pretty soon as well,” he said.

Despite his alleged surge in Iowa, Marco Rubio appears to have been set back by his awful debate performance on Saturday, finishing fifth, well behind Bush. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has a strong showing, drawing 7.5% with Carly Fiorina at 4.2% and Ben Carson at 2.3%.

While there hasn’t been a recent South Carolina poll, the recent data from Real Clear Politics has Trump at 36%, way ahead of Cruz at 19.7%, Rubio 12,7%, Bush at 10%, Carson 8.7% and Christie at 2.3%. Note: as of now, none of those polls taken in South Carolina were conducted after the Iowa caucus, even if they were published later.
