Who won the New Hampshire primary 2016: How Bernie Sanders is killing Hillary Clinton’s hopes?
Exit polls in New Hampshire primary suggest that the two candidates who were expected to win have won handsomely here. Donald Trump, the billionaire businessman has reportedly won the Republican primary while socialist Bernie Sanders has won the Democratic fight trouncing his only challenger Hillary Clinton.
If the exit polls turn out to be on the dot, it means Hillary Clinton is in serious trouble. Analysts suggest that in the case of a huge win for Sanders, the blame game will begin in the Hillary campaign and several people who have been part of her campaign may be removed unceremoniously. After showing a tough fight in Iowa, polls suggest that Vermont senator Sanders has closed the gap in national polls too and is now neck and neck in the fight to bag the Democratic nomination for presidential polls.
On the other hand, a Donald Trump win here means that he regains his momentum after a shocking loss in Iowa.
In the meantime in very early returns, the three Republicans running behind Trump were Ohio Gov. John Kasich, former Florida governor Jeb Bush, and Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas), who won the Iowa caucuses last week. Behind all of them was Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.), who had been seen as the strongest challenger to Trump until a disastrous debate performance on Saturday, in which New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie attacked Rubio and the senator responded by repeating the same talking point over and over.
But the man who seems to have destroyed the chances of Rubio doesnâ€™t seem to have benefited at all from his own performance. Meanwhile when it comes to the Democratic race, Sanders was projected as the winner over former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, who had been seen as her partyâ€™s prohibitive favorite a year ago.
