The two candidates that no one thought would have a chance just crushed it in New Hampshire. Are the establishment GOP candidates and Hillary scared yet that they have no chances at a nomination?
Donald Trump claimed victory in the New Hampshire Republican primary elections on Tuesday, predicting before a raucous crowd in Manchester that he’ll also win the next presidential nominating contest in South Carolina.
In a 15-minute speech full of greatest-hits moments that followed a much longer oration from Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders – who had just grabbed the Democratic Party’s brass ring from Hillary Clinton – Trump swung in the socialist politician’s direction.
‘In all fairness we have to congratulate him,’ Trump told a packed banquet hall three hours after polls closed and he was declared the winner.
‘He wants to give away our country, folks! He wants to give it away. We’re not going to let it happen!’
With 92 per cent of the votes counted, Trump led the field with 35.17 per cent of the total vote and 10 delegates, John Kasich was in second with 15.84 per cent and three delegates, Ted Cruz third with 11.66 per cent and two delegates, Jeb Bush fourth with 11.07 per cent and two delegates, Marco Rubio fifth with 10.52 per cent and Chris Christie sixth with 7.47 per cent.
Trump has yet to unlace his rhetorical boxing gloves in the eight months since he launched his unlikely presidential bid. He also hasn’t stopped hammering home a reliable menu of conservative red meat pledges. (Daily Mail)
Here were the results of the Democrat primary in New Hampshire where Hillary got owned:
‘Because of the huge voter turnout, we won!’ he said, as they yelled back ‘huuuuuuuge!’
Speaking in Hooksett an hour after polls closed, and Sanders fast victory was announced, Clinton congratulated the Vermont senator on his victory tonight in the state she won during her 2008 bid but lost today and declared, ‘I still love New Hampshire, and I always will.’
‘And here’s what we’re gonna do. Now we take this campaign to the entire country,’ she continued. ‘We’re gonna fight for every vote in every state.’
Clearly pointing at Sanders, she said: ‘People have every right to be angry. But they are also hungry. They are hungry for solutions.’
The Democratic fight now moves to Nevada, which holds its caucuses a week from Saturday.
South Carolina, where Clinton runs 30 points strong in front of Sanders, votes a week after that.
