Bernie Sanders won! I'm so happy. However, realistically, I believe that Hillary will be the nominee, as well as Trump. And Hillary will defeat Trump by a bigger margin than Obama defeated Romney!

Trump and Sanders are speaking to a lot of the same people; working folks who are tired of seeing America's resources going to the already wealthy in big chunks, while they work longer and harder w/o getting ahead. I think both have big audiences.

Agreed. Working families are such and tired of being slaves to the ultra-wealthy.

The comparison was only with respect to their performance in New Hampshire. At this point, Cruz looks likely to edge out Rubio for fourth.

Beenie didn't must win, he won everything and every demographic. He gave Clinton a shellacking.

Well, he spent $36 million on ads in NH and so far has 3,900 votes so he's under $10,000 per vote... better than Iowa. Gotta be pleased with that!

2016 State Primaries and Caucuses Results - New Hampshire | Politics | Fox News

wow - only 15% of the votes counted and they've already projected a winner....I know, they poll outside the precincts. Some voters are just leaving the precinct.....why did they bother?

Noise. Here's the signal: the country is more polarized than ever, and the vast, vast, vast majority of Sanders supporters will vote for Hillary over whomever the GOP nominates.
