Cruz is still vying for third place, not far from Jeb Bush's heels. Look I don't like him, but I am surprised he is not near the bottom. Rubio is definitely going down.

Amazing!

Kasich is number 2. I have to say that people there are quite smart.

Sanders 58% That is awesome.

Default NH results

Shocking: Fiorina defeats Carson by x2!
Give me a break, she gets 4.4 he got 2.2, and she wasnt in the debates but the good doctor stood next to Trump. I bet voters saw him stand there like a dunce, and his answers made no sense.

Trump won all, Kasich is next. I bet now Bloomberg is going in... and wins!
Carson and Christie must go.

I assume Carson and Fiorina will drop out after NH and maybe Christie unless he does better in NH when more votes are counted. Heck, Rubio is looking pretty bad. I now there is a lot of money behind Rubio, but I wonder if Rubio is damaged goods after his robot speech patterns. Maybe he stays around a few more days or another week to see if all the donors close their pockets, and they likely will for Rubio.

Isn't it something - just last week Rubio was the annointed one. Now he's in 5th place (so far). And doing worse that Bush. Who would have dreamed?

Sanders is crushing Trump in polls. Much higher than Hillary. And if they bring an establishment candidate, Sanders will get a huge number of the anti-establishment vote which is huge this election. Trump and Sanders campaigners were specifically targeting the same people in NH according to media reports. The cross-over appeal is very real.

Did you see the independent vote in NH: 72-27 in favor of Sanders. That's a crushing defeat for Hillary in yet another general election swing state. Independent voters in swing states are what win elections in addition to bringing more people into the political process, young people, disillusioned people etc. That's what the Sanders campaign is doing.

To me it's not the least bit surprising that Sanders won big with millennials and indepdents, they comprise the majority of his base.

The surprising notion is that he won big with women 54% to 44% according to CNN's exit polling data. Looks like Hillary still has significant inroads to make with a voting bloc that she probably expected to have locked down
